Start Bay Navagator Duo
Start Bay Navagator Duo
Like the Navigator this is an A5 size notebook cover but this model takes both side-bound notebooks and top-bound notepads.
Pelikan M205 Aquamarine
Pelikan hinted at this Special Edition with the introduction of its Edelstein Aquamarine Ink of the Year 2016. We now have the pens in stock. Unfortunately we have run out of the gift sets for the time being but hope to get some more soon.
Pelikan M400 Brown Tortoise
Coming soon: Pelikan M400 Brown Tortoise
Special Edition coming soon! The last time a brown tortoise M400 was in production was at the end of the 1990s so it's been a long time missing from the line-up. As well as the usual range of nib options there will be a new italic broad nib. Please e-mail to reserve.
Pelikan M205
Also coming soon: Pelikan 205 Blue Marbled
A brighter colour than the M200 that had been available until just a few years ago. This model will be part of the regular range. As with all Classic Series Pelikan fountain pens we offer it with either a stainless steel nib or an upgraded 14k gold nib. Please e-mail to reserve.
Important announcement:
We will be closed for a few days from 31st August. Anna is going into hospital for surgery and Martin will be caring for her after the procedure. We'll have announcements on the website and social media to provide updates.
Thank you in advance for your patience.
Edison Collier "Burnished Gold"
We annouced this new model in June and we received our first delivery at the beginning of this month.
Edison Pearlette "Lapis Lazuli Flake"
Like the new Collier, we have this new pen so it's now a stock item.
Lamy Lx
Lamy news
Regular visitors to our website and Facebook page will no doubt be aware that Lamy is celebrating 50 years this year. A number of new pens will be launched including the Lx range and a special edition scala. We hope to receive the first of these new models during September.

Lamy offers
We are currently running "back to school" offers on Safari fountain pens, Safari rollerball and ballpen sets and Safari ballpen and pencil sets. Other offers can be found on our Back to School and Special Offers page.
Top Tip:
Ever wondered about the little black object in the red cap of TWSBI Diamond series replacement nib units? It's actually a stopper that can be screwed into the end of the body of the pen so you can swap nibs even when your pen is full of ink!
Don't forget:
The London Writing Equipment Show is on Sunday 2nd October. Full details in our next newsletter.
