Just a pre-warning that stocks of this ink range are getting very low now. We have had an exclusive arrangement with Diamine, the ink's manufacturer, to stock what was remaing after Conway Stewart closed for business.

Lamy scala
Lamy scala "glacier" and Lx
Unfortunately these new pens have been delayed slightly so won't be with us until next month. If you are interested, please e-mail to reserve.
Lamy Lx
Lamy offers
All Lamy Safari Dark Lilac pens are reduced by 10%. This includes the Back to School fountain pen bundle.
Rhodia offers
All Rhodia WebNoteBooks ("Webbies") (A4, A5 and A6) and Rhodiarama notebooks (19x25cm and A5)) are currently on special offer.
Top Tip:
Tired of waiting for ink to flow to the nib from a new cartridge? Just dip the nib in some water and this will wet the feed channels and get the flow started. Soak the water away on a tissue and ink will very soon come flowing to the tip of the nib.
LWES 2016
The London Writing Equipment Show is on Sunday 2nd October at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, Coram St, London WC1N 1HT. Early Bird visitor entry is from 9.30am and general public entry from 10.30am. The nearest Tube station is Russel Square but it is only a short walk from King's Cross main-line station.
Unfortunately we will not be able to attend this year because Martin has injured his shoulder. We hope you have a good day out and manage to pick up some bargains!
