Thoughts Before Filling

I’m going to be on a plane in a few days, so taking my Vac 700 seemed like a good idea, plus I’ve been itching to give my custom grind some use. I’ve also wanted to use Bad Blue Heron because it’s been quite some time since I last had it in a pen. As a precaution I used an already stained barrel for my Vac 700 (I have a spare) just in case this ink stains (the bottle appears stained!).

Thoughts After Cleaning the Pen

I really enjoyed using this ink in such a broad italic nib. The shading was tremendous and quite enjoyable. There appears to have been minimal staining to the pen which was a surprise to me (though I will need to use a bit of elbow grease and some pen flush). I expect this combination will occur again.
