  1. I find myself gearing up to particiapte in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November 2017. I'm currently reading No Plot? No Problem and considering logistics. Considering the aim is to produce a 1st draft, I'm considering doing this longhand - probably in pencil and maybe FP. The second draft can be done on a PC Anyone else thinking of participating, or have any thoughts or recommendations? We could use this thread as a support group - or to brag.
  2. Hi there. I`ve been collecting and restoring pens for some 40 years but have become more and more disheartened by spare parts being increasingly difficult to find. It was easy in the earlier years. Nowadays, when I ask for something as simple as a Parker 45 shell, all I hear is, "Send us your pen". People who would once sell spares, now want to repair the pen for you; understandable in some ways, as for many of such people, it is their livelihood. Bad news for DIY collectors though. More recently made pens are by far the worst for spares availability; Waterman France being the biggest culprit,
  3. Graf Von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2017 (Vikings) PVD Edition The version with a tough anthracite-coloured PVD coating has a particularly masculine appeal. Matt-grey smoked oak – the preferred wood for building the Viking ships – stands in exciting contrast to the gleaming metal parts of fountain pen and roller-ball pen, which change their appearance with every movement. A grey shimmering smoky quartz adorns the cap of all writing implements of this edition. Each of these writing implements is presented in a brightly polished black wooden case. A certificate bearing the s
  4. Ink View: Ivy 108 - Papier Plume’s Chicago Pen Show Exclusive! I first came to know about this and the Lake Michigan Summer a couple of weeks ago while conversing with Papier Plume on new upcoming inks. At that point the inks weer already created and I was just at the tail end of it. I was lucky enough to receive a small sample of each. As teh main batch hadn't been done yet, I got what was left from what was sent to other reviewers. Still I was happy to tryout these inks, specially since I dont have an Ink Hookup at the Chicago Show to get me some these ink bottles. Still! Many thanks to P

  6. Ink View: Papier Plume’s Red Beans and Rice - "Now serving for your fountain pen taste buds". Some time back I had the chance of going to New Orleans and in my exploration of the city ( and obvious google search for stationery stores), I stumbled upon Papier Plume, and what transpired out of that moment was the chance to try out one of the then upcoming inks. I had been very fortunate that they have been kind enough to send me samples of the new releases after that and helped me try and hone this world of ink (re)view which can be as wide and large as you want to take it. NOLA is famous i
  7. The Lamy Safari is 17 grams and 37 years of design excellence that’s been the beginner’s fountain pen of choice for almost all those years. Its design is one of the most strikingly simple yet modern in the pen world, yet it has proven to be as timeless as any of the classics. The Al-Star is its big brother. Made from aluminum instead of ABS plastic, the Al-Star weighs more and feels more solid in the hand, but is nearly identical to the Safari in every other way. They share the same nib, design, and internal functions. The Al-Star is a way to own the classic yet modern design in a sturdie
  8. Hi, I got the ok to note that Papier Plume will be releasing a new ink for the the Miami Pen Show on July 14th. the new Ink is called "Red Beans and Rice" ​here is a picture of the bottles This would not be a limited ink as they plan to make a large batch of it, BUT they did said that when it's gone, it'll be gone for a while. I'll post a splash of the ink later tonight and do plan to post a review of this ink later this week!. Hope this will be of interest Here are some samples, first glance , good saturation, good texture, mild shading Col-o-ring http://i.imgur.com/iX
  9. The 2017 Colors have just been leaked on Amazon.co.jp and fontoplumo. The Safari is a dark teal with black accents (name translates to petrol), and the Al-Star is a light blue named "Pacifica".

  10. Graf Von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2017 Admired as daring masters of wind and wave, feared as ruthless invaders and valued as merchants, the Vikings set up a trading network that span across continents. The revolutionary construction of the Viking longboats, the mystic force of the runes and the curly birch as one of the characteristic trees of the Nordic world inspired us in designing the Pen of the Year 2017. Both editions come with an 18-carat gold nib that is run in by hand. An end-cap protects the rotary knob of the plunger mechanism of the plunger-type fountain pen. rchants, the Vi
  11. OK - I got tired of waiting for someone else to start the thread - so I figured I'd do it myself. Last year the show fell on on the only weekend that we had significant snowfall - so I missed the show for the first time in many years. Who's going to the http://philadelphiapenshow.com/ and what's on your list? I haven't thought through my list yet - other than the fact that R&K Blue Mare will probably be on it. I also will definitely being looking at http://www.franklin-christoph.com/ and http://stores.rkspens.com/. I think I also need a Lamy Safari - because I think all FP fans shoul
