Quiver Pen Holder A5 Overview

Quiver is a company that makes some pretty unique leather pen holders that attach to your A5-size hard cover journals like the Rhodia Webnotebook and Moleskine. In this video I show the single and double holders, as well as the adapters that fit with them. Quiver Single Pen Holders: (1:30) Quiver Double Pen Holders: (4:24) Soft-Cover Adapters: (7:05) Quivers are some pretty unique pen holders that I first discovered a few years ago, actually. I couldn’t really tell you why I haven’t started carrying them before now other than to say our companies just never really linked up. But I’d [...]

TWSBI Diamond 50P Inkwell

 TWSBI has just released their Diamond 50P inkwell, and I've been getting a lot of questions about what makes it different from the Diamond 50 inkwell. I covered how to use the Diamond 50 in this video. In today's video I talk about the two, and show how to use the Diamond 50P. Here's what I cover: Unboxing the TWSBI Diamond 50P (0:45) Showing the 5 bottle colors (1:40) Comparing the plastic 50P cap to the aluminum 50 cap (2:10 and 6:35) Using the Diamond 50P inkwell to fill a TWSBI Mini (or 530/540/580) (2:40) Using the Diamond 50P [...]

TWSBI Vac-20 Inkwells

 You may have recently seen my video on the TWSBI Diamond 50, and I wanted to follow that up with a video on the recently released Vac-20 inkwell. It's different than the Diamond 50, and I cover how in the video. TWSBI Vac-20 inkwells, available in blue, orange, black, red, and green. The Vac-20 is a bottle that's specifically designed to fit the TWSBI Vac-700, and nothing else (at least from the adapter). It fits onto the grip section of the pen and allows you to fill it to the max without getting ink all over the pen like [...]

TWSBI Mechanical Pencils

 I'm a fountain pen guy through and through, but I've been getting asked a lot of questions lately about the TWSBI mechanical pencils. TWSBI is a popular brand of fountain pen and I do like the design and functionality of their pens, so I thought "what the heck, I'll check out their pencils". I'm not a pencil aficionado (is there even a thing?), but here's a video of me sharing my impression. There are two different pencils, fixed and retractable tip. The difference is that one has a fixed lead guide that sticks out of the pen (more stable/accurate), [...]

Pilot Con-50 Converter Improvement

Pilot Con-50 converters, new version on top with metal piece, old version on bottom A couple of weeks ago, we noticed some little metal pieces inside the Pilot Con-50 converters that were coming in. The Con-50 is a converter used for most Pilot and Namiki pens, and is notorious for 'holding' ink up in the body, which causes a break in ink flow. No doubt, this new metal piece coming in the converters is an effort to cut down on this. I personally never really had much of a problem with my ink flow with the 'old' converter, but I [...]

Rebekah Goldman Guest Post- Wax Seal Struggles

My sister-in-law, Rebekah Goldman, has had fine writing thrust upon her as a lifestyle simply by being related to me ;) No seriously though, she's a photographer who wanted to include classy, handwritten notes to her clients. She told me about some of her struggles getting started with wax seals, and it was perfect to share with all of you. Many of you know I'm seriously afflicted with the wax seal addiction, having done some 1,300+ seals by now (since I started in April). Rebekah brings to light some of the 'struggles' a wax seal newbie can face! All of [...]

Sample Vials: From Good to Awesome!

There's nothing like taking a good thing and making it better. The sample vials I've been using for ink samples at GouletPens.com and the Ink Drop were always good. They're light, durable, have a wide mouth to fit most pens into, and best of all they're the same vials that Fountain Pen Network members have been using for years so the writing community is very familiar with them. So why change? If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? Even though the old vials were good, I was told about some that were even better. I called the company, got [...]
