Have you ever read about a new pen and thought that it was interesting. A friend then buys the pen and looking at it in real life you think “that’s nice”. Trying it you decide it writes well and you start to think ‘if I could find it in this finish ….’. Finally, wandering round a pen show, you see the version you want at a nice, hard to ignore price? Well this happened to me with the Taccia Covenant, which I picked one up at the Spring London Pen Show.
