16th July, 2015: A new
model from Wality, the 69T eyedropper. The Wality
69T is a large pen, and like so many Indian made pens
is an eyedropper filler. The completely clear barrel
allows you to see at a glance exactly how much ink you
have remaining and the large barrel size means that you
can get well over 2ml of ink in each fill! The caps and
gripping sections are available in a variety of
colours. The Wality Clear Acrylic pen is a very
inexpensive way to start your eyedropper adventure!

Eyedropper Pens here: here.
16th July, 2015:
The Varuna Ebonite Dip Pens are now available
in three new colours - Olive Ripple (pictured), Green
Ripple, and Brown Ripple. The Varuna Dip Pens are
all made from hard rubber (ebonite), and as they are
all hand turned, you never get two exactly the same.
The pictures below are just representative - the
decoration is never quite the same on any two pens.
They are all fitted with a finned ebonite feed, and a
gold plated steel Wality nib in a fine point. As they
use fountain pen style feeds, they will write for a
good while per dip, and if you wish you can even fit
your favourite vintage fountain pen nib - a vintage
size 2 nib is just about right in these pens.

Pens here: here.
18th June, 2015: Now in
stock is the fabulous new Pelikan M805 Demonstrator
pen. The Demonstrator as a completely transparent
product was first launched to show how the piston
mechanism works and soon became a huge success.
Especially technically interested people are fascinated
to see how the barrel fills with ink. After the last
launch of the M800 Demonstrator in 2008, Pelikan now
offers this unusual product as a Special Edition in the
size 805, i.e. with palladium plated trimmings. To
harmonize the optical appearance, the 18 carat gold nib
is entirely covered by rhodium. Due to the high quality
requirements of Pelikan and the fact that the
attractiveness of this product is based on the
completely transparent body, it is necessary to work
with perfectly cleaned production machines, so that not
a single color particle remains. This is the engraved
version with technical descriptions in English. See the
close-up photo below for details.

Special Edition pens here.
4th June, 2015: We like
brass. And so do Kaweco. New in, the Brass Sport.
Hewn from solid brass, the Brass Sport pens take
ruggedness and good looks to a new height. Tougher than
the Al-Sport, and heavier too, this is a go-anywhere
pen. Kaweco have left the brass unpolished, so it has a
little texture to it and a really cool vintage look.
Slip it in your pocket, and you're good to go.

Introducing the new Kaweco Liliput Fire
fountain pen. Elegant Simplicity - more than just
design and trend.It was in 1910 that KAWECO first
produced a Liliput fountain pen of ebonite. The remake
of this series is new made of solid brass as a fountain
pen with a steel nib and as a matching ballpoint pen.
Only 97mm long when closed, the Liliput is one of the
smallest frountain pens that will accept standard ink
cartridges. To make the distinctive and unique Fire
Blue pattern, Kaweco have taken a steel liliput and
subject it to intense and localised heat. When the pen
cools, these patterns are revealed. Each pen has
totally different patterns in blues, reds, yellows and
browns. No two pens will be the same.

1st June, 2015: Finally,
I have the new colours in the Conklin Crescent
Filler.The Conklin Pen Co. introduces the Mark
Twain Crescent Collection, an exact replica of the
original Conklin crescent filler used and promoted by
Mark Twain.In 1903, MARK TWAIN, the legendary American
author, began his relationship with The Conklin Pen Co,
the great American pen manufacturer. As a spokesman for
Conklin, Twain advertised and promoted the famous
Conklin Crescent FillerMark Twain expressed the virtues
of this unique self-filling fountain pen in a series of
advertisements in which he stated "I prefer it to ten
other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in
its own stomach, and I can not mislay even by art or
intention. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity
saver; it cannot roll off the desk."Made from a unique
cellulose ascetate material. Each pen features chrome
plated or rose gold plated accents and Mark Twain's
famous signature on the band.

Filler pens here.

Conklin All AMerican. The Yellowstone finish with its
yellow, brown and white resin, the bright sunburst
orange and the classic tortoiseshell.The Conklin All
American fountain pen is great for those who want a

finishes. The top of the cap is embellished with
