2014-10: October 2014

Firstly, in case you didn't already know, Conway Stewart ceased trading at the beginning of last month. The factory in Plymouth has closed and all machinery and remaining stock was sold at auction. It was very sad news but we are hopeful that someone will take over the brand and re-start production of these beautiful and exclusive pens. Unfortunately almost all Conway Stewart pens we had in stock are now sold but (at the time of writing) we do still have:
1x Marlborough Vintage lever-fill pen in black with gold trim
1x Marlborough Vintage lever-fill pen in black with silver trim
1x Marlbough Resin Graphite (cartridge/converter)
1x Capulet Pistachio
1x Blue Laurel LE 2013 edition, serial number 18
1x 58 Classic Black (cartridge/converter)
Please note that nib selection is limited as we don't have all point sizes left. Please enquire via e-mail if you are interested in any of these pens.

We still have plenty of Conway Stewart ink left in stock so get yours while it is still available.

New Products

TWSBI Diamond mini white & gold

TWSBI launched this special version of the Diamond mini in August this year. Although now temporarily out of production we still have a small number of pens left.

Finally, thank you to all those who visited us at the London Writing Equipment Show earlier this month. We hope you had an enjoyable day. Details of next year's event will be given in a future e-mail update as well as on our Twitter feed.
