Like most readers, you likely know “#wtf” by its more common meaning; Well That’s Fantastic! But we’re re-branding the abbreviation as Where to Focus and we’ll use it every Friday to quickly share the week’s best PenPorn produced by our in-house photo studio.
Dancer Pink is one of 8 Sailor Storia inks inspired by the circus. Storia inks are vivid, pigmented, waterproof, and mixable. Each beautifully frosted 30ml bottle is nestled in tissue paper and packaged in a circular cardboard box. Like Sailor’s other bottles, it is short and wide with a convenient filling reservoir. Dancer Pink was reviewed using a Sailor Pro Gear in Transparent Pink with medium nib, a Noodler’s Konrad with Anderson Pens broad nib, and Rhodia Blank No. 18 paper.
Chris here! As you’ve noticed, we’ve started doing thINKthursday, a weekly ink review that will continue until we run out of ink. Having worked at Anderson Pens for nearly a year, I’ve been exposed to nearly every ink we carry – over 700 – and I’m excited to share my observations, thoughts and doodles. I took inspiration from different review formats across the internet and compiled them into 8 different sections, which I explain below:
The Conklin Crescent Ambrosia is part of the Mark Twain Crescent collection, and is part of a limited edition collection numbered to 98.
What’s so special about the Ambrosia? This pen achieves new levels of sophistication because it combines a really attractive genuine celluloid with vermeil accents (gold plate over sterling silver). A unique Ambrosia celluloid was chosen for its classic vintage looks, and is semi-transparent. As such, the user can monitor remaining ink levels as he or she writes. The vermeil mid-band is engraved with Mark Twain’s distinctive signature as well as the silversmith’s hallmarks and the pen’s unique number.
