Pen:Nakaya Decapod Twist SF
Ink: Sailor Rikyu Cha
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid
Since I have my Nakaya inked up for June, it got me thinking about how I had ordered it *last* June. So here’s a throwback to my first look at the Nakaya Decapod Twist.
It's been a few months since I last posted a Currently Inked. Over this time, I've experimented with the number of pens I have inked up at any time. At one point I had as many as 12 pens inked. It got to be a bit too much to manage. Too many pens to track and maintain. Now I'm trying to keep to 6 inked pens with a complete refresh every month.
October came and went in a flash! With the Scriptus pen showthis past Sunday and yesterday being Halloween, I didn't have much time to prepare my pen + ink combos for November. Without further ado, here they are...
October has been fairly light in terms of travel but duty called. This time the duties as a hockey mom which involved going with my son and his team to the city of Kitchener for a hockey tournament. Originally this was supposed to be a 3 day trip but cut short by the sad reality that our team did not make it into the final day of the tournament. On a positive note, it gave me an opportunity to plan another pen + ink load out.
Apart from my must-bring Hobo and TN, I wanted to bring whatever pens and paper I could fit inside a larger case. The case I had in mind was the A5 sized Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in Bag. I was expecting to travel a lot from rink to rink and I wanted a self-contained writing tool kit that I could bring along.
I’m posting my pen & ink line-up a later than originally planned. I had hoped that a new pen that shipped out at the end of September would have arrived in time to join the October line-up. I decided to go ahead and post my Currently Inked for October and do an addendum for the new pen.
One week after returning from my trip to Philly, I was off to Canada’s capital, Ottawa, for a conference. I barely unpacked but gave some thought to my pen and stationery carry for this 2 day trip. Once again, I dipped into my September pen & ink line-up for this outing. This is what I brought.
First look at the Nakaya Decapod Twist which is a grail pen on / my Wish List.
It’s the unofficial end of summer. The weather is cooler and days are shorter. My little guy is ready for a new school year. It’ll be back to normal routines both at home and work. I echo this sentiment with this a new pen and ink line-up.
