A Pilot Capless! Hooray!

I’ve had the Pilot Capless (Vanishing Point) on my wishlist for the longest time. From the time I started collecting pens, actually. They were just really so inaccessible for people who aren’t used to shopping online. I was determined to add this to my collection next year, though. Imagine my surprise when a good friend of mine gifted me with one today! She actually brought a box of three different colors of Capless pens and one Decimo in glossy black and rhodium trim. I picked the one with the unique color. It seems to be teal or blue-green, with gold trim, and (oh joy!) medium nibs.

The best part of this? It came with the sweetest letter. I read the letter several times, actually. <3

This pen is just amazing. At first I thought the clip would get in the way of writing but it really doesn’t. I wrote on my Elias notebook with it, and oooohhhh, it gives such a pleasurable writing experience. It’s like writing on butter. This is one seriously smooth nib. I’m gonna use this pen for a bit before I write my review. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ooooh. Trippy.
Ooooh. Trippy.

Bexley BX802 in Cracked Ice

This pen came through the courier today. I’ve been wanting to have my own pen in a cracked ice design and this one’s pretty good-looking. It’s also out of production, so I’m pretty happy to add it to my collection. I asked the local Bexley distributor (also a pen friend) to include a 1.1mm italic stub nib on it instead of the standard medium and he agreed. Review coming soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

My First Parker Vacumatic

I’ve been keeping an eye out for a Parker Vacumatic for quite some time now. Tonight, I traded in my Kaweco ALSport for it. I wasn’t using the Kaweco much, anyway. I’ve decided to focus my collection on full-length or demi-sized pens, specifically Parkers. I love this pen. I think the Parker 51 is still the smoother writer, but this pen is beautiful and the lines it writes have more character. Review coming up soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

FPN-P South Pen Meet (Cafe Mary Grace – SM Southmall)

I attended my first pen meet today and it was a blast! I’m really happy that the FP community in the Philippines is made up of warm people who are generous and friendly. It’s hard to be shy around them, they’re so warm and friendly, and theyย really love their pens. ๐Ÿ™‚ It feels so great to be around people whose eyes don’t glaze over when talking about pen history, nibs, etc. I also got to try out a lot of pens today. I’m so happy.

I went home with a few new ink bottles, my very first Esterbrook and a black Sheaffer VFM that one of the members gave away as souvenirs for the South meet. It was pretty awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a little beauty. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m looking forward to reviewing it soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

New Pen: Parker 25, Broad

IMG_9849

I traded off one of my Kaweco Sport pens for this Parker 25 with a broad nib. Parker pens are pretty interesting for me, and I’m happy that I got one in exchange for a pen that hardly ever gets any use. I prefer the heavier Kaweco ALSport to the plastic Sport or Classic pens. At least now that I’ve traded it, I have another pen to add to my growing Parker pen collection.

Review coming soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
