Here at Goulet Pens, we just love November! Not only is it the month in which the world celebrates Fountain Pen Day and Thanksgiving here in the US, it’s the month our company was founded in and the month we celebrate Thanksgiveaway.

What’s Thanksgiveaway? It’s our version of Thanksgiving, where we show how thankful we are for you. Without our incredible customers, we couldn’t do what we love each and every day. We’re expressing our gratitude by hosting a seriously epic giveaway!

This year we’re doing things a bit differently. Instead of one grand prize gift, we’re giving away seven incredible fountain pens, one for each year we’ve been in business. Some are high ticket items, some are past limited editions that are no longer available, while others are just all-around company favorites. In addition to all that greatness, there will be four runner-up prize pens. That’s 11 chances to win a fantastic fountain pen!

1. Pelikan M400 Tortoiseshell-Brown Special Edition Set

With a total value of almost $1000, you’ll win not one, but three amazing Pelikan M400 Tortoiseshell-Brown pens. This pen features a body with gorgeous brown stripes with subtle orange highlights. You’ll receive a fountain pen with a medium nib, a rollerball, and a ballpoint in an incredible matching set.


Dark and mysterious, the Visconti Homo Sapiens Dark Age fountain pen is impressive in its subtle details. With a black palladium nib and matching black clip, it flies under the radar while still wowing you with its body entirely made of basaltic lava all sourced from Italy. The winner of this prize will receive a full-sized fountain pen with a fine nib.

3. Montegrappa Fortuna Copper Mule

This a pen you can drink to! Beautiful polished copper was used to create the Montegrappa Fortuna Copper Mule fountain pen. Packaged with a gorgeous copper mug, this steel-nibbed pen will have you writing up a storm. This prize pen comes with a medium nib.

4. Pilot Vanishing Point Twilight

The 2015 Limited Edition Pilot Vanishing Point Twilight dazzled the fountain pen community with its unique ombre body. We sold out of this beauty in record time, but managed to hold on to this one for this very purpose. It’s brand new, never been used, and ready to make one lucky fountain pen fan’s dreams come true. It comes with a medium nib.

5. Lamy 2000 Makrolon

A fountain pen classic, the Lamy 2000 Makrolon is beloved by the fountain pen community for its sleek style and smooth-writing 14kt gold nib. The winner of this beauty will receive a Lamy 2000 with a fine nib.

6. Edison Nouveau Premiere Water Lily

Our Spring 2016 Edison Nouveau Premiere in Water Lily was one of our most popular seasonal editions, ever. Affectionately dubbed the “Unicorn Barf” pen, it was only offered for a limited time. You can not find this pen new anywhere, but you could win it in this year’s Thanskgiveaway. It will come with a fine steel nib.

7. Conklin Nighthawk

A Goulet exclusive, the Conklin Nighthawk flies under the radar with its black body and nib. Made in Italy out of carbon fiber, this pen is incredibly lightweight. It’s outfitted with a black Goulet steel nib so you are guaranteed a smooth-writing experience. The winner will receive a fine nib.

Runner-up prizes: 4 Monteverde Invincia Full Blue Anodized fountain pen with a bottle of Montegrappa Blue ink and Copper Mug

A Goulet exclusive, the Monteverde Invincia Full Blue Anodized fountain pen features an entirely aluminum body of gorgeous sky blue, with black trim and a black fine steel nib. We’ve paired it with a bottle of Montegrappa Blue ink and a gorgeous Montegrappa Copper Mug.
