Deals & Drops: New King of Pen Models More Widely Available, Ink Sales, and More!

A bit of a slow week in terms of new releases, but the new Sailor King of Pen models in Fresca Blue and Mandarin Orange appear to be getting a widespread release, and there are still some deals to be had on Colorverse and Bung Box as retailers look to reduce their stock, presumably to make room for new colors this year. Happy shopping!

  1. Sailor King of Pen in Orange and Fresca Blue (via Pen Chalet). Pen Chalet has the new Sailor King of Pen models in stock, available for what I believe is the first time in last year’s North American exclusive colors. If you’ve been saving up for a splurge, this might be it.

  2. Pen Chalet Display Cases (via Pen Chalet). Ron has his Pen Chalet branded display cases on sale, in both 10 pen and 20 pen capacity. A great way to display your collection if you are looking for more storage, and it looks like these are on clearance so grab one while you can.

  3. Esterbrook Estie (via Pen Chalet). The newest Esterbrook is now available in a fourth color, Evergreen, with both chrome and steel trim options. Check out my review of the Estie here.

  4. Colorverse Ink on Sale (via Vanness Pens). Vanness has all of the great colors from Colorverse on sale!

  5. Bung Box Ink on Sale (via Vanness Pens). Now’s a good opportunity to grab multiple Bung Box inks at a reduced price, along with other markdowns on pens and more, in the “Grandpa’s Basement” section of the website.

  6. Pelikan M1005 Stresemann (via Appelboom). Appelboom has great pricing on the latest edition of the “Big Bird” in the Pelikan lineup. This may be the year I add a M1000-size pen.

  7. Diplomat Aero in Red (via Anderson Pens). Don’t miss your opportunity to grab this special color for Anderson Pens.

  8. Free Commemorative 100th Anniversary Chopsticks with Purchase of Pilot “Crossed Lines” Vanishing Point (via Goldspot). Odd way to commemorate last year’s hundredth anniversary, but you can’t say Pilot did nothing!

  9. Italian Leather Notebook Cover (via British Belt Company/Etsy). I’m loving my leather notebook cover from British Belt Co.! I opted for the burgundy, and it’s really nice, soft pebbled leather. Check out my full review here.

  10. “The Last Leaf Crescent Moon and Crimson” Fountain Pen (via 18111com/Esty). Wow, this pen by Yoshi Nakama hits everything I look for in a custom fountain pen, from the color scheme to the motif to the bronze roll stopper. Something I’ll be looking for in D.C. this year.

  11. Moonman M2 Eyedropper Fountain Pen (via Amazon). I’m continually amazed at how good the nib on my Moonman M2 is, despite owning so many pens much more expensive than this one. Now available with different color metallic sections, in in both .5mm and .38mm nibs. Check out my review here.

  12. Pineider Snorkel Filler (via Pen Chalet). If you primarily use cartridge converter pens, you may not need a traveling inkwell to help you get the last 1/3 of an ink bottle into your pen. I’ve also been enjoying this little accessory.
