The Namiki Nippon Art line is true to its name – each piece is a work of art. Members of the Kokkokai Artisan Group use the Hira Maki-e technique to create each piece. Available in several versions, today’s #wtf spotlight shines on the Chinese Phoenix. Enjoy!
Montblanc Blue Hour fountain pen ink has been available for a while now, but it won’t be around forever so we wanted to give it a closer look while you can still get your hands on some. Blue Hour refers to the time of day when the sun is below the horizon line, which causes the sky to become a rich blue. The ink comes in Montblanc’s beautiful square 30ml bottle, with a geometric pattern on the outside cardboard box. This review was done with a Monteverde Invincia Fine nib, Lamy AL-Star Broad nib and on Rhodia no.18 blank paper.
Is a new pen sweeter than your favorite scoop of ice cream? We think so – and we’re serving up pens and stationery that even a triple scoop can’t beat. These beauties won’t melt, but you might be getting some ink on your hands.
There has been a constant supply of new products coming into the store this summer, which is keeping us busy and continually drooling over one pen or another. This week we have hot deals on the Conklin Conklinetta Sr. and Conklin Sleeve Fillers from the Heritage Collection, and the new Cross Peerless Special Edition Cities have arrived as well.
Brian gives us a look at the Pilot Custom 912 Waverly fountain pen, new to the US line up in the summer of 2016!
The Pilot Custom 912 fountain pen has an elegant, classy design, and the Waverly nib is very enjoyable to use! This is a full size, polished black resin pen with rhodium trim. You have likely seen this model before as it is available with several other nib options. This particular pen features a Pilot #10 Waverly nib – it is a 14-karat gold nib with rhodium-plating. The nib matches the trim perfectly, and it is a unique nib at that.
This week, #wtf takes us to the Conklin Pen Company’s updated version of the timeless Duragraph. Available in Amber, Cracked Ice, Forest Green, and Ice Blue, in both fountain pen and ballpoint, this classic pen is as beautiful as it is affordable.
