I'm pretty pleased with my box--
moleskine professional notebook
Brause introductory calligraphy set
moleskine 3 pack grid large Cahiers
clairefontaine my essentials notebook
two bottles of ink--scabiosa iron gall and black
purple Varsity disposable pen
7pk V5 roller ball pens
Ahab flex demonstrator
Lamy charcoal medium Safari
Mr. Pen broad italic oblique fountain pen
Three items I already owned but like them so they will get used (scabiosa ink, Ahab, and Brause calligraphy set (but nibs do wear out!)
I'm curious about the "Mr. Pen broad italic oblique." Is that an Italix? Or a Mr. Pen branded pen? Any chance of a pic?
It may be an Italix (searched on Mr. Pen since that is what the box said) but I do recall seeing Italix in the description when I looked it up (I was unfamiliar with the brand.) Apparently it goes for around $50 and it is a nice hefty feeling pen. I will post a picture later (also haven't inked it up yet)
This is an Italix Captain's Commission in burgundy with a right handed broad italic nib.
I think I will need to play around with it a bit to find the right ink combo. I read they tended to write a bit "wet" but it seems a bit dry to me.
Indeed you probably will, but it is a beautiful pen on which to play around! Congrats.
