The Fountain Pen Thread !

Hey fellow RFD nibmeisters, since I didn't see a thread on here for us I decided to start one discuss about our pens, inks and papers.
What is your EDC(Every Day Carry), ink and paper you use ?
For me my EDC is a Jianhao x159 and x450 filled with Waterman Serenity Blue (aka Florida Blue)

I hope your EDC is not as geeky as Steve ! ..LoL

One of the good things I see is kids in private school are still forced to use fountain pens. I had teen who was so worried because he lost his favorite fountain pen, I found his pen in my back seat so it was all good ! :)

Lots of Parker 51 scenes in this awesome film !

Everything costs more in Canada for no apparent reason, I was looking around and stocking up on ink this week the prices are flying off the roof !

I'm a Lamy fan......

Love my 2000 medium. but my daily drivers at work are a couple of Safari Al-star's, all using Lamy blue or red ink.

Doesn't Lamy use proprietary cartridges which can get pretty expensive ?
I am not a fan of cartridges by any means, bottled ink is all I use.

Lamy have converters. I had a Safari with a converter but I regifted it because it felt horrible in the hand.
