This broadcast we were trying out a new broadcasting program for the first time, so I’d love to hear what you think! We have a new broadcasting program that we are trying out, and we were able to overlay images of some of the pens we talked about, which is a huge plus.

But where are we, why aren’t we cozy on our living room sofa like we normally are? Well, that’s a funny story. In a nutshell, I was messing with the light switches in our living room and wasn’t able to finish my project in time for the broadcast, so we had no light! We had to move over to our dining room and set up an impromptu broadcasting location. Because I didn’t have an ethernet cable long enough to reach there we had to broadcast over wifi, which wasn’t ideal, and some people experienced some skipping in the chat (which we talk about in the video). This won’t be an issue ongoing though. I’ve fixed the lighting in our living room and we’ll be back to normal next week 🙂

In this video, we talk about:

  • Lamy Studio Royal Red (10:50)
  • Pilot Metropolitan (18:05)
  • TWSBI Mini (22:05)
  • Edison Nouveau Encore LE, Flecked Tortoise (28:00)
  • Platignum pens (39:50)

Thanks everyone who joined us live, especially those with choppy video feeds, we’ll make sure we do everything we can to keep that from happening again. We’ll be back live next week on Wed. Dec. 5th at 9pm EST. See you there!

Write On,

    Looking at Platignum's website, it looks like their pens are very, very similar to the Monteverde Invincia line. They even have pens with the touchscreen stylus! Between the visual similarities and your mentioning that they take a Monteverde converter, I'm curious if the companies have a partnership of some kind? A quick Google didn't help me with the question. If Platignum really sells a ~$30 metal version of the ~$70 plastic Invincia Fusions, that sounds like a great deal.

  • There isn't any affiliation, they're not even operating on the same continent. And to clarify, the Invincia Fusions aren't plastic, they're lacquered metal. The pens have some similar design elements, but they use different size and brand nibs, and the converter does fit, but it's a standard international size (lots of pens use that size). Aside from the fact they have some similar colors and they're both metal, there isn't really that much similar between them. Perhaps I'll compare them when I do a Platignum video.
