  1. Hello everybody Today I would like to start a conversation about EDC systems and which pens you carry everyday. I'll start: I have two pen pouches, one with 3 slots and one with 4 slots. Both of them are in brown leather. In the pouch with 3 slots (which has my last name engraved in the leather) I have the pens which have the 3 'basic colours'/most frequent used colours of ink: - Red: For the red ink I use Pelikan Edelstein Ruby, in my Parker Sonnet in red lacquer. Fine nib. Lovely pen but rigid nib, in the future I'd like to upgrade this pen to a burgundy sailor pro gear. - Green: The
  2. Hey guys! During my recent travels to Japan, i found a unique wooden fountain pen case from Storio. I'd never heard of the brand before but the moment i saw the case i fell in love with the way it looked and felt, so I just had to get one! I thought I'd just shed some light on this relatively unknown brand, as i think this case is beautiful and worth every penny. It looks professional and sleek/ stealthy, yet is interesting enough to get anyone who lays eyes on it to start a conversation about it! If you guys are interested, i made a video review about it! Theres also a link to where to get
  3. DiLoro Italy double pen cases in full-grain nappa leather discounted to A$17 (approximately, but fluctuates due exchange rates) each, for five out of ten available colours, on Amazon.com.au. These are sold and shipped by Amazon US, and if you have Amazon Prime membership, buying three of these on a single order would put it just past the A$49 threshold amount for free shipping to Australia. (Of course, alternatively you could just buy one or two, and make up the A$49 minimum with other Prime-eligible international product not limited to what is sold by Amazon US.) I bought ten of these pen
  4. Staedtler's beautiful Premium cities fountain pens are collapsing on Amazon's Global UK store. Most of them are very low stock. Amazon's pricing algorithm does some very odd things in such instances. These are $250 MSRP (And quite a few are priced accordingly) but some versions are selling for under $40. Even the ones that are priced higher are becoming cheaper day-by-day. The FOMO is extreme, but I already have a bunch of them. That does not mean others should miss out: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Staedtler+urbes&i=merchant-items&me=AP3VA1GJZM3EQ&qid=1570306990&ref=sr_pg_1
  5. A review of the 6-Pen Case from Visconti. Have also replicated the content with some more pictures in the blog. Happy reading ! Below is a link to the same: Visconti Dreamtouch 6-Pen Case I was looking for a quality pen-case for quite sometime to serve as a handy storage of my fountain pens, outside their hefty boxes. Existence of nice fountain pens, necessitates invention of great fountain pen cases. I do use a Pelikan 3-pen case to carry my daily fountain pens, but I required something more secure which can double up as a travel companion, if I ever intend to carry more than three pens a
  6. I'm looking for a desk pad or blotter, preferably leather, that will protect a very large, old wooden desk that's been in the family for a while. Does anyone have any recommendations? Of course, fountain pen friendliness is essential. thanks! C
  7. Wondering if anyone has any experience with the Maruman x Somes A4 leather notepad holder (Amazon link)? I'm wondering whether it is worth the price (it can be found on ebay as cheap as $275).
  8. Hi Everyone, My problem is that I prefer hardcover journals for daily writing, but move around a lot so they are too heavy and impractical for my kind of lifestyle. Therefore, I'm thinking about switching to something more portable like Midori A5 journals. The issue is that I don't like writing on floppy surfaces and often need the hardcover to act as a writing surface when I'm out and about. Does such a thing exist as a leather notebook cover that is stiff enough or has hard enough surfaces to make a softcover journal feel like a hardback? Thanks for any suggestions!
  9. Hi Everyone, I stumbled upon this and thought I'd share: The Mosaic Italian Napa 24-pen case retails for $145, but is currently only $59.95. https://www.airlineintl.com/product/mosaic-italian-napa-24-pen-portfolio There is even free name engraving. Downside is it's only available in black.
  10. Hey everyone! I've been checking the F-C website every once-in-a-while to see if the Model 40 Panther has come into stock yet. No luck on that yet. However, it seems that F-C has released a new color, orange, of their pocket sized notebook in a limited production run. Only 75 pieces have been made so if you're interested give it a look! http://www.franklin-christoph.com/the-stock-room.html It seems that the price is the same as the regular pocket sized leather notebooks. Notebook alone is $25.00, $31.25 with shipping in the US. Orders over $50 get free shipping so if you want to s
  11. My first try at a notebook cover (I'm more used to bigger pieces, or knife sheaths). I have done a number of errors, and the leather I used to make the border was not thin enough, but still, I'm quite happy with it ! You can see more pictures in this gallery. I've added a steel bar in the discs to rigidify the notebook's spine, and replaced the paper by Clairefontaine's Clairing.
  12. If anyone needs a rather smart journal Asda is well worth checking out. They have a range upto A4 size either plain or ruled. Purchased this stitch bound leather cover journal today from Asda (UK supermarket) It is between A5 and A4. Fountain pen tests show no bleed through or feathering. Unknown number of ruled white pages make up around 22mm thickness plus covers. Has a ribbon. Best part is the price £4 pounds Stirling
  13. Hi to all, I'm an artisan specialised in hand-crafted watches and leather accessories from Barcelona and I'l like to introduce my new series of Traveler Fountain Pen Pouches. As a keen traveller I've always carried in my bag the travel journal along a bottle of Iroshizuku ink and a Lamy. For a while I just had both the pen and the ink inside a plastic, zip bag but started to wonder how could I keep my pen in a more stylish way, specially if I took with me not the Safari but the M1000 or the Falcon... So after few iterations and thousands of km travelled I'm really happy with the result: The
  14. Hey all, we all love fountain pens and we all want to write with them. So at one point we need to find ourselves some nice paper. In my case I also wanted a nice notebook which contains the paper. Eventually I discovered the Midori Notebooks and loved them. Simple design but a very thought through, cool looking little system. The problem that I had was the price. I just did not want to (and shouldn't at the time) spend 50$ for a notebook. So I had the idea to google a little bit and see, if there were people who made their own versions of that Traveler's Notebook. And I was lucky. I found
  15. Greetings FPN Members! I am in the market for a leather cover for my Taroko Enigma A5 notebook (148mm x 210mm x 18mm). After reading the various reviews on FPN and NanamiPaper.com, I am eager to invest in a GFeller kip leather cover. Would anyone have experience with / knowledge of the Gfeller Kip Hobonichi Cousin A5 cover (148mm x 210mm x 17mm) fitting the Taroko Enigma notebooks? I have scoured the Internet but have been unable to find conclusive evidence of the same. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! delhirox
  16. Hey there! School is approaching quickly, and with it the need for new supplies! I (think/hope I) have my pens covered, with my soon to arrive Pilot VP (practicality at its finest), but I'm still in dire need of some paper to write on. Although the simplest option is to just have a separate notebook for each subject, I'm worried about the practicality of toting around 6 near-identical notebooks, and attempting to differentiate between them. For this reason, I'm craving something that can hold all of my notebooks, or fountain-pen friendly paper, in one convenient school-friendly booklet-esque
  17. I like carrying 2-3 pens around with me in my pocket but I always limit it to cheaper pens like the metropolitan or Jinhaos because I'm afraid to damage any of my more expensive pens. However, I would love to actually be able to use my Pilot custom heritage 91, and vanishing point, etc in classes to take notes considering I bought the things to actually use. I have the standard single pen slips that I will keep pens in but I'm afraid that sitting down and moving around etc that the pen being in my pocket might snap in two or be damaged since the pen slip doesn't really offer any rigidity, it j

    Best Pen Case?

    Hi! I'm starting to build my collection, but want to take multiple pens out with me, how ever, as I am a student, I don't want to be lugging around a large case to keep my pens safe. So what would you guys suggest, I'm after a small(ish) case, which can hold 3 pens which will protect them from becoming scratched or crushed within my bag. Hopefully something like this exists. If not, anything similar will help. And all answers appreciated. Many thanks Tom
  19. Randomly crusing for notebooks and office supplies this morning on amazon and I stumbled across this thing: a 6-ring loose leaf binder mechanism bolted into the familiar Traveler's Notebook-style leather exterior. If you're a Franklin, Dayrunner, or Filofax fanatic, this might be a nice way to move into the TN universe. About US$30.00. Presented for your information only, I have no experience with either the product or the seller. https://www.amazon.com/b-still-Genuine-Notebook-Refillable-Handmade/dp/B01BMZZW36/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488042685&sr=8-1&keywords=b.still+leather

    Montblanc Leather Pouch Question

    Hi, I'm getting a Montblanc Meisterstück Classique pen in either gold or platinum (can't decide!) and would be grateful for any advice regarding my concerns with Montblanc's leather pouches. I already have a Montblanc Meisterstück 1 pen leather pouch but having read through some threads on this site I'm concerned about the risk of scratching the pen (especially as the 'precious resin' appears to be vulnerable to surface marks) and possible long-term corrosion to the gold plated parts such as the clip caused by the chrome tanned leather. I checked Montblanc's website which does not disclose

  22. American West lovers, these pieces have been made just for you! Visconti launches a new Limited Edition bringing the Wild West back. The writing instruments' ivory coloured barrel feature a scrimshaw engraved cowboy. Trims in antique sterling silver are adorned with six shooters and the clip displays Visconti's name in the style of an old saloon sign. The cap is covered in hand-crafted leather giving the finishing touch to these pens full of history and dreams! Both Limited Edition bring a special packaging in hand-crafted leather and walnut. Available in fountain pen or rollerball the e
  23. At the beginning of December, the folks at Fountain Pen Revolution (FPR - http://www.fountainpenrevolution.com) unveiled their new roll-up pen pouch - with a normal retail price of US$29 (plus $3 flat-rate postage), they were offering an introductory price of $19. The offer was too good to pass up - so I placed an order, pretty well straight away. I was away on a family holiday at the time - and was pleased to find the package waiting for me on my return. (Well, waiting at the post office, anyway!) The pouch is made pretty well entirely of leather - a thick, durable, lighter-brown leathe
  24. Hello! My brother has recently gotten me interested in fountain pens after getting me a TWSBI. I do some leatherwork as a hobby so naturally the two will be going together . Just wanted to share some things I've made in the past. I've posted this on the FB group but I'll be posting here as well. New projects will be added as they are completed! http://i.imgur.com/hkHtuzd.jpg http://i.imgur.com/CeQCWBZ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/qnTF2ui.jpg http://i.imgur.com/z58Mudc.jpg http://i.imgur.com/EQI206f.jpg http://i.imgur.com/8MeHIgg.jpg
  25. I've been a happy repeat customer of Fountain Pen Revolution for a couple of years now, and wanted to post a quick 'first-look' review of their latest new release: a 2-pen case made of leather. These are currently for sale on their website (www.fountainpenrevolution) for US$24 plus postage. In honor of the launch, they're including a FPR 'Indus' fountain pen, valued at US$17, for free - in a randomly-selected colour and nib size. I purchased two - one to keep, and one to give away. Onto the case itself, though - which conforms to a fairly standard design. The front of the pouch is made o
