New Pelikan M805 Demonstrator
Pelikan has announced 2 versions of this exciting new clear demonstrator: a plain version and another version with labels showing the internal parts. Both these pens are sure to become future collectibles We have a good stock of the plain version and the version with labels is coming very soon.
Lamy Safari and Al-Star special editions
Those of you who are familiar with Lamy will already know that the company produces "annual" colours for many of its models and this year is no exception.
First was the Al-Star "Copper Orange" in February and Lamy sold out of this pen in record time! Luckily we saw this coming and made sure we ordered plenty of stock.
Next was the Safari "Neon Lime" which continues the range of vivid colours that Lamy started in 2013. Lamy has already announced that this pen is also sold out but again we have plenty of pens in stock.
Special Lamy T10 cartridges have also bee produced to match these pens.
(sorry, these new colours are not available as bottled inks)
Lamy has also added 2 colours to the logo range: nut brown and cliff grey. These hard paint finishes make the logo a smooth and tactile pen that is perfect for those writers who prefer something a bit slimmer. As with all Lamy pens we stock we offer the full range of nib options.
TWSBI Diamond 580 Al Purple
Following from the success of the Diamond 580 AL Orange (now sold out), TWSBI has recently launched a new version in purple.
De Atramentis Document inks - new colours
We recently received turquoise and yellow which brings this range of permanent inks to 9 colours. De Atramentis recently announced the addition of grey and violet and these colours will be with us very soon.
Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year 2015 - Amethyst
This lovely purple colour is available as both bottled ink and long standard cartridges.
Faber Castell Ambition "Aqua"
This is a new addition to the Ambition range and features a turquoise barrel with guilloche pattern.
Pilot Capless LE 2015
Although not available until September, we have seen a photo and it's stunning! We're sorry we can't release any details yet but if anyone is interested we can reserve a pen for you.
