Pens and Things
It's with some sadness and nostalgia that I'm letting you know the 78G is being discontinued. The classic red and black and teal and green colours are soon to be gone from our shelves!
It's been too long since I last took a look a fountain pen on the blog! A bit out of distraction and disorganization, with our recent trip, and other things going on in the shop, but here is one of my all time favourite pens: the Pilot Custom 92. It's a piston filler with a smooth and wet 14K nib.
The long awaited Caroube de Chypre, the brown 1670 ink from J. Herbin, has arrived! I had (and still have) a whole bunch of blog posts in the queue, some of which I had ideally wanted done before we leave on our trip but now may never happen given my organizational skills.
I hope you're all having a great week so far! I think it might be a shorter week for most of us, with the holiday on Monday.
Sometimes we get customers who tell us they use their Lamy or TWSBI 1.5 italic nibs as highlighters, filling them with a highlighter ink like Noodler's Firefly, or another light ink. 1.5 is a pretty broad nib for writing, and you can get some good calligraphic action out of it, but you can also consider using a Parallel Pen if you're ready to get serious about your highlighting.
