As I mentioned yesterday, I'm on vacation this week, but I figured I'd take a few minutes before getting back on the road to do a little link surfing and get my weekly links out. Enjoy!
- Edison Menlo with Draw Filler (via MyCoffeePot). Gerald reviews the new Edison Menlo Draw Filler, and apparently yes, you can have the pump filler in your Menlo replaced with the newest mechanism from Edison.
- Wahl-Eversharp Decoband (via Hand Over That Pen). Wow, that's a big pen. Looks like another great modern flex nib offering, that seems to offer much better line variation than most "modern" flex nibs.
- Pilot Custom 823 (via The Pencilcase Blog). I had no idea that Pilot didn't sell the Custom 823 in Europe. It's a great pen, and I especially like the "smoke" demonstrator.
- Schon DSGN Classic Pen (via Nib and Ink). I've heard good things, and I need to get my hands on one of these, especially with a new adapter for D1 refills.
- An Organizing System of Index Cards (via Wonder Pens). I love index cards, but I've never formally incorporated them into any sort of organizing system. Some great ideas from Liz!
- Montblanc Unicef Turquoise (via Well-Appointed Desk). I have some of this ink for review, and it's a gorgeous turquoise.
- YStudio The Weight of Words Review (via Gourmet Pens). These pens are crazy cool, especially the "brassing" pen.
- Robert Oster Fire & Ice Ink Review (via My Pen Needs Ink). Bob reviews one of my favorite inks that's been released in the past two years.
- Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown Special Edition (via TooManyInks). There goes some more of the D.C. Pen Show fund. This pen is gorgeous. I love the brown "cracked ice" look.
- Sailor 1911 Large Ballpoint Review (via Ed Jelley). I always recommend Sailor ballpoints, and I love their refills.
