- The Hobonichi Techo as a Bullet Journal (via the Finer Point). Jenny walks through how she uses her Hobonichi Techo Avec as a Bullet Journal, and how it compares to the more popular Leuchtturm 1917, often the preferred choice for bullet journaling.
- Hippo Noto Kickstarter Notebook (via Squishyink). The creators of the blog Squishy-Ink has launched the Hippo Noto Tomoe River Paper Notebook, featuring an enormous 500 pages of cream-colored Tomoe River Paper, available in dot-grid, blank, or ruled options. There's even a limited-edition Robert Oster Ink (Hippo Purple) available in some pledge options.
- J.B.'s Perfect Pen Flush (via The Pen Addict). I love J.B.'s pen flush, and Brad's review is a good reminder to order some more. I've been out for way too long.
- Moo Hardcover Notebooks Available in New Colors (via Office Supply Geek). A while back I wrote about the Moo Hardcover Notebook, which is one of my favorite new notebook designs to come out in the past year. Guess what? Now they're available in new colors! Thanks to Brian for the head's up.
- Pencil for Long-Term Writing, Part 3: Paper (via Pencil Revolution). Johnny keeps it coming with the third part in his series on pencils for long-term writing, this time looking at paper options.
- Pilot Custom Heritage 92 (via Gourmet Pens). Azizah reviews the Pilot Custom Heritage 92 Clear Demonstrator in Broad. These pens from Pilot are some of the best around, IMHO, though I do tend to prefer the color demonstrator models that are available outside the U.S. I also agree that Pilot's pricing system is a bit wonky, leaving the U.S. price for this pen slightly outside the reasonable range.
- Stationery Shopping in Tokyo: Kakimori (via Three Staples). I love reading profiles about stationery shopping in Japan, especially when it involves stores that offer both custom notebook-making and ink-mixing.
- Review: Kaweco Sport (AL & Skyline) (via Hand Over That Pen). The trio from Hand Over That Pen takes on the Kaweco Sport, both the AL & Skyline models.
- Namisu Nova Brass Fountain Pen Review (via The Pencilcase Blog). Dries takes a look at the latest entry into the Namisu Nova lineup. Brass pens are hit or miss for me, as many models are simply too heavy.
- Pelikan M101N Bright Red Special Edition (via TooManyInks). I can't wait to see this pen in person, and it (along with the other entries in the M101N line) have made its way onto my "want" list.

Pens For Sale
There are still a couple pens, a few bottles of ink, and now some notebooks available in my semi-annual housecleaning sale. I'm going to leave the "Sale" page up for another week or so, and then likely will withdraw it for a while. Make me an offer on anything remaining, I'll be flexible.
In Case You Missed It …
This week on the blog I offered my thoughts on some newly announced Baron Fig products: Confidant notebooks in two new sizes, pocket and plus, as well as the limited edition "Snakes and Ladders" Archer pencils. I also reviewed two different models of the Fisher Space Pen, an everyday carry pen that I've been using a lot lately. If you haven't checked out this week's Deals and Drops, there's still lots of good stuff available, including new Tomoe River Paper options.
Happy Sunday, and as always, thanks for reading!
