I was given a new ink pen in a *beautiful* wooden box to hold pens, nibs, ink, for our anniversary. Just in time for Inktober! Did several small doodles on various papers on Day 1. These two are a scrap of some handmade (maybe) rice (maybe) old-ivory-colored paper.
The black “writing ink” that came with the pen worked well once I changed to one of my nibs. It worked better on the handmade paper than on regular sketch paper.
The Parker reddish ink worked very well on that sketch book paper but not so well on the handmade paper.
