Grey Stress

Wherein my Anthracite Pelikan M805 (0.5mm CI) is paired with Diamine Earl Grey.

On my Anthracite Pelikan M805 (0.5mm CI) joined its comrades when it was filled with Diamine Earl Grey. I refilled it 2 times; the last refill was on . The pen was in use for one year and was emptied and cleaned on , saying good-bye to its fellows.

Thoughts Before Filling

We’re heading out on a week vacation tomorrow, and I want to bring my M805s with me. I miss using this pen, and I miss using this ink, and I recall they played well with each other, so I’m doing it again, with the aim to enjoy my vacation.

Thoughts After Cleaning the Pen

I love this pen and ink combination. I would refill it one more time but I feel like it is time to do a full clean of the pen and reset. I have other grey inks, and just put one into rotation. When that one runs dry I may return to this pen with a different grey ink.
