TWSBI 540 Fountain Pen Review

TWSBI a company that I have come to love and trust, its fairly new to me and yet so many people seem to know all about it. I was late on the band wagon getting into fountain pens fairly recently myself. The TWSBI 540 fountain pen is a really cool pen. for $50 bucks you can have a pen with a wide range of performance. A pen that clearly outshines other pens similar in looks and writing abilities and stature. I was lucky enough to get a small portion of pens, if you can get your hands on at least one pen next year, make sure you get a TWSBI.

SHEAFFER 100 Fountain Pen Review

 Sheaffer 100 Fountain Pen.

The Sheaffer 100 is one of the great finds you happen to stumble across. Not knowing anything about Sheaffer I had a chance thanks to the recommendations of Brian Goulet.

Sharpie Stainless Steel Pen Review

The Sharpie Stainless Steel pen is not a new concept for sharpie, they have the current Sharpie fine tip pen out for a few years now. But to have an all Stainless Steel pen that's refillable and doesn't bleed through... well that is something different. Sharpie and I go way back to when I was first starting school. It was the magic marker that never goes away... even when you decide it might be fun to color the walls in your room! a few decades later this pen has a new place in my pen place. Good for labels, signing the back of credit cards (you have to let it dry for an hour) and jotting down stuff.


The best part of this pen is the looks and the feel of a sleek pen in your hand, the next are probably more important like ink or reliability.

Well its safe to say that there is absolutely no bleed through. It’s also fade-, water- and smear-resistant when dry.

Also the pen is refillable so it saves space in the land fill for the replaceable empty cartridges! For less than $5 bucks its a real winner in any pen circulation.

Custom Made Desk Organizer

Original Custom Made Desk Organizer Design
In my pursuit of my hobbies in the realm of pens, papers, and inks, I have acquired a mass of papers and inks to which I have run out of space. Living in a small apartment I find that just putting them anywhere was unacceptable. I used to put my notebooks on my computers, by my feet, on the dressers, or in the closet. A desk organizer from say Staples cost upwards of $50 and is bulky and distasteful. Hand made wood organizers are great, they are attractive and highly functional to be custom built to suite your needs... I however do not have the tools at my disposal or the space. I had a stroke of genius, as vague as it sounds, why not make your organizer out of paper? Cardboard to say the least which came to this. No I didn't make it but it gave me a foothold to work with.

TWSBI Inkwells Purple, Green, & Blue!

The Envy of the inkwells

Ever since I've been into this hobby I've always wanted to have one or two good inkwells, little did I know I would have several! However, I now have three unique inkwells that work perfectly with the new TWSBI 540 pens and TWSBI ROC 100 pens too.

Within this digital trans-mutational pages of this blog I'm sure if you hadn't already had your eye on this baby, I hope my inspiration and your dark side of your conscience lead you to triumph.

Lamy Vista

Here is my Lamy Vista this is my workhorse pen, the pen for now I carry with me in my pocket, in my shirt and everywhere else. I hate getting stuck without a pen, and now that I have my fountain pens, I hate using ... ballpoints. *shivers with disgust* Its durable, functional and affordable ($28)

Private Reserve Avacado!

The Ink of green, the name of misspelling... The Name matches the color perfectly. and as I write, I can just picture what a ripe avacado looks like... This ink has the perfect color, with brown undertones. This ink goes on smooth with no hesitation from my Lamy Vista. The uniqueness of this ink is that it starts bright green, then as it dries turns to a dark green, with hints of brown in the right lighting.

Huge Package Today!

 Here is my huge package I ordered for the Goulet's I've actually been sitting on the checkout for almost a week. I've been patiently waiting for a pen that was supposed to come the first week of September but didn't show.
