This week's links are up, in addition to the second edition of the Digital Divide. Enjoy!
- Sailor Pro Gear Regency Stripe (via FP Quest). I'm a huge Sailor Pro Gear fan, and if you're into sterling silver, this pen might be the Pro Gear for you. The Imperial Black edition is more up my alley, but you can't go wrong with a Sailor.
- Noodler's Berning Red (via Inktronics). Political statements notwithstanding, I've heard lots of good things about Noodler's quick-drying inks. The newest, "Berning Red," seems to be popular. Ana over at the Well-Appointed Desk also took a look.
- Montegrappa Mule Giveaway (via Pen Habit). Matt over at the Pen Habit is giving away a Montegrappa Mule fountain pen, courtesy of Kenro Industries, the U.S. Montegrappa distributor. You can also check out Matt's review here. This is one I'd like to check out myself, because in the past I have found copper pens very, very heavy.
- Montblanc M (via ClickyPost). Mike Dudek takes a look at the Montblanc M designed by Marc Newson. This pen doesn't post, which probably rules it out for me, but again this is another one that I'd like to see in person at some point. Maybe Montblanc will have one in Atlanta?
- Brad Dowdy Hates Pencils. In case you didn't know this already.
There have been some great deals on Iroshizuku Ink available on Amazon, with bottles of popular colors selling for less than $20, sometimes with Prime Shipping included: Yama Budo ($18.99); Kon Peki ($19.99); Yu-Yake ($18.80) and more!
Pelikan is re-releasing the Blue M205 Demonstrator, and I'm not going to miss it this time.
Digital Divide, Volume 2
For those of you who subscribe, Volume 2 already has hit your inbox. For a while now, I've been toying with the idea of branching out and creating a separate website devoted to discussing the divide between the "digital" and "analog" parts of our lives, the benefits of making time for analog tools and workflows, and why people draw the line where they do. Given that I'm already pretty overloaded, I decided to start off with a monthly special edition of the existing TGS newsletter, which I may make more frequent and/or change up depending on interest and reaction. Volume 2 focuses on ways in which you can use analog tools to reclaim your attention span. For the first few issues, I will link to the newsletter here so people can make a decision on whether they'd be interested in subscribing.
