The Writing Desk meet-up at LWES 2017
London Writing Equipment Show 2017
After having a table at this busy Show every year since 2005 we have decided year to take a break and attend as regular visitors. If you would like to meet for a chat we will be in the lounge at the hotel from about 11.30am. You can let us know you are coming by registering with our Facebook event.
Top Tip: Ultrasonic cleaners
A conversation with a customer in our shop prompted us to write a little about these handy devices. If you own many fountain pens that are in regular use then it may be worth investing in on of these as it will maintain the performance of your pens and ultimately save time caring for them. Basically, an ultrasonic cleaner blasts high frequency sound waves through a water bath and the process is remakably effective at cleaning nibs and feeds without using chemicals or abrasives. Whilst professional grade ultrasonic cleaners cost as much as a high-end pen, it is possible to buy an entry-level model for around £50. Look for bargain offers from Maplin and Aldi.
