Utterly Spoiled Rotten

Posted by Dirck on 3 February, 2016

I was making some notes in anticipation of planning the outline of a long piece of writing (as you can tell, very preliminary stages), and used a pencil with an HB lead.  I found that I was getting a sore hand and arm from the demands of the instrument.

Yes.  I have been so pampered by the use of fountain pens that I now find the pressure requirements of a soft-ish pencil onerous and uncomfortable.  A vast and hairy princess am I, complaining of the lump in my tower of mattresses.

Today’s pen: Sheaffer Balance Craftsman
Today’s ink: Jentle blue-black
