It's been a big week for pendom, with the Atlanta Pen Show coming to a close, the launch of a new Kanilea model, and more. I have a feeling this is going to turn into an expensive year. The new Le Petit Prince-themed Montblanc 146 is killing me.

- Kanilea Hanauma Bay Fountain Pen (via Kanilea Pen Company). Kanilea has just launched their latest model, which is a must-see. I have two Kanilea pens and love them both. My prior review here.
- Montegrappa Monte-Grappa (via Pen Chalet). You either like Montegrappa's design or you don't, but you can't argue with how this pen writes. The new JoWo nibs are excellent.
- Montegrappa Fortuna Blue Blazer (via Pen Chalet). This pen was absolutely stunning in person. The new version of the Fortuna also features the JoWo nibs. I really like the shape of the Fortuna, and now the nib upgrade makes it even more attractive. My prior review here.
- Opus 88 Picnic Fountain Pens (via Pen Chalet). Pen Chalet has the new Opus 88 Picnic eyedropper in stock. If you're intrigued by the Japanese-style eyedropper concept, but don't like the ebonite on the Koloro, check out the Picnic. Everyone I know who has used Opus 88 pens to date has been happy. My review here.
- Rohrer & Klingner SketchINK (via Anderson Pens). Rohrer & Klingner has a set of nano pigmented inks that are both waterproof and lightfast. The artwork is, well, "interesting."
- Kaweco Red AL-Sport U.S. Special Edition (via Vanness Pens). One of my purchases from this year's Atlanta Pen Show. I hope Kaweco keeps this color option long-term, because it looks amazing. I've previously reviewed the Kaweco AL Sport here.
- Montblanc Le Petit Prince Collection (via Appelboom). Appelboom has Montblanc's entire Le Petit Prince collection in stock, including the new platinum-trimmed 146 with the star on the clip. Just what I need! By the way, the Montblanc 146 is one of my favorite "workhorse pens."
- Pelikan M605 White Transparent Special Edition (via Amazon). These pens are getting harder to find at retail, now that the white/turquoise has been released. The M600/M605 might be my favorite Pelikan size out there.
- Aurora 88 Minerali in Amber and Cinnabar (via Pen Chalet). The Aurora 88 Minerali demonstrator has launched in the orange and red variants. I previously reviewed one of the Azurite pens.
- Aurora Optima Anniversary Flex (via Goldspot). Goldspot has Aurora's new Optima Flex available in a range of solid colors, including some pastels. The light blue might be my favorite, and these pens currently come with a free bottle of Aurora ink. My review of the Aurora Optima here.
- Aurora 88 Urano Pre-Order (via Nibs.com). Some retailers have the super-limited Urano available for pre-order, though there's probably no guarantee that you'll get one. Nibs.com is an excellent option, and they will tune the nib before they ship your pen.
- Sailor Reglus Night Black (via The Pen Company). A slimmer blacked-out Sailor from the Company's lower-priced Reglus line. The Pen Company has sent me one for review, so look for this pen on the site soon.
- Colorverse Voyager 1 Limited Edition Ink Set (via Pen Chalet). Colorverse has released a set of four 15ml bottles commemorating the launch of Voyager 1 in 1977.
- Sailor Pro Gear Earth King of Pen (via Anderson Pens). The Sailor Pro Gear Earth, in a semi-translucent brown acrylic, didn't get much love. It's a pen that's grown on me, especially in the larger King of Pen size.
- Free Shipping Offer from Paul's Paper & Pens (via Paul's Paper & Pens). Paul is currently offering free global shipping on purchases over £50, using the coupon code TGSFree!
- 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!
