The Weekly Wrap Up: October 24th

Scriptus is one week away and I hope that I'll get to see some of you there. Liz from Wonder Pens interviewed the show founder in this blog post. It is worth the time to read.

The Pilot Prera, one of my favourite entry level pens, was reviewed by both Pete Denison and Matt Armstrong this week. The Prera is the perfect pen for your shirt pocket and its snap cap design means that you will have an easy time using it to jot down short notes or cross things off of your To Do list. I give it a thumbs up and it is my favourite steel nibbed Pilot pen. Pro tip, buy it from Japan and save 50%.

Goldspot Pens is doing a series of blog posts about selling vintage pens and has a lot of good advice for you. Here is What is My Pen Worth? Part 2 - Evaluating Condition.

Dr Jonathon Deans of Fountain Pen Economics wrote a blog post entitled Transaction costs. I had never considered this before but it rings very true. 

The PR machine for the Karas Kustums EDK pen was turned on this week and we have reviews from both The Clicky Post and The Well Appointed Desk. I fully expect Brad and Myke to be discussing this pen on Monday since that is the day that orders open on Massdrop.

Susan Pigott reviews the Danitrio Sho-Hakkaku Ki-Dame Tamenuri for The Pen Addict. This pen is quite the looker!

Finally, even though it really isn't stationery related, you should go and read Caleb Adventures in the Halls. It will make you feel good.

And Now For Something Completely Different

New York City has over 6,000 miles of streets across five boroughs. William Helmreich and Matt Green plan to walk every last block.
