The Weekly Wrap Up: January 23rd

Just a note, the blog celebrated it's anniversary this week. The first post was one year ago yesterday.

Fancy Pens

Pen Review: Newton Pens Sumpter
The Pen Habit
A bespoke pen that has special sentimental meaning to Matt.

Sailor Sapporo (Pro Gear Slim) Starburst Galaxy - Music Nib
The Clicky Post
I want to add a music nibbed pen to my collection, especially a three tinned one, but I know that the pen will be too broad to see much use. 

Pilot Custom Heritage 91
Goodwriterspens's Blog
This is the cartridge using version of the CH 92, a pen that I had in my collection for a short time. 

Disassembly Line: TWSBI Vac Mini
SBREBrown
I've been waiting for a disassembly video to come out about this pen. Too many seals and threaded connections. They can keep it.

Matching (XVII). Paidi Century
Crónicas Estilográficas
I've never heard of this pen let alone seen one, you have to admit that it looks pretty bad ass though.

Interesting Inks on Review

Ink Review: Waterman Tender Purple
The Well-Appointed Desk
I'm not a huge user of purple ink but I like Waterman so maybe I should pick some of this up.

Five Black Inks
The Gentleman Stationer
I have bottles of two of the five and a sample of another. Considering how standard it is, black doesn't get a whole lot of use in my collection.

Crying over blue: A review of Pilot Iroshizuku Asa-Gao ink
"fool with a pen…" 
Here was my take on the ink.
