Deals and Drops: Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

If Mom digs pens, then you've got plenty to work with this week, including a Mother's Day discount code from Pen Chalet, some inventory blowout sales, and Edison Pearlettes in new materials! 

  1. Pen Chalet Clearance. Ron is blowing out a lot of his old inventory over at PenChalet. Check out this week's Pen Addict Podcast discounts for some especially crazy good deals. Personally, I went in on one of the Delta Matte Journals in ivory, which I've been eyeballing for years but never pulled the trigger. Products on sale also include the Parker Sonnet "Great Expectations" series. Use the code MOTHER for an additional 10% off this weekend! 
  2. New Pens in Stock at Chatterley Luxuries. Bryant Greer just posted a ton of new pens to his website, including new stock from Danitrio, Aurora, Visconti, etc. His specials and closeouts are exceptional. 
  3. Goldspot Clearance. Goldspot also has some good stuff in their clearance section this week, including the Waterman Ombres et Lumieres Expert fountain pen, and the Parker Urban Matte Black Rollerball
  4. Retro 51 Artist Series (via Vanness Pens). There are still some Bioworkz Artist Series pen sets left (with matching numbers), and you can also still buy the 2016 & 2017 Combined Full Set, which includes both the Joey Feldman pens from 2016 and the current Bioworks pens. 
  5. New Pelikan Limited Editions (via Appelboom). Appelboom has some great pricing on the to-be-released M800 Renaissance Brown fountain pen, as well as the M101N Bright Red.  Plus save 10% off your Appelboom Order with the Coupon Code FRIEND (excludes Montblanc). 
  6. New Edison Pearlette Production Line Pens (via Anderson Pens). Edison Pens has updated its Production Line (i.e., non-custom) Pearlettes, which is probably my personal favorite of the various "Production" models. The new colors are Azure Skies, Canyon Trial, and Sonoran Sunset. Anderson Pens also has listed a Pearlette in Blue Beige Flecked Acrylic from Lisa's collection, which is gorgeous and shouldn't last long. 
  7. Tom Barrington Leather Goods (via Amazon). It looks like Tom Barrington has introduced some new products, including not only their excellent looking pen sleeves but some minimal leather wallets in both bridle leather and ostrich
  8. Baron Fig Backpack, Messenger, and Tote (via Kickstarter). Check out Baron Fig's latest Kickstarter project. I went with the Tote, since I've been looking for a good tote bag for a long time. (My initial post here.)
  9. Schneider Topball 850 Rollerball Refill (via Amazon). So I splurged for my birthday this month and bought myself one of the Field Notes "Brands Hall" rollerball pens, and was pleasantly surprised with the refill. I grabbed a box of them and am looking forward to seeing what pens they fit into. Supposedly they are "Pilot G2 compatible."  
  10. Field Notes Everyday Inspiration (via Field Notes). Field Notes' new collaboration with Australian Leather goods manufacturer Bellroy is gorgeous, and I'm digging the gray leather with orange interior. If you're interested in a Bellroy notebook cover with another color scheme, head over to Huckberry, which has other versions in stock.
  11. Musubi Handmade Journals (via Musubi). Thanks to Daryl for sending me one of the gorgeous clothbound Musubi handmade journals. I have the "Seigaiha" in red and its beautiful. Look for a full review later. 
  12. Elegant Utility Etsy Store (via Etsy). Michael at Elegant Utility has been introducing some new products, including the Excalibur Big Nut, which serves as a holder for their Big Pal brass Bic pen holder. I've reviewed some of Michael's products before, and they're of excellent quality.
  13. Sailor Imperial Black Multipen (via Amazon). Sailor has never sold the Imperial Black Multipen outside of Japan, to my knowledge, which is a shame. It's a great pen, and you can check out my review here.
  14. Sailor Imperial Black Ballpoint (via Amazon). At some point I'll probably pick the ballpoint up as well.
  15. Pilot Capless "Deep Yellow" with Alloy Nib (via Amazon). Pilot sells an "alloy" (i.e., stainless steel) nibbed version of the Capless / Vanishing Point in Japan, and it's the only way you can still get the Deep Yellow/Mustard color.  
  16. Eureka Pen (via Kickstarter). Kudos to Harry Marks for picking up on this. I have no idea who the manufacturer is or whether the project is legit, but the video alone is worth a watch. That said, $70 is steep for a pen with an IPG nib, and it looks like they had fulfillment problems with their last project, the "Zen Egg.
