Yes this pen is back in use only 44 days after its last time. My new pen, nib & ink selection method continues to throw up quirks. I don’t mind as I love this little tortoiseshell brown pen.

This broad stub nib has to be one of my favourites. A Richard Binder creation, taking a BB nib, grinding it to a stub, thinning the tines slightly to give some spring, and setting it to be a very wet writer. I never get tired of just forming letters with this nib.

This Rohrer & Klingner ink is interesting. Supposedly a black ink, it to my mind is not quite a true black. As you can see from the writing samples below it has almost a greenish look to shaded sections. It maybe just a function of the very broad wet nib but it does give this ink a point of difference.
