Deals & Drops: Introducing Pelikan Stone Garden, Just in Time for Pelikan Hubs!

Why not get a head start on Pelikan “Hubs Day” by spotlighting all the new upcoming Pelikan releases, as well as some old ones that are hanging around, sometimes at very good prices? I hope to see everyone who registered for this year’s Nashville Hub tomorrow night, and then for a special event on Saturday afternoon with Vanness Pens in Nashville! Be sure to keep up with the Vanness Instagram Feed for location and details!

  1. Pelikan M800 Stone Garden Fountain Pen (via Appelboom). So the Renaissance Brown nearly drew me in, but I figured that at the end of the day, I didn’t need another M800. Then I saw this one, which jumped to the top of my “to by” list. Available for pre-order now.

  2. Pelikan Special Edition M205 Olivine (via Pen Chalet). Again, the best special edition M205 that I’ve seen from the Company in years. Available for pre-order now.

  3. Pelikan M205 Clear Demonstrator (via Pen Chalet). Another winner! If you’ve been wanting a clear Pelikan demo, but don’t want the larger M800 size (with the larger price tag), check this out.

  4. Pelikan M600 Turquoise White Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). This pen is a steal, the way it’s currently priced. One of the few special/limited edition options in the mid-size M600 model.

  5. Pelikan Ink (via Vanness Pens). Whether it’s Pelikan’s standard 4001 line, or upscale “Edelstein” series, Pelikan makes great ink that’s safe for most pens. Don’t miss Olivine, the 2018 Edelstein “Ink of the Year,” - and you’ll probably have a bottle coming your way if you’ve signed up for this year’s “Hubs” event.

  6. Pelikan Souveran 205 Classic Highlighter Do Pen Set (via Amazon). I haven’t seen this one in a while - the Yellow M205 demonstrator paired with highlighter ink. A good price to boot.

  7. Pelikan M205 Transparent Blue Demonstrator (via Amazon). I missed out the first time, but not the second. This one is getting more scarce, so if you want one, I’d act quickly while stock remains available at scattered vendors and Amazon sellers.

  8. Pen Wraps from Written in Rice (via Etsy / Written in Rice). Claire has restocked her Etsy store and has a small number of her pen wraps available.

  9. Baron Fig Slim Bifold Leather Wallet (via Baron Fig). I’ve reviewed Baron Fig leather goods before, and I’m glad to see they’re expanding the line. This bifold wallet I’m testing out has far exceeded expectations!

  10. Tarumi Apricot Sailor Pro Gear Slim (via eBay/Cool Japan). Readers of this blog will know that sometimes the only way to get Japanese store exclusive special edition pens, like this one with retailer Nagasawa is through eBay or a reseller. I’ve ordered from Seller Cool Japan before with success. There are other colors as well, designed to match the Kobe-Nagasawa inks, like Suma-rikyu Rose and Gakuen-toshi Fresh Green.

  11. Rikyu Moon Yellow Sailor Pro-Color Nagasawa Exclusive (via eBay/Cool Japan). Sailor has brought a very limited selection of their steel-nibbed Pro Color fountain pens to the U.S., but of course Japan has more.

  12. Platinum 3776 Urushi Maki-e Galaxy Starlight (via Anderson Pens). Wow, this pen looks gorgeous. I’m a huge fan of the Platinum 3776, and I’ve probably not written enough about it here. The pricing for this Urushi/Maki-e work is a (relative) bargain as well.

  13. Conklin Nozac Special Pricing (via Goldspot). Goldspot has dropped the price of the Conklin Nozac as part of their “weekly dip” promotion, including on pens featuring their stub and “omniflex” nibs.

  14. Build-Your-Own Custom Leather Cover (via Etsy/One Star Leather). Looking for a unique leather cover for your new Hobonichi or favorite brand of notebook? Keegan will build one especially for you. Check out my review here.

  15. Galen Leather Pencil Case (via Amazon). Sometimes simple is the best, especially with leather products. For some reason, this pencil case/carryall caught my eye. Check out my review of Galen Leather notebook covers.
