This week’s Monday Matchup is bright and lively for you — hopefully it’ll help you wake up and get going for the week (you know, along with all that coffee, too). We’ve paired the compact Kaweco ICE Sport in Pink, with fine nib, with Rohrer & Klingner Fernambuk ink. We love this match because it’s a unique pick, likely to stand out and warm you up with all this cooler weather. The Kaweco ICE fits comfortably in the hand and also in your pocket, purse, or backpack. You’ll want to take it with you everywhere. With the Fernambuk ink, which has incredible flow and nice saturation, you can leave bright, vivacious notes for yourself or friends throughout the day sure to make it brighter. You can’t help but smile with how fun this pair is.

Our gifted photographer, Sarah, drew the sketch for this week’s Monday Matchup, while Alex sampled how the pair performs with a writing sample.

What pen and ink combos liven up your day? Whatever it is, ink it up! Hope you all have a dazzling Monday!
