It looks like I’ll be able to compile the weekly links on a regular basis, so I’m back to notes & links.
In good news, my Nock Co. cases arrived. Boy, I have a lot of cases. The quality is great making them a great value. They have almost all (maybe all by now) their Kickstarter cases shipped so I imagine their store will be opening soon.
I did attend the Long Island Pen Show but it ended up be a quick visit in the afternoon and I left without adding anything to my accumulation. That wasn’t the fault of the show, in fact exactly the opposite. A lot to choose from and too little time to decide. For a nice overview of the show read Ed Jelley’s LI Pen Show recap. Or listen to him talk about it on the Pen Addict Podcast.
My inked pens haven’t changed much. I wrote both the Pelikan Lizard and Esterbrook dry and I’ve yet to replace either of them, so I’m down to eight inked pens. Well, nine actually, with the ninth being a new one I’m using as I write a review of it.
And now for the links…
Zeller Writing Company has a new Kickstarter up for some notebooks, called Furrow Books. There’s just over a month left in the campaign. The creator’s comments include reports of bleed through so they may not be best for wetter fountain pens. Still, they seem worth a look.
