Fountain Pen Quest Sunday Links – August 29, 2021

Still on the summer schedule, so today is a links-only post. Since next weekend is the unofficial end of summer here in the U.S., the normal schedule will be returning. Unless I decide to take next weekend off, and just do a holiday link post.

My Pen Sale is still ongoing. I adjusted some pen prices, some down, one up. I’ll be shopping the pens in other venues.

San Francisco Pen Show: Day 1 Recap — The Gentleman Stationer


The Stockholm Telephone Tower with approximately 5,500 telephone lines, 1890 – Rare Historical Photos // From the Security Now podcast, where they often feature a picture of a rats nest of a wiring closet. Hard to believe this existed, and worked.

Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – August 1, 2021

It’s still summer, so this week is a link only post.

Pen Shows

Pen shows are back. Since I like reading about them, they get an exemption from the 1 link per site rule.

The Washington DC Pen Show is coming next weekend.

More Pen, Ink & Paper Links

I limit myself to one link per site each week, so be sure to check other recent posts on these sites.

Trash Printmaking More Coffee Bag Process | Comfortable Shoes Studio // While I don’t think I would ever do this, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this whole series.

Fun With Ballpoints – Left Hook Pens // My shame is I bought two ballpoints last week.

Putting Japanese F nibs in the driver’s seat — mnmlscholar // The smudged Apache Sunset reminds me of the reason I stopped using that ink, despite loving the color. It was a magnet for smudges. Glad to see it’s not just me.

Crónicas Estilográficas: From Platinum to Lanbitou // This can’t be good for fountain pen innovation.

How Do You Use Your Pens? – Goodwriterspens’s Blog // The last sentence sums it up nicely.

Mini Collections, Part IV: All the PURPLE Inks — The Gentleman Stationer // Purples are also my favorite fun ink. Sometimes in a thin nib for annotation, but often with my Sailor zoom nib.

Shibui Kibo Urushi Enamelled Copper Pen | dapprman // An interesting pen made with a less common (but faster) Urushi technique.

Notebook Review: Profolio Oasis Notebook – The Well-Appointed Desk // I’ve been using the Profolio Oasis Light notebooks and I’m a fan. Good paper, good price.

On My Desk – July 2021 | An Inkophile’s Blog // Certainly not a nib selection I’d use, but I do like the pen and ink.
