Ok, I couldn’t resist the Retro 51 Typewriter, and there are a bunch of additional new Retro 51 releases, including several retailer collaborations, out this month, as well as some great older models that are still hanging around. If you’re looking for a place to keep all of those Retro 51s, don’t miss the new “System” Deluxe Six Pen Roll from Rickshaw Bagworks, available for pre-order over at the Clicky Post website. Happy shopping!
Retro 51 Typewriter Rollerball (via Pen Chalet). I couldn’t resist picking up one of the black Typewriter pens, exclusive to Pen Chalet.
Vanness Artist Series 2019 (via Vanness Pens). This year’s “Artist Series” is a collaboration with Little Rock-based Tattoo artist Katie McGowan, featuring mandala-style artwork over a copper base with antique copper trim.
Retro 51 Invader Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). Last year, Retro 51 revitalized their fountain pen lineup, switching to JoWo nibs. Does that mean we’ll see more limited edition and exclusive fountain pens, like this classic 8-bit video game-themed pen? Hopefully the answer is yes!
Retro 51 Tokyo Skyline Limited Edition (via Goldspot). Don’t miss the latest “Skyline” release from Goldspot, this time featuring Tokyo. The pens in this series glow in the dark to reveal a “nighttime” skyline.
Retro 51 Terabyte Tornado 2.0 (via Anderson Pens). If you missed out on the first “Terabyte” fountain pen, now’s your chance to pick up the “Terabyte 2.0” in all-black trim.
The System and Space Cat Pen Roll by Rickshaw Bagworks (via Clicky Post). Mike Dudek and Matthew Morse have collaborated on this Deluxe Six Pen Roll from Rickshaw Bagworks that’s sure to complement your Retro 51 “The System” pens! (Now we just need a System Retro 51 Fountain Pen!)
Lamy Studio LX All Black (via Appelboom). I finally bit on this one, since the Studio is one of my favorite “unsung heroes” of the pen world and I can’t resist all-black pens.
Ateleia Heirloom Quality Machined Pen (via Ateleia/Etsy). Not a fan of rollerball refills? Check out Ateleia’s pens in stainless steel, raw and black aluminum, brass and copper. They accept several popular gel refills, including the Pentel Energel and Uniball Signo, as well as Pilot or Fisher refills, depending on which insert you choose. (You can also opt to purchase both inserts for maximum versatility.)
Kaweco Skyline Sport Demonstrator in Transparent Turquoise (via Goldspot). Goldspot recently announced an exclusive collaboration with Kaweco on a transparent demonstrator pen in the “Skyline” series.
Aurora 88 Mercury Limited Edition (via Nibsmith). Pre-order the latest limited edition release in the Aurora 88 “Stellar Collection,” which features a gorgeous marbled grey Auroloide.
PenBBS 469 Double-Sided Eyedropper in “Misty Mountains” (via PenBBS/Etsy). When will PenBBS just stop making pens in new materials that I want to try? Hopefully never, but it’s not easy on your wallet. I love transparent acrylic with ribbon-like swirls of color, especially in blues and greys. Check out my review of this particular model here.
Visconti Rembrandt “Master of Arts” Eclipse Fountain Pen (via Pen Chalet). I’ve not noticed this particular color of the Rembrandt before, and it’s quite attractive, especially at the current price point.
Faber-Castell e-Motion “Pure Black” Edition (via Appelboom). One of my personal favorite “workhorse” fountain pens that I always recommend to those who want something more substantial to write with, though this pen is exceptionally well-balanced for its weight. Check out my review here.
WIng Sung 601 Vacumatic Fountain Pen (via Amazon). Looking for a way to test out a vintage vacumatic-style filling system without a large investment? Wing Sung pens are a great way to start. Check out my review of some Wing Sung piston-fillers here.
Fisher Space Pen Black Titanium Nitride “Astronaut” Pen (via Amazon). The original Fisher Space Pen, with a new darker coating!
