Mondays are all about making lists, scheduling for the week, and getting stuff done. For that, you need a workhorse of a pen and ink combo. The Jinhao X750 (with additional 1.5mm Goulet nib) paired with De Atramentis Charles Dickens ink is exactly the workhorse you need. This pair is bold, consistent, and sturdy — an “I’m a bulletproof vest” kind of pair. Nothing will stop you this Monday as long as you have this week’s match in your pocket.

The grey Charles Dickens ink will keep you on the edge and motivated this week with its subtle shading and consistency as you’re crossing off the to-dos. Plus, you’ll have a ton of flexibility with the Jinhao X750 with our Goulet nibs. You can use the standard medium Jinhao nib for quick notes and fixes or add some depth and variation by swapping on the 1.5mm Goulet nib. Either way, with this duo you’ll be sharp and on point for whatever Monday throws your way.

Drew B. donated his skills this week to sketch the drawing. Alex R. provided the writing sample. Both used the Goulet 1.5 italic nib.

Have a fantastic Monday!
