For Sale: Pens & Inks

Well, it's taken a few years, but it is time to have a clean-out of pens and inks from my collection!

I haven't completed the list of pens for sale yet, but if there is anything which has ever caught your eye, it wouldn't be a bad idea to drop me a line and let me know.

Some pens I will *never* part with, but with other pens I might just need a nudge to let me know someone is interested. :)

Any questions, please email me, or send a PM via the FPN.

Danitrio Takumi Mt Fuji

A photo from this morning's session for my Danitrio Fuji-san:

Pen Reviews

I have been slack with my pen reviews these last months, so over the next few weeks I am focusing upon the following:

  • Danitrio Takumi 'Mt Fuji'
  • Various models from Guider Pen Works
  • Pelikan M640 Polar Lights
  • Pilot MYU M90 & MYU 701
The MYU review might be awhile away, actually... Pilot are having stock issues, so it may be some time yet before I see the pen. The Danitrio review is mostly complete, and a pen photo shoot has been planned... stay tuned. :)

October Update

No new acquisitions on the pen front at present... although Stan K. has just announced the date for his next Japanese pen sale, so things may change soon enough!

Otherwise, I'm patiently awaiting my third Nakaya Piccolo. Still not due in Australia for a few weeks yet, but I'm loving the anticipation... choosing an ink for it will be difficult, but I suspect I will turn to Sailor Red Brown. That ink will be a harmonious compliment to the colouring of the pen... :)

One thing I am still undecided on is what nib finish to choose for my Piccolo. Nakaya have suggested we wait until the pen is complete before deciding. It will be a tough choice: the sexy two-tone option, or the possibly sexier rose gold? Decisions, descions...
