I discuss a pen with a falcon nib.
I’m behind on the blog. I’ll add content this weekend.
Fountain pen aficionado chrisrap52 gave me the chance to use a Waterman’s Ideal 52 fountain pen. This is a pen which could be as much as 100 years old. In 1915, Waterman began to produce this pen. It had a hard rubber barrel and was a lever filler with a latex sac. To get around
The Pilot Kaküno is a fun pen. It looks like it was made for kids, but who doesn’t want their pen to smile at them? Seriously, this pen has a nib that smiles! There are a lot of similarities to the Pilot Metropolitan and Pilot Prera. I’ll be posting a rodeo later (after school lets

Because of this pen, Montegrappa Bourdeaux is one of my favorite inks. However, in this review I used Noodler’s Ottoman Rose, another one of my favorites. It is a smooth
I don’t review pens in the order that I buy them. This is the first expensive pen I ever bought. I was holding off on reviewing it because I wanted to do a good job. Looking back, the day I was losing my voice was not the day to film this review. Nevertheless, it’s a
