Chosen for the first quartet of heroes are Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. The nemeses of Batman comprise the first four villains: The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler.

Montegrappa Piacere 21st January, 2015: A new slimline pen from Montegrappa - the Piacere. Piacere – Italian for “Pleasure”!

The slim Piacere has been created to suit men and women who prefer a smaller pen, making it the ideal choice for diaries, especially mini versions.

Montegrappa Fortuna 20th January, 2015: Montegrappa have brought out some new colours for the Fortuna range for 2015. The Fortuna is now available in white with rose gold trim, white with ruthenium trim, blue with rose gold trim, blue with palladium trim, and the very striking Fortuna Tricolore. Fortuna was the goddess of fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans. Fortuna's identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to Virtus, or strength of character. Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome. At Montegrappa, we strongly believe that luck is indubitably linked to virtue, whilst education is the foundation onto which an individual develops and nurtures his or her innate talents. We also believe that hand writing is an essential element of the education process and an indespensable function, even in today's hurried, digitised society. For this reason we have created our new Fortuna collection, with an eye to those who still indulge in the pleasure of writing. It is our wish that these pens will engender the good luck they deserve.

Manu Propria 15th January, 2015: It is with great pleasure that I announce that I will henceforth be selling the beautiful made to order MAnu Propria range of ebonite urushi lacquered pens. The MANU PROPRIA Fountain Pen brand was started in December 2013, following the tradition of Japanese fountain pens using traditional ebonite material and urushi lacquer. According to the term MANU PROPRIA „with my own hands“, all fountain pens are completely hand made in Bern, Switzerland. The barrel, cap and sections are made from Japanese Ebonite and all fountain pens are finished with various urushi lacquer techniques.
Urushi is a precious and durable natural material. Urushi is very robust. An urushi-coated bowl can withstand the extreme temperatures of being used for hot soup every day. Its chemical resistance is also so high that even aqua regalis (nitrohydrochloric acid) which solutes gold cannot damage it. Urushi has a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale, which is the same as that of glass. Lacquerware pieces have been found that date back 7000 years. The fact that they survived shows how durable urushi is.
MANU PROPRIA fountain pens are not something you can simply walk into a shop everywhere and buy. They are hand-turned and hand lacquered, manufactured one piece after the other. The nibs used, are 18 kt (750) gold made in Germany.
MANU PROPRIA pens are expertly hand-turned with a manually-operated lathe. Handling a MANU PROPRIA fountain pen will make you deeply appreciative of the workmanship that goes into crafting each pen, the attention to detail that I bring to my pens.
Each pen comes with a secret maki-e signature, tastefully and subtly placed on the barrel end.
MANU PROPRIA fountain pens will keep their value and are very hard to find on the secondary market. You will particularly enjoy the fact that you are using a pen that very few people will recognise or even own.
MANU PROPRIA fountain pens are not the most expensive out there, but are valuable because of their relative scarcity and the knowledge and craftsmanship that goes into making each pen.

Sailor Precious Woods Kabazaiku Wild Cherry Bark 12th January, 2015: A new addition to the Sailor Precious Woods line-up: the Kabazaiku or Wild Cherry Bark fountain pen.Kabazaiku - Cherry Bark woodworking is a traditional Japanese art work that flourished in Kakunodate in the Akit prefecture of Japan. The technique was used 250 years ago by Samurai warriors to decorate their weapons and other posessions. The same uncompromising spirit of quality and workmanship has been handed down the generations to the producer of the "Kabazaiku" Cherry Bark - Denshiro Shouten. Each pen shows a unique pattern of wild cherry bark and gives a warm, natural feeling in the hand.
