London Writing Equipment Show 2011
Only a few days to go! We hope to see lots of you on Sunday 2nd October at at Kensington Town Hall. Tables P9 and P10 in the main hall (our usual location).
We can only take a selection of our product ranges to the show each year and it is always difficult to decide what to leave behind so if there is something specific you would like to see or buy please let us know.
Note that the Circle Line is out of action on Sunday. Instead, take the Central line to Notting Hill Gate and walk from there http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5093990 http://lwes.wesonline.org.uk/
New TWSBI Ink well to launch at the London Show
We have just received our first delivery of the brand new ink well from TWSBI.
It features an internal reservoir for easy filling even when the level in the ink well is low and has a unique feature also allows for the barrels of TWSBI Diamond series piston-filling pens (without nib unit fitted) to be filled by connecting directly to a filling tube. This method can also be used for filling standard size converters.
Available in 6 different colours at £22.79 each and will be available to order on-line from Monday October 3rd.
Pilot Capless LE 2011
Recently arrived is the new 2011 Limited Edition Pilot Capless in pink. Like previous LEs, this pen is packed in a fabulous colour-matched gift box and is limited to 2011 pieces.
