Thanks ideolgyofamadman :)
As to paper, I put together a long-winded bit on that the other day you might want to check out.
Pens… My workhorses remain Pilot’s Parallels, supplemented by the occasional Pilot Plumix, Italic Nib on a Lamy Safari, and a couple Manuscript pens. The manuscript tends to not create the best seal around the cartridge I’ve found, so it’s not one for traveling at all. Pilot and Lamy pens are robust enough to be part of your EDC if you choose, although I haven’t attempted to fly with any of them yet.
Ink: Unless you’re using dip pens, steer clear of “calligraphy” ink and go for fountain pen ink. LIquitex’ Acrylic Ink works pretty well in the parallels, although I haven’t tried the couple bottles I’ve got in my Lamy or the Plumix. Fountain-wise, Private Reserve inks and Noodler’s inks (with the exception of Baystate Blue) work consistently well. Really nothing sold by Goulet is bad from the samples I’ve tried, although I have found De Atraemenis to be more prone to feathering overall on pages that Noodler’s trucks through.
