  1. Hello ! We would like to share a review by David Parker on our Venvstas Italy 2020 Magna, the pen in the review is the version with the Titanium nib, which is the standard version, there's also a 14k version available. Everything you need to know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNoYZFxueWM&t=17s For any questions, just reply. I'm here to answer! V
  2. Recently went to Brussels on a family trip and wanted to explore pen shops. Didn't have time to search very far but found a lovely little shop near the old centre called Le Typographe. This is their second shop in Brussels and has only been open a 3-4 months according to the salesperson. They also have a workshop in Brussels and the website suggests another shop in Paris. Small shop, open afternoons only (like many Brussels shops) with mainly notebooks and cards, all produced by themselves. Not the cheapest but some gorgeous things and the paper I bought was fountain pen friendly. They al
  3. On July 13th 2019, the Paris Pen Meet welcomes Ryan Krusac Studio's pens at Thé-ritoires in Paris.

    The D'art Second Series

    The first series sold out, but the new series is on the way. The New series features a re-designed section, a slimmer body while keeping the same profile and unique look of this very unique design. Take a look! Your feedback was very much taken into account ! https://www.venvstas.com/dart
  5. We would like to present to you a new model that will be available SOON. The all new Venvstas D'art. We have been looking on this and other forums of the like, blogs, u-tube channels, and in a plethora of similar branches, and its remarkable how much chinese clones seem to gain terrain offering decent pens for the money and to some extend not only “inspired by” but falsifications of a very known german pen (in the picture below). Why somebody as a maker would like to make a falsification? Anyway. We have been looking with attention on how other metal pens inspired by, that are looking li

    Vacumatic Revisited

    This is a prototype at the moment for a pen that will be made in very small quantities. 10 (ten) The pen is all hand made, it was born out of an experiment, making a pen with an overlay and ink window, personally I like the syringe type, but in this case, an overlay made more clear the need for a longer body and a small blind cap and a big ink reservoir, therefore I thought why not to make a vacumatic type of pen, but, we do not have diaphragms, and they complicate the construction of the pen, the solution was to replace what in a parker would be a latex diaphragm by the same type of pistons w
  7. I have placed a few pics that are resuming the year at https://www.venvstas.com/
  8. Well, the original design as I got tons of mails for this pen, its available finally, although its a very difficult pen to do so it takes time. The system has been tested over 6 months now, the first VAC are shipping by the end of novemeber (the carbon fiber version) A video will be posted soon with the pen in action. A really different pen, even for our standards. https://www.venvstas.com/shamash enjoy.

    Carbon T For Free

    We will start to give a pen out periodically, and we will start with the Carbon T this 6 OCTOBER! All you have to do is to like us on Facebook or suscribe and we will held a live event in October 6 to give the pen away! This is the luxury version of our best seller the Carbon T. You can check reviews of the carbon T here in English: and here in Japanese: We will also be given along a notebook courtesy of OFF-Lines
  10. As I posted somewhere in FB, we have three pens until the end of the year to go out. The first one is this pen, I get questions like what's your everyday pen? So I decided to make a copy of my everyday pen. The pen is just a Carbon T (my favorite design) with glossy black body and gold hardware. I like the 18k nibs in B, so I made that. It has also a clip. Thing I don't use, but it has one. Its was prototype I just kept for my everyday use, and I think you might enjoy. (you can have it in EF/F/M too of course) Custom grinding, no. The gold is not for making a more expensive pen, its just th
  11. We are happy to announce that we won a competition to be part of the Paris design week, we will be there with our own space, if you don't know, this is one of the most important design events worldwide. As a designer this is quite a very important thing, plus, seems the pens are getting some attention.. To celebrate I've made a second prototype of the "vacumatic" type, (that uses a piston and a spring instead of the rubber diaphragm) this one won't be a limited run, probably will stay for a while, the other pen is on hold, as this one is getting my attention now for some reasons. Figures
  12. This one was announced long ago, and finally we decided to put it out. Its an interesting pen with a nice blend of materials, the cartridge version may not be ever out, but at least this one (the piston version) is. Its a rather big pen, still streamlined with a body in a mixture of carbon fiber and steel 10 to 11mm thick and 2.0ml of ink capacity. No clip, cap do not post. Its a desk pen. Although its a pen I personally use a lot and its my everyday carry pen, because its just a tank, very tough, loads lots of ink, and as being a pen designer makes you be with lots of pens, so at the end you

  16. Hi, Would anybody be interested in a weekend pen meet in Paris to talk inks and pens? If so, let me know Could be fun!
  17. Dear fountain pen people. One of our best known models have been re-designed and we are going to give away 2 different pens for review and testing purposes before making them available. You can pick the nib you want, and you will be able to keep the pen afterwards, current reviews here or online are from very early models or from stuff that has been changed, or discontinued, or both, plus there is almost no information on the pens. The only condition is that you did already at least 3 reviews on the FPN, that you follow the FPN guide for reviewing, and having a blog or a U-tube channel is
  18. Thoughts On The Carbon V, A Kickstarter Insight. Usually Im posting here pictures of pens, using this platform to make users, clients whoever to notice what Im doing. I have written a lot on who am I and what do I do by the time of the kickstarter campaign, which to date has been a commercial failure (although a successful campaign) and a financial problem for me. Kickstarter is full of things, good things, bad things, but they all have something in common, attractive prices sometimes and originality. Without this there's no kickstarter. What's the point? Kickstarter is to start somethin

    From Paris

    Hi everybody, I'm writing here because I have no idea where I should write. But I think those from the industry should write somewhere to make our products visible, specially things like what I have today. I think they fit the spirit of the pen collector and/or pen aficionado. One is called the Magna, a 3.2ml oversize pen. Our first oversize pen. Still a fair slim pen. The second is called the "Avance", advance in English, its I think the only pen ever that can be said it's 100% carbon fiber. another big pen, bur still streamlined. I have many designs in carbon, but you always need som
  21. hello there!!!!!!!!!! I'm starting this tread, I'm new to the site and the fact I'm new to the site is because being a long time collector of Parker pens, and pens in general, fountain pens, I got a present from a friend. I'm american and I live in france, (because of my wife basically), and I got for my birthday a new pen I haven't seen before, I had no idea: After going here and there in internet (including this blog) I found out that apart from a twitter and a web site, there is no information on 'em. I had to ask my friend where did he bought it, and he did not wanted to say, as I could

    Montblanc Sample Sale In Paris?

    Hi all, I was living in France two years ago and signed up for a sample sales organized by a company called Arlettie to able enjoy some Parisian shopping while on a student budget. Some sales were good and some were terrible. I moved to Boston a year and a half ago but stayed on the mailing list and it looks like they have a Montblanc sale tomorrow and Saturday. I was surprised to see MB because they mainly work with clothing and a few jewelry brands, so I have no idea if they will even have pens, but I'm curious. I thought I would share the invite for anyone living in Paris and also ask i
  24. Joseph Gibert is not just a book and stationary store in Paris. Once it made fountain pens with its name. The following is an advertisement from a "cahier" purchased in Paris in 1936 by José Gaos, disciple of Ortega y Gasset, prolific translator of German philosophy into Spanish, a philosopher himself and renowned teacher of philosophy, exiled in Mexico in 1938. In 1936-1937 he was commissioned to Paris and other countries by the government of the Spanish Republic during the Civil War. Does anyone has seen, or possess, one of these interesting Joseph Gibert stylos? Something to say about the
  25. If you happen to be in Paris, visit Mora Stylos. Or go especially to paris just for that. There is an expo of many Nakayas that you can see, feel, smell and try. I received a Dorsal Fin II in ishime kanshitsu akatamenuri with a medium flexible elastic nib in ruthenium from my wife . It is very rare to have the privilege to take so many different Nakaya models in hands in Europe. And to be able to buy them without having to wait for many months. Until Saturday there is also one of Nakayas master to make adjustments. Then it is all over. It's a pity that he wasn't there when I passed by tw
