New nib vs ink writing sample template

New nib vs ink writing sample template

On the weekend I created a new MS Word writing sample template which I will use to document my nib and inks as they pass through my pen rotation. I print the sample template out on A4 sized 52gsm Tomoe River paper and then scan the results to get the image below.

Out of interest I did a calculation of how many nib and ink combinations exist in my collection and sadly found that at my current rate of pen rotation it would take me 163 years to get through them all.
