    Review by Laura Cameron A few weeks ago, Ana told me she had a pen for review that she thought I would like.  She brought me the Diplomat Excellence A, Rhombus Guilloch Lapis Black Fountain Pen ($225MSRP).  I’m not going to lie; when I first saw the pen I thought “now THAT is a fountain…

    The Bexley Sleeve Filler Fountain Pen (Retail $275, Special Offer $175) is a bit different than any pen I’ve ever used before.  It features a pair of gold bands on both ends. When I saw it at Vanness Pen Shop back in the Spring, my curiosity was piqued. I knew I had to try it…

    I don’t often post photos of my pen stash but I’m making an exception today because this is a very special edition to my collection. I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in a small edition of Franklin-Christoph Pocket 20s utilizing rare Tibaldi Impero Celluloid that Thomas Hall had acquired and wanted to…

    Review by Laura Cameron When I first saw a picture of the 3952 Abalone Shell Fountain Pen ($148) with fine nib I was struck by how pretty it was.  As I mentioned when I reviewed the Diplomat Excellence A, I am a big fan of pens that are elegant in their attention to detail.  The…

    Review by Laura Cameron (and Ana Reinert) Ana: Since both Laura and I have ended up purchasing or acquiring several of the same products, we have decided to do some “tag team” reviews where we provide two points of view. Since our pen experience levels differ and our tastes differ, sometimes our opinions will be…

    When I’m at the San Francisco Pen Show, I make a point to check out the the Peyton Street Pens table. They carry some of the most unusual items, particularly pens from the Indian manufacturer Ranga as well as many amazing restored vintage pens. This year, I picked up an ebonite Bamboo Slim model made…

    Aaron asks: Have you ever heard of adapting an old lever bladder filling pen into a converter set up? I had a suspicion that making this sort of adaptation was not exactly possible but I reached out to Nibgrinder and pen expert Mark Bacas to get a bigger brain in on this and here’s what he…

    I got lucky enough to be able to purchase the NOS Esterbrook Aztec Gold purse fountain pen and pencil set from Jesi (aka JesiRaine of BYOB Pen Club) a few weeks ago. The pen even had the sticker on it. I had never seen the Aztec Gold color before so I couldn’t resist this set.…

    Ever since I started buying fountain pens, I’ve wanted a Pelikan. I initially thought I wanted an M200 series. I liked the simplicity and classic looks but didn’t know when I began collecting what the difference was between the various lines of Pelikan. Over time, I learned that as the numbers got bigger (for the…

    Vanness Pens was lucky enough to get a custom edition of the beloved Franklin-Christoph Pocket 45 ($105)  in a translucent turquoise blue and I was lucky enough to get one from the first batch. Vanness finally received their shipment on the second batch and there’s already a waiting list for a third shipment. We Franklin-Christoph…

    Review by Laura Cameron In the past, Ana has let me try writing with her Sailors (specifically the Fresca), and I knew I wanted one.  So when the special edition Sailor Professional Gear Slim in Purple Cosmos (retail: $250) went live, I eagerly pre-ordered. What came next was months of waiting and wondering if there…

    I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately but I think I was inspired to buy another cheap Chinese fountain pen from a photo on Economical Penster’s Instagram. All those demonstrators lined up made me weak. So I hopped over to Ebay and I bought a clear demonstrator Wing Sung 618 (approx $10.70) which is a weird…

    I was curious about the Opus 88 Koloro fountain pen ($93) which combine ebonite body components with transparent resin as well as being eyedropper fillers. This combination of elements seemed very unusual in a streamlined design I found aesthetically appealing so I was willing to give it a try. The pens ship in a fairly…

    One of my first fountain pen loves was Kaweco fountain pens. When I was given the opportunity to get a limited edition Bungubox June Bride Something Blue AL-Sport, I said yes immediately. I didn’t know what it would cost with the premium and currency exchange and shipping but I threw caution to the wind and…

    Every year, one of the most anticipated releases is the Lamy AL-Star and Safari fountain pens and accompanying limited edition inks. It is an absolute frenzy, especially since over the last few years, there has been more interest in both the pens and the inks than there has been available supply. So, when information was…
