Sunday Reads: Pens And Horses


In my youth, I was horse crazy. Fond memories. I still love horses, but these days I rarely get closer than the two Baoer Eight Horses fountain pens below.

Five years ago, this was my rotation.

Platinum #3776
Platinum #3776 Century
Lamy AL-Star
Pelikan M400
Pelikan M215
Pilot Namiki Falcon
Sailor 1911
Sailor Sapporo
Baoer Eight Horses in Bronze
Baoer Eight Horses in Copper
Pilot Custom 742FA


Does your pen choice reflect the season?


Someone else must be writing this. How can an inkophile have only one pen inked? At that it’s a leftover from my last review. The Pelikan M215 stub with Sailor Sky High has no use for the other residents on my desk, an Autopoint mechanical pencil and a Sharpie Pen, as slumming is quite beneath it. Unlike fountain pens that dry out quickly, summer heat has no effect on either so they are here for the duration.

Perhaps over the weekend, one of the Baoer Eight Horses will get a fill. Stipula Sepia was such a good match for the custom italic that it might be worth using during the oppressively hot weather ahead. Diamine Mediterranean Blue is gorgeous in the Platinum #3776 MU, but after six months, it’s time for something different. Any suggestions?

Sticking to one pen for the lazy days of summer does sound awfully inviting. Does your pen rotation reflect the season? If so, how?
