  1. Aurora 88 Unica Nera Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). For all of you who passed on the Aurora 88 Satin Black because you didn’t want gold trim, here’s the pen for you! I received one for review and will be posting my thoughts in the next few weeks.

  2. Conway Stewart Model 100 in Honey Noire Acrylic (via Vanness Pens). After being out of stock for some time, Vanness has more Conway Stewarts in stock in the Honey Noire Acrylic. This material is one of my favorites of all time, and you can check out my review of this pen here.

  3. Esterbrook Estie in Evergreen Acrylic (via Pen Chalet). The fifth color Estie (a dark green) comes in gold or silver trim - I’m not sure there’s a version I don’t like of this pen.

  4. Pen Chalet 10 Pen and 20 Pen Display Cases. Very attractive pen storage options are now on deep discount. If you’d like to add some attractive desktop storage at a reasonable price, you won't want to miss these.

  5. Lamy Vibrant Pink Limited Editions (via Pen Chalet). Pen Chalet is discounting remaining Lamy “Vibrant Pink” pens and ink to make room for the upcoming annual limited edition (bronze?). I’ve enjoyed the Vibrant Pink bottled ink.

  6. Sailor Bespoke King of Pen Urushi (via Anderson Pens). Want some eye candy for the weekend? Check out Sailor’s Bespoke limited editions!

  7. Pens and Leather Goods from ATELEIA Craft + Design (via Etsy/ATELEIA). If you’re looking for a classy, modern pen body for your Pilot Hi-Tec-C or Pentel Energel refill, check out the offerings from ATELEIA in brass, stainless steel, and copper. They also have leather goods.

  8. One Star Leather Cover for Baron Fig Confidant (via Etsy/One Star Leather). There’s at least one of these Baron Fig Confidant covers available in harness leather, and I can vouch that they’re gorgeous and durable. Check out my review here.

  10. Special Edition Hardbound Journals from Atelier Musubi (via Musubi). Daryl and his team have released a new series of A5 Special Edition bound journals, and they’re beautiful, as always.

  11. KACO Retro Fountain Pen Set (via Amazon). So these are the newest Chinese fountain pens that everyone’s been raving about. I haven’t had a chance to check them out but probably will this year.

  12. KACO Sky II (via Amazon). Another KACO, a bit higher-end, in anodized aluminum. I have a Sky I and it’s an excellent writer.
