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:

Sailor Desk Pen fountain pen & Uniball Alpha Gel MultiPen

My purchase at paperinkarts.com:

27 dip pen nibs!

My purchase at allwritenow.net (the 10% sale until the end of Jan. on Varuna pens was the last straw ;-) ):

"Dipless" dip pen

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?)
