Here's a job I've been putting off for a ridiculously long time. My steel pens are my everyday tools - if they're not doing a good job, then I can't either.
Over the last few months (many months!) I've ended up with a mixture of good nibs, nibs that needed a bit of TLC, and nibs that were beyond rescue.
All muddled in together, it was frustrating picking up a pen only to find that it didn't write well, and then having to change to a different nib.
Well yesterday I worked my way through them all, cleaned them, sorted them, and I now have a full set of pens ready for action.
(I should really credit BT for this work - our broadband was down all day yesterday so that huge time-thief that is the internet was unavailable to me.)
If, like me, you've found the everyday tools for your chosen activities have got in a bit of a mess, I can highly recommend a spot of time sorting them all out.
