TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 07 Feb 2017

I know I am late with this post. Again busy due to workload. But anyways here it is, my blog entry for Tuesday Thoughts.

The thought for today comes from George Sand. She was a noted French Novelist is famous for her so-called rustic novels.

I am using Ranga Zeal which I got from a group buy last year. The pen is inked with the only Noodler Ink I have left ” Noodler’s Antietam“.

It is fitted with #6 Schmidt Broad Nib which is ground to Stub and now it writes exactly to my liking.

Do you ground your own nibs?? Or have you ever tried to do so to suit your handwriting ??

TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 03 January 2017

A Very Happy New Year to you all. Today I am using one of the most beautiful pens ever made “Lamy 2000” and it comes with BB nib. It is filled with GvFC Hazelnut Brown.

The quote of today is inspired by Henry David Thoreau who was an American philosopher, poet, and historian. Thoreau was an ardent and outspoken abolitionist, serving as a conductor on the underground railroad to help escaped slaves make their way to Canada.  He wrote strongly-worded attacks on the Fugitive Slave Law (“Slavery in Massachusetts”).

The pen writes sublimely and in my opinion, is one of the greatest pens of all time. Simple yet powerful design.

Once again happy new year to all.

The lovely ink in use is KWZ IG Turquoise Ink  and writes super wet and has an amazing shading properties on Fabriano Ego Paper. I really love the paper and in my opinion is far better than the Rhodia 80 Gsm dot pad.

Tuesday Thoughts – 18 October 2016

After a brief hiatus of an approx one month, I am back with Tuesday Thoughts.

 

And today’s thought comes from the pioneer of economics and political science in India, one of the most influential teachers of India, Chanakya. There is a Diplomatic enclave in Delhi which is named after Chanakya and is calledChanakyapuri and is one of the most prime and posh destinations of India. Chanakya was the teacher, philosopher, advisor to king Chandragupta and Bindusara. He played an important role in the expansion of Mauryan Empire in India.

Today in use is a pen which is an homage to Conway Stewart Churchill and is made my Manoj of Fosfor Pens.

The pen is Fosfor Knight and is inked with Noodlers Antietam. The nib on the pen is fine Titanium nib made by Ambitious Pens India.

Tuesday Thoughts – 30 August 2016

I have recently been bitten by “Parker” bug and thus in rotation today is one of the vintage iconic pen from Parker stable , Parker 25 – Black LE with medium nib and it is inked with Rohrer and Klingner Fernambuk.

Today’s thought is inspired by American economist, William Raduchel.

The pen is with conical shaped steel nib and it writes wet. I am really thankful to Ravi of Pens Point for arranging this one for me.

Tuesday Thoughts – 23 August 2016

The pen in rotation is Waterman Kultur ( fine nib) and it is inked with Diamine Majestic Blue. The pen is absolute wet writer and the ink has a beautiful stunning golden sheen. I love this ink.

 

The thought inspiration for today comes from Ambrose Bierce, an Amercian writer and critic. And theme for the thought is anger.

The pen is a absolute lovely wet writer but has problem with hard starts. And I wonder why it is not listed on Waterman webpage and I got this pen via my friend whose girl was travelling to France. It is easily available in France in many stationary stores.

The ink is just plain gorgeous, love the flow, the lubrication, the colour and top of that all, the massive sheen.

What are your thoughts about the anger management and this wonderful pen and gorgeous ink?
