Fountain Pens, Ink, Paper & More

Daily Writing #258 for 2023

The Diplomat Aero was at the top of my wishlist for a long time. I always imagined getting the orange one, but this black stripe version was definitely my second choice, and the price was very right.

I mistakenly imagined it would be more of a consistent red, but it makes sense that it is an orange-red for its namesake, the persimmon.
