Deals & Drops: New Materials from Leonardo Pens, Return of the S.I.G. Nib, and More!

I’m glad to see things are starting to pick up a bit on the new release front, with Leonardo Pens announcing a new material for their “Momento Zero” pen, Pelikan announcing a new M101N, a new book from Cal Newport and more! On the horizon (maybe for next week?) is a new season of Mars-themed inks from Colorverse! Happy shopping!

  4. “Grandpa’s Basement” Specials (via Vanness Pens). There are only two Aurora 88 Minerali pens and three Optima flex pens remaining on clearance! Don’t miss your chance to pick up one of these pens at a steep discount. I love the Minerali I purchased late last year, and you can read a review I did of one of these pens here.
