The Fountain Pen Book by Tony Thomas is on sale today in the Amazon Kindle format. Tony runs The Frugal Fountain Pen blog and has more than a nodding acquaintance with our favorite writing tool.

You can purchase The Fountain Pen Book through my Amazon portal any day, but the sale price is only good through September 4, 2017.

Sunday Reads: Fountain Pens, Paper, and One Very Lucky Dog

Gobsmacked by the first link. Mother Nature is a very confused lady…

Japanese Flex Nibs

From left to right, Platinum #3776 Century Fine Flex (FF), Pilot Custom 742 Falcon (FA), and the Namiki Falcon Soft Fine (SF). None of the nibs are damaged but they do have little touches of ink here and there.

Sunday Reads: Pens, Hummingbirds, and Elephants

08/14/2017

Elephants and hummingbirds fascinate me so this past week offered some special treats. A watercolor demonstration has inspired me to try painting elephants. It’s way outside my skill level, but fun nevertheless…

Anyone else a sucker for demos?

If You’ve Ever Wanted To Try A Pilot Kaküno

07/28/2017

The Pilot Kaküno is one of my favorite bargain fountain pens. The white barrel with a soft blue cap is just right for a number of blue inks and looks rather sassy with orange. Pink and magenta are attractive colors for it, too. It writes well and is the most lightweight pen in my collection. That is all to the good.

While perusing Amazon for other items, I discovered the blue Kaküno has earned an Amazon’s Choice ranking and is currently listed at less that $10 for either the fine or the medium nib. I ordered mine with a three-pack of CON-50 converters though the pen comes with a cartridge that can be refilled via pipette or syringe.

Hey, what’s not to like about a nib that winks at you!
