New Products


Sailor Four Seasons Ink

This is a re-issue of some of the "Seasons" colours from a few years ago but now as a regular (not limited) range. Demand has been very high so some colours are sold out until around September so get yours while you still can.

This new range will replace the Jentle Ink 2011 colours which are now only available while stocks last.


TWSBI Diamond 580 RB and Diamond 580 AL

These are new versions of the standard all-transparent Diamond 580 and are additions to the range. We have these in stock and all nib size are available.
580 RB:
580 AL:


Pelikan Traditional Series M200 Cognac

A new Special Edition version of the classic M200 in translucent material. Three nib versions are available: the standard nib as per the other Traditional Series pens, a new steel italic nib and the 14k gold nib from the M400.


Pelikan Maki-e Seaside Fountain Pen

Pelikan launched this Limited Edition hand decorated maki-e, based on the flagship M1000, earlier this year and only 88 pieces are available worldwide with only 5 coming to the UK. We were delighted to be able to secure one of the pens.


Sailor ProColour Fountain Pen Stardust

This new addition is a stunning deep blue with metallic flecks.


Changes to Conway Stewart model ranges

Conway Stewart has slimmed its model range but also revived the classic 100 Series model in 3 colours.

There are also new colours for the Model 58 but we still have one each of the blue and green pens with black cap from the original re-launch last year.


Private Reserve ink

Private Reserve ink is now available in a new 60ml bottle that offers better value than before. We still have some of the previous 50ml bottles left and we have reduced the the price so it is the same per ml as the new range.


Pelikan Classic Series P200/P205

A cartridge version of the popular Traditional Series M200 and M205. The prefect accompaniment to the recently launched Pelikan Edelstein cartridges.


Herbin rollerball

Yes, we know it's not a fountain pen but it does take standard size fountain pen ink cartridges! Why not give it as a gift to wean your friends and family onto the joys of coloured inks?
