One of the toughest parts of an international move is deciding what to store and what to keep handy. For the past few weeks I have been auditioning my pens for the coveted top-three spots and I think I have it narrowed down to the following (pictured from bottom to top):
- Namiki-Pilot Vanishing Point 2008 LE, medium nib
- Conklin All-American, 1.1mm italic nib
- Lamy 2000, Binderized XF nib
But as soon as I decided on these three, I picked up my Cross Beverly, my Pilot Metropolitan, and my Esterbrook Dollar Pen. And what about my Pelikans? And which ink should I bring?
I have less than week to figure this out. And, you know, to finish packing up everything else.
