New Pen Goodies and Grail Pen!
In an attempt to ease my recent sadness, I went on a bit of a pen splurge and purchased a few things from several pen places. I spent a lot more time adding all kinds of items to my shopping baskets, but then pared down to things I actually wanted, instead of getting everything according to a whim. It was entertaining “window shopping” at the various websites to see what they’re currently offering!
My purchase at JetPens.com:
My purchase at paperinkarts.com:
My purchase at allwritenow.net (the 10% sale until the end of Jan. on Varuna pens was the last straw ):
And, finally, the grail pen! Saved up for a while to get this one. It’s a Namiki Falcon, Soft Fine nib, that has been custom ground by John Mottishaw as an extra fine, extra flexible Spencerian approximation nib.
Now, if I only had more time to actually use them! Hope to put up a writing sample of the Namiki Falcon soon! (Can anyone guess which ink I put in it?)
