Fountain Pen Ink Review: Omas Green #INKWEEK @GouletPens

Fountain Pen Review: Lamy Studio – Imperial Blue EF

This is the Lamy Studio Fountain pen in Imperial Blue. It is a nice pen. It’s not a gold nibbed vintage masterpiece but it’s a retro modern stylish pen with a ton going for it. And, if you spend a bit more there actually are a handful of options that will get you a Studio […]

Large Double Pen Black Synthetic Quiver Pen Holder

The pen Quiver is an interesting concept to me. It’s basically a middle ground between just putting your pen on a notebook with a rubber band and having a separate enclosed case for your pen. It keeps your pen where you want it, with your notebook. It keeps it more secure than just having it […]

Anthracite Grey Leuchtturm1917 Large Dot Grid Notebook Review @GouletPens

Fountain Pen Ink Review: De Atramentis Apple Blossom #INKWEEK
