Our New Look

We’ve got exciting news to share today – has a new look!

Warm & Fuzzy

Can a liquid be warm and fuzzy?

Warm, sure. But fuzzy?

If the new Pelikan Edelstein 2017 Ink of the Year stays true to the photos, Smoky Quartz could be just that. It looks like a rich soft brown that you’d want to wrap yourself in on the couch with a cup of cocoa. We’ll get our own images up one the first bottles arrive in March.

It is a limited edition color so if you think Smoky Quartz will work into your rotation you might want more than one bottle!

New Sailor Barcarolle Fountain Pens Arriving In Late January

If you have always loved Sailor's 1911 Midsize and Pro Gear Slim series pens, but would prefer a writing instrument with just a little more heft, the new Barcarolle model may be the pen for you. Utilizing the same smooth-writing 14k solid gold nibs as the Midsize and Pro Gear Slim pens, but with a metal cap and barrel, these pens add some playful gravitas to Sailor's offerings.

Danitrio Pens Now Available

Danitrio pens are a unique fusion of East and West - the hand-turned bodies of these ebonite urushi pens are individually hand-finished in Japan, while the 18k solid gold nibs are specially crafted for this California-based company by German nib manufacturer Bock. Danitrio founder Bernard Lyn still guides the company, choosing pens and finishes with a collector's eye and an artist's heart.

Find In-Stock Nakayas - Easier Than Ever Before!

When we launched our newly revamped web site a little less than a month ago, we knew that one feature longtime visitors were going to miss was the old Nakaya Availability Chart, which was updated once a week to let customers know which of these hand-turned, hand-finished ebonite urushi pens were currently in stock.
