The Blackwing 16.2 is a tribute to mathematician, writer and visionary Ada Lovelace. The pencil features a matte white finish and matte black ferrule inspired by the simple styling of early personal computers. It features our firm graphite formulation ideal for both writing and mathematics. The number 16.2 is a nod to the Analytical Engine’s storage capacity of 16.2 kB (0.00005% the storage of the average smartphone) and the backside of each pencil bears a binary pattern stamp of Ada’s initials AAL, the same initials she used to sign her work.

Montblanc came out with the Oscar Wilde collection in 1994 the third in Montblanc's Writers Series. Who knew this collection would remain so popular 26 years later, and with values of some of these pens increasing in value by a factor of 5 or more. This Oscar Wilde pen had a list price of $350.00 in 1994 and I'm sure we sold them them for 20% off. Oh to have a dozen of these beauties today.

Small collection pens came in on trade the other day, do you have pens to trade in for that extra special pen you have been eyeing? Trading in some of your pens that don't get much use is a great way to purge your collection and focus on the pens you really want. Also saves money as you aren't buying an new pen every time you see what you like. https://goo.gl/5FrsZw

Retro 51's Operation Kindness Dog rescue pen helps support this very organization with proceeds from every pen purchased a portion goes to this great organization. The second in the series these pens are made for a limited time and will then be retired to make way for the next collection.

Retro 51 Winter Wonderland is 2017's Christmas Popper pen. A limited edition tradition (I like that) that sells out every season. We have a limited number of pens on hand and will not be able to get more when we sell out. Ultra smooth Schmidt capless roller ball refill or Parker style ballpoint refills available.

Visconti's limited edition, Istos Aracnis (Greek for spider), pays tribute to the famous myth of Arachne's weaving competition with the goddess Athena and her subsequent transformation into a spider. The Limited Edition Istos Aracnis Spider Fountain Pen allows you to weave elaborate lines on your paper from day to day while demonstrating your excellent taste in fine writing instruments.

The Istos Aracnis Spider fountain pen is made from black Lucite with a sterling silver overlay in a captivating web pattern enameled in white to highlight its intricate design. The delicate web design follows through onto the cap that features the signature Visconti arc clip.

The Istos Aracnis Spider fountain pen offers a double reservoir power filler system and features the Visconti Dream Touch 23K palladium nib in fine point. The Spider pen is limited to 888 pieces worldwide and exclusively accepts bottle fills.

Organics Studio has the trifecta of wins for newest inks. While #Nitrogen blue has been around for some time, it took folks a while to see how amazing this blue really is. Not just blue but this ink has a sheen effect which brings out reds and purples. The next ink shown is #RalphWaldoEmerson an American lecturer, essayist, poet and author. Great to have this Ink named after him. The deep Twilight blue is the perfect mix of turquoise with dark blue and even black giving the writer an ink that's perfect for personal use but also not so bright that we cant use at work. And perhaps my favorite of the 3 is #HenryDavidThoreau, Transcendentalist, Essayist, Poet and Naturalist. Dark blue with hints of green a perfect match for for the natural wonders surrounding us in the word we live. I think I've found the perfect ink color for my journal as I recount my adventures on the #Appalachiantrail.

Visconti Opera Master Tobacco Brown was one of 3 great colors made. The Tobacco was by far the favorite of many. 888 pens made and all sold out very quickly. I was happy to find this one in a collection of Visconti pens I took in on consignment. The Opera Master design has been used several times since then.
