Summer competition
A big thank you to all who took part and congratulations to Liz from Cambridgeshire who was the lucky winner of a brand new Pelikan M205 Amethyst (see details of this new pen below).

London Writing Equipment Show 2015
This major annual event takes place from 10.30am on Sunday 4th October 2015 at the Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury, Coram St, London WC1N 1HT. This is a large international event that is well worth a visit where you can find pens from all eras, a plethora of spare parts and everything from budget pens to high end Limited Editions.
The nearest tube station is Russell Square although the hotel is only a short walk from King's Cross. There is a public car park under hotel (expensive, but not too bad for London).
As there is a limit to what we can take to the Show, so please ask beforehand if there is anything in particular you would like to see. As usual, we will be happy to take orders for collection at the Show to save on postage costs.



Diamine Shimmertastic inks
An exciting new range of 10 colours that Diamine has been a long time in development. These new fountain pen inks contain tiny particles that create a metallic shimmer to your writing. We are expecting delivery in early October and we expect demand to be very high so please e-mail us to pre-order your requirements.

Pelikan M205 Amethyst Special Edition
One of the nicest of Pelikan's translucent colours and a perfect match to the 2015 Amethyst ink of the year. We have plenty of pens in stock but this model will only be available for a limited period.

New Pelikan M805 Demonstrator
We now have the labelled version of this future classic. Currently available, like all Souveran fountain pens, with a free Pelikan leather pen case (while stocks last).

Kaweco Brass Sport
A heavy metal version of this popular pocket pen. It has an indestructible feel about it!

Kaweco Liliput
Smaller even than the Sport and beautifully machined from solid metal.

Schmidt converters
Often supplied as OEM components, these converters are superb value when bought "unbranded".



Free leather case with all Pelikan Souveran fountain pens

Free Iroshizuku ink with every Pilot Capless Trend retractable fountain pen.
