Yep. Temporarily disabeled it and got some items.


Apparently the whole website is built in a way that adblock+ will totally block it.

If I were Pierre I would have a good talk with his hosting or software company.





I did have a talk with Squarespace, and they said this sounds like a browser/browser extension issue. 


Anyone having issues accessing the site, please take a screenshot–

I've had one of these pens for about 6 weeks. It is an amazing pen.


I haven't had any issues with it at all and it is easy to handle -- now getting your calligraphy to look good, that's another matter. But this pen is perfect for practicing which makes things perfect if you believe the what the old saying says.


With a shading ink, the results are absolutely stunning.

Love me my Edison and Newton pens and I share some Visconti, Omas, and Nakaya love, too. Oh, and a certain Waterman Music nib I might just have.
