I added a few pen blogs to my
resources/links page, check them out.
Some links of interest from the past week:
Gourmet Pens reviews a second Franklin-Christoph ink, this time it’s
Dark Denim. I don’t need more ink, but I think I’ll come back from D.C. with a complete set of F-C ink.
Last week I though Visconti had the coolest pen ever. I was wrong, they
have it this week. Now I just need to win the lottery.
FPGeeks is giving away a
Kaweco 3 pen set. Ending June 30th.
Seize the Dave has a review of
J. Herbin Rouge Opera.
Rants of the Archer has a
review of the Sheaffer Taranis. I haven’t decided if I like this pen or not. The pictures look good, but there’s a lot of chrome which is usually a turn off for me. I’ll have to see one in real life.
Silent Seeing has a review of the Franklin-Christoph Model 33, one of the F-C pens not in my accumulation. (via
The Pen Addict)
From the Pen Cup has a
review of the gorgeous Bamboo Style pen from Ken Carvers.
I broke my “no pens ’til DC” resolution and added two pens to my accumulation. They arrived today, earlier than expected. So I inked them up to fill the two empty slots in
this week’s ink.
Parker 1945 Duofold Senior with a fine nib and R&K Leipziger Schwarz
Sheaffer Triumph Lifetime with xf/f nib and R&K Sepia
Inkdependence has a review of
Organic Studios Edgar Allen Poe Ink.
giving away a Pilot Prera to celebrate is 100th post. The giveaway ends June 19th. He also has a review of the Seven Seas Tomoe River Paper Pad.
From the Pen Cup has a
review of the Monteverde Invincia Deluxe Nighthawk. It’s hard to resist the pen and this review doesn’t help.
The Pen Addict has a
review of the affordable Pilot Metropolitan. He also has a long list of links for reading this weekend.
While way more than I can spend for a pen, the
Visconti Pininfarina Carbongrafite Retractable Nib Fountain Pen is one cool pen (via FPGeeks).
A video on
Lamy’s design and manufacturing process. (via FPGeeks)
The Clicky Post muses on
Doane Paper and Products.
The Goo d, The Bad, and The Rest at Inkophile.
There’s a new
Mabie Todd website.
Limited Edition Platt Rogers Spencer Commemorative Fountain Pen is a pen I couldn’t resist. Hard rubber, made by Edison Pens with a nib by Greg Minuskin. Rather than flip a coin I picked the green ripple since it will be unique in my accumulation.
A stealth pen with a
review that looks this good is hard to resist.
