#wtf Platinum – 3776 Jupiter

Where to Focus
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.

This week, we found ourselves most smitten by the overly-lengthily named – but very beautiful – Platinum 3776 Century Jupiter Red Ochre Ebonite. We hope you find it drool-worthy as well.

thINKthursday – Sailor Storia Dancer Pink Ink Review

thINKthursday – Sailor Storia Dancer Pink

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.

I took inspiration from different review formats across the internet and compiled them into 8 different sections, which I explain below:

Conklin Crescent Ambrosia Limited Edition

Brian takes a look at the Conklin Crescent Ambrosia limited edition fountain pen!

Conklin Crescent Ambrosia Limited Edition Fountain Pen

The Conklin Crescent Ambrosia is part of the Mark Twain Crescent collection, and is part of a limited edition collection numbered to 98.

Conklin Crescent Ambrosia

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.
