It’s Friday and I’m yet to post an article or review. Thing is I’ve been rather busy recently, though much related to another hobby of mine, and have so far driven over 600 miles this week (which in the UK is a long way, yes I know in Australia that can be just visiting your neighbour …). Net result is I’ve been struggling for free time.

Guess I’m giving excuses, but with two pens I picked up at the last London Pen Show still to review I hopefully will be covering one of those next week. In the meantime I have made a decision over inks. I quite enjoyed doing the big comparison and so may do others in the future. I’m asking round for samples so I can have near complete sets to test and review. I’ve also decided I will trickle out actual individual reviews, the first will be today, but from next week on it will probably be most Wednesdays. At present I just have the ScriBo inks to cover (so far 9 out of the 13 have been drafted) but in time other brands will be included so please do not expect 13 ScriBo inks in a row.

For reference, if you are in the UK and would be willing to swap samples with me, I am presently after (and know I have little chance for the first 3) (updated 28/4/22 with a number removed as now sourced):

  • Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline (2012)
  • Pelikan Edelstein Amber (2013)
  • Pelikan Edelstein Amethyst (2015)
  • Pelikan Edelstein Golden Beryl (2021)
  • Pelikan Edelstein Apatite (2022) (if it is already out)
