Pens and Things
This blog post is a bit left field for me, although not totally, because I just like all sorts of stationery and craft-y things.
Happy Friday! It's been a busy week, and I think it's only going to get busier as we head into the holidays.
We've got lots of new products to share. Here are some of the first few, mostly calligraphy related. We got a few new nibs in from Brause - the Rose, the 1 mm and 2.5 mm and the Index Nib (can you guess which one is my new favourite?? - having tried none of the four, of course my new favourite is the Index Finger).
Some of you may know I dabble in calligraphy now and again, and while I'm mostly just messing around, I really enjoy the physical act of putting pen to paper, the sound of the pen, seeing the trailing line of ink behind my nib, and so of course I'm always looking to see how I can improve or challenge myself.
We are almost there, as we've been unpacking, cleaning, and coordinating renovations here in our new space.
Many companies make italic or stub nibs as an option for their pens, including Lamy, TWSBI, Edison, and of course, Kaweco. These "italic" or "calligraphy" nibs are primarily a European writing style, so you may not find them as often on Japanese or Asian pens, except as a music nib.
I hope you are all having a merry and restful and happy holiday break with lots of good food and time with family and friends!
