Deals and Drops: More Montegrappa and a New Platinum 3776

I'm having a hard time saving my pennies for this year's D.C. Pen Show, because I'm constantly tempted by all the promotions and price reductions going on right now, as well as all they new limited products being released. I'm trying to stay away from that CdA Leman and the Montegrappas! 

  1. Washington DC Fountain Pen Supershow Sign-up. I know this isn't a "deal" per se, but if you're interested in coming to the D.C. Pen Show, we're less than a month out so make your travel reservations now! 
  2. Caran d'Ache 849 (via Pen Chalet). The long-awaited fountain pen version of Caran d'Ache's much loved ballpoint is now available. 
  3. Caran d'Ache Ecridor Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). I've always admired these vintage-inspired metal Caran d'Ache fountain pens, now available through Pen Chalet.
  4. Caran d'Ache Leman Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). Now on deep, deep discount, here's a chance to grab this CdA flagship at more than 50% off. That yellow pen has been tempting me for a while. 
  5. Montegrappa Extra 1930 (via Nibsmith). Montegrappa is apparently exploring new pricing on their Extra 1930, which spells big trouble for me in DC as this pen has long been on my radar. Dan has you taken care of here. 
  6. Baron Fig Raspberry Honey (via Baron Fig). Baron Fig has released their latest limited edition Confidant, and this one is more in line with the Three-Legged Juggler edition, in that it comes with a story. 
  7. Delta Pens (via Anderson Pens). Rumors are flying that Italian Pen Company Delta is in trouble. With stock low at U.S. retailers, now is the time to pull the trigger on a Delta pen if you've been looking for one. The Andersons have one of the largest selections out there at the moment. 
  8. Delta Pens (via Chatterley Luxuries). Even Bryant Greer's Delta stock is lower, though he still has many of his special editions and collaborations available. I continue to highly recommend his celluloid Fusion 82s, designed in collaboration with Delta. I have two of these pens.  
  9. Kyoto TAG Inks (via Vanness Pens). These are excellent inks that I can't recommend enough. I have a review of the Kyo-no-oto 02 Amayou-Iro (bright pink) in the works.
  10. Platinum 3776 Shungyo Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). This gorgeous limited edition will be released next month. A transparent red demonstrator with rhodium plated trim? Count me in. 
  11. Platinum Classic Inks (via Vanness Pens). These new Platinum iron gall inks were heavily hyped when they were first released earlier this year. Now that the novelty has worn off a bit, they're easier to find in stock, and I've finally had a chance to try them.   
  12. Platinum Mix-Free Inks (via Vanness Pens). Any Platinum Inks labeled "mix free" can be combined to create an array of colors. Note: Don't mix any of the "Classic" iron gall inks with non-iron gall inks.  
  13. Papermate Inkjoy 0.5mm Gel Pens (via Amazon). A polarizing pen that for some reason people love to hate. I don't really understand this. During the recent Prime Day I threw a pack in my cart and have been very pleasantly surprised, especially with the near-immediate dry time. 
  14. Papermate Write Bros. Ballpoints (via Amazon). An old school classic from the office supply closet that along with the Bic Cristal doesn't seem to get enough love. 
  15. Bulb Syringe Three-Pack (via Amazon). I recently restocked on bulb syringes via Amazon and took advantage of this package deal.
