This week we have yet another Leonardo Momento Zero released in a gorgeous new acrylic, this time a “Mediterranean Coral.” If you like red/orange/coral pens, check this one out. Leonardo has also released a set of inks. The rest of this week’s highlights include several things I’m looking forward to checking out in person at the D.C. Pen Show, just over a month away! Happy shopping!
Leonardo Officina Italiana Momento Zero in Mediterranean Coral (via Pen Chalet). Leonardo keeps releasing some stunning additions to the Momento Zero, including this coral resin.
Leonardo Officina Italiana Ink (via Pen Chalet). Leonardo has released a series of inks to complement its pen lineup. The color range seems similar to the late Omas inks…
J. Herbin Kyanite du Nepal (via Vanness Pens). Vanness has samples of the newest addition to the Herbin 1798 lineup, a bright blue with silver shimmer called Kyanite du Nepal. See my review here for some additional photos of this ink!
PenBBS Inks (via Vanness Pens). Vanness let me know that they are restocked on PenBBS inks and will be carrying select PenBBS pens going forward, which will be great not waiting for shipping from China!
Taccia Spectrum Fountain Pen in Mosaic Umber (via The Nibsmith). These pens seem to be few and far between, and are one of a handful of things I’m looking forward to seeing at the upcoming D.C. Pen Show!
Sailor Graphite Lighthouse North American Special Edition (via The Nibsmith). Another that I’m looking forward to seeing and handling in person! This is a great-looking pen that’s been lost a bit among the sea of new releases.
Sailor King of Pen (via Anderson Pens). Anderson Pens is your one-stop shop for all variations on Sailor’s King of Pen ultra luxury model, in both acrylic and celluloid variants. Some are available equipped with Sailor’s bespoke nibs.
Lamy Safari Starter Fountain Pen and Ink Set (via Goldspot). Goldspot is offering a sale on a complete set that gives the beginner all they need to get started writing, including a Lamy Safari fountain pen, a bottle of Lamy ink, a cartridge and a converter.
PenBBS Limited Edition Materials (via PenBBS/Etsy). PenBBS carries a range of special and limited edition acrylics in their Etsy store, which typically aren’t available at other retailers.
PenBBS 352 (via eBay). PenBBS has introduced a new cartridge/converter model that tracks the overall shape of the 355 “bulkfiller”. This pen is potentially a good option for those who don’t want to deal with a more complex filling system.
Blackwing Volume 10 (via Blackwing). I think I’ve decided to re-up my Blackwing Volumes subscription for another year. Blackwing has been on a tear with their past few editions and this one is no exception.
Pen Cases and Wraps from PK Custom Goods (via PK Custom Goods/Etsy). Check out the recently restocked PK Custom Goods Etsy store for unique handmade and embroidered pen cases and wraps, in various themes. The stained glass and Native American patterns are gorgeous. I picked up two of these cases in Atlanta, so you can look for a review at some point.
Pelikan M101N Blue-Grey (via Appelboom). Still on my list…. Maybe a D.C. Pen Show purchase? I didn’t expect to like this one nearly as much as a I do. Another pen to look for in D.C.?
Moonman C1 Fountain Pen (via Amazon). Check out Moonman’s latest, a high-capacity clear eyedropper that also has cartridge-converter capability. I can’t get over how good Moonman’s nibs are.
Moonman N3 (via eBay). Looking for a “work-friendly” pen on a budget? The N3 may not be actual celluloid, but the acrylic has a lot of depth, the nib is good, and the pen is just slim enough to work well in a planner. Check out my full review here.
