This week saw the initial release of Pineider's new "La Grande Bellezza Gemstone" series, which feature a new flexible nib. You can also now purchase the Wing Sung vacumatic filler fountain pen, as well as the Jinhao Shark pens, through Amazon. Happy shopping!

- Pocket Fountain Pen (via Inventery). I have a set of these moving through the review process. Look for something on the blog soon! They're great, and the rollerball tip works very well!
- Montegrappa Monte-Grappa (via Pen Chalet). Montegrappa's decision to switch to JoWo nibs is justified by how well this pen writes. Available in either steel or gold nib versions, with a ratcheting piston filler.
- Pelikan M120 Special Edition (via Pen Chalet). I'm really digging the looks of this year's M120, though I suspect that at the end of the day it will be too small for my hand. For those who like smaller, slimmer pens, it may be perfect.
- Pineider La Grande Bellezza "Gemstone" Fountain Pens (via Vanness Pens). Now THIS is what I've been waiting to see from Pineider. The "Grande Bellezza" series has been updated with new materials and a Palladium-plated 14kt "flex" nib. Looks interesting.
- Aurora Optima Flex (via Appelboom). Appelboom has the full array of Optima Flex colors available. That yellow... Check out my impressions of the Aurora flex nib here.
- Visconti Silk Pen Cases (via Anderson Pens). I've always heard that Visconti makes a nice pen case. The newest are a combination of silk and leather.
- Free Gift ($20 Value) with Faber-Castell Loom or Ambition Purchase (via Goldspot). Goldspot is currently running a promotional offer on Faber-Castell. Visit Goldspot for the full terms and conditions.
- Baron Fig Confidant Flagship Leather Cover (via OneStarLeather/Etsy). One Star leather has one of these great covers in stock, as of the time of this review. Check out my review here.
- Pilot Fountain Pens (via Paul's Paper & Pens). Paul carries some Vanishing Points that you can't easily find in the U.S., including the "Bumblebee" Yellow and Black, as well as the Crimson Sunrise limited edition.
- Wing Sung 618 (via Amazon). The Wing Sung 618 comes in an array of different colors, including transparent red, blue, green, and pink. Check out my first impressions of this pen that's turned into a knockaround workhorse for me.
- Wing Sung 601 (via Amazon). Yes, the Wing Sung 601 pump/vacumatic/draw filler, whatever you want to call it, is also available. This is a surprisingly nice pen that I've been using a LOT recently. Available in a wide array of colors, with or without ink windows.
- Jinhao Shark Pens (via Amazon). I had the chance to test these out at the Atlanta Pen Show this year, and they're surprisingly good, especially where they are easily available on Amazon and you can purchase the whole set. Some smaller sets are Prime eligible, as of the date of publication of this review.
