So what's on my list for this weekend's Atlanta Pen Show? Since I haven't been to a show in quite a while, there are several things I really want to see, including this year's new Pelikan releases and the Sailor North American exclusives. Pen Chalet is also running some specials this weekend, including some fairly steep markdowns on the Visconti Rembrandt and the Conklin Mark Twain Demonstrator.

- Conklin Mark Twain Demonstrator (via Pen Chalet). A pen that flies under the radar, but sports a unique filling system and a lot of history. Pen Chalet periodically has them at a great price. My review here.
- Visconti Rembrandt (via Pen Chalet). A great price on Visconti's entry-level offering. I like Visconti's steel nibs (at least the uncoated ones), and the Rembrandt / Van Gogh series is a good place to start if you like the brand's aesthetics but don't want to spend hundreds of dollars. My prior review here.
- Visconti Van Gogh (via Pen Chalet). I had a really positive experience with the "Vincent's Chair" edition I had on loan and reviewed a while back, and I finally picked one up. The Van Gogh series is getting a bit hard to find, and I hope they're not being discontinued. My prior review here.
- Krishna Ink (via Vanness Pens). Last night at the "early bird arrivals" party here at the Atlanta show, I had the chance to look at some of Ana's swabs of Krishna inks, and the greens really jumped out at me.
- Colorverse Ink Voyager I Special Edition (via Pen Chalet). Colorverse has released a new special edition set of four inks with a theme centered around the 1977 launch of the Voyager I probe. I've become a fan of Colorverse Inks and have reviewed three of them so far.
- Waterman Charleston Fountain Pen (via Amazon). Is this the year I finally add one of these to my collection? I've been tempted before but have never followed through. I've always loved the art deco styling on this pen.
- TWSBI Eco-T Fountain Pen (via Anderson Pens). I like the TWSBI Eco, and the colorful "Eco-T" has been getting great reviews. I'm sad I missed the blue version. My prior review of the Eco here.
- Desiderata Pens (via Desiderata Pen Company). I've had the opportunity to test out some of Pierre's pens in the past, and have come away impressed. For those of you unfamiliar with Desiderata, they make fountain pens capable of holding a Zebra G calligraphy nib, providing vintage-style flex.
- Montblanc Petit Prince & Fox Ink (via Appelboom). I've fallen behind on my Montblanc ink collection/accumulation, and there are a bunch of new colors I'd like to see in person, this being one of them.
- Laban Taroko (via Goldspot). Goldspot sent me one of Laban's new Taroko fountain pens to review, and I've been really impressed with this pen, especially at the $100 price point.
- Pilot Vanishing Point "Stormtrooper White" (via Paul's Paper & Pens). At some point, I will add this white stormtrooper VP to my collection.
- Wing Sung 698 Piston Filler (via Amazon). These are starting to appear at vendors in the U.S., and I'd like to pick up some of these in the colors other than clear. My prior review here.
- Faggionato Pens (via Papier Plume). Papier Plume will be attending the Atlanta Show, from what I understand, and they will be bringing some show special inks and Faggionato Pens. Maybe I'll pick up another? I'm really enjoying the one I bought last month.
- Cases from Nock Co. (via Nock Co.). Brad and Jeff always have something special for the Atlanta Pen Show, and I'm looking forward to seeing the Seed A5 in person.
- The TGS Amazon Page (via Amazon). I run across many more items (pens, pencils, books, accessories, etc.) in my online "travels." I can't feature them all on TGS, but Amazon has an option where I can set up an affiliate page to host product recommendations, etc. This also provides a way for me to earn a referral fees and helps me support the site. Thanks everyone!
