my top five inks of 2017, and some other thoughts
Happy new year, everybody! Okay, seems a bit strange to say this two weeks into the new year, and after I posted last week, but you know how it is. I took a quick break to spend time with my family over my holiday break, and I'm ready to jump into 2018 with a post thinking about the old year—strange, I know. But I own about thirty inks, give or take, which is pretty much too many inks for one person to use in a sensible period of time. You know... they're just so tempting. I figured it's been a while since I really took a look at my collection and thought about my favorites, the inks I want to use every time I fill a pen.

review: twsbi diamond 540, and the pendleton brown custom flex nib
Stephen Brown—author of the SBREBrown blog—was selling off some pens in September.

This time around, however, something particular caught my eye: the TWSBI Diamond 540 in amber.
