Articles I’ve read:
Hypercolors 41Nb (Niobium) (by Stalówka) ✑ Pretty ink from a brand I’ve not heard of! Hopefully I get an opportunity to try them out one day!
Pilot Vanishing Point Moonlight LE (2018) (Flex & Other Follies) ✑ An interesting choice of colour for an LE.
Jacque Herbin 1798: Kyanite du Nepal Ink Review (Ed Jelly) ✑ I can’t say this ink does much for me (team EoC here) but this is a good review to check out of it!
Review: Montegrappa Extra Custom Fountain Pen (The Pencilcase Blog) ✑ I’m a simple person; I see stacked celluloid, I covet.
Pen Review: PenBBS 456 (Vacuum-Filler) Fountain Pen (The Gentleman Stationer) ✑ I’ve tried several PenBBS lately and I’ve loved everyone. The nibs have been smooth, and write out of the box; and the machined acrylic has been on point. Cheap too!
