So I bought some Sheaffer Skrip cartridges for it and installed the blue one.
That’s it on my Field Notes Pitch Black notebook. I kept spelling Sheaffer wrong here and also I clearly don’t know how to spell unidentified. Grr.
Field Notes isn’t really a notebook that I use a fountain pen with much. Usually I use a pencil (currently a Dixon Ticonderoga 1388 – 2.5 Medium which I think are available everywhere) or a Pilot Hi-Tec-C or any ol’ pen or pencil really. I like the Field Notes, and especially love this Pitch Black edition because while I like blank pages for journaling, I love dot grid for my daily pocket notebook. The dots here are perfect, not too dark. Also like the black cover and the black staples. It’s about the details you know?
Here’s why I don’t use fountain pen, especially not fountain pens with M nibs. Actually it’s not so much better with a Japanese F nib, so really just this Field Notes edition isn’t suited really. (Actually most editions of Field Notes aren’t.) The problem is show through.
Not that that stops me from using fountain pens with it.
I like the blue ink actually, more than I thought I would — sometimes blues and blacks can be somewhat boring. But when I’m done with this cartridge, I just don’t see myself going out to pick up a bottle of Sheaffer Skrip blue. I don’t know, it’s fine, but I don’t feel LOVE. It’s possible though, that I just won’t ever feel love for a blue ink.
