Four Seasons by Sailor. From left to right they are Camellia in Snow, Spring Sky, Full Autumn Moon and Summer Leaves. If you look closely, some of them have shiny finish that glitters under light. We’ve been waiting for them to arrive, and it took about 7 months for Sailor to have four of them together at the same time and ship to us. The pens are really pretty, and the 7 months wait is definitely adding to our excitement 😂😂. Come check them out in person next time you are here!

We love demonstrator and brass at Yoseka : ) The Bronze Age series by Fine Writing International combines two our favorites. Recently we have more people asking about this series. Our take on this pen is really great. The pen has a comfortable size and a balanced weight. The brass adds a little more weight to the pen, and overall the pen is really comfortable to hold and easy to write. The ink capacity is a massive, so it's great for anyone who writes a lot.Here are some other reviews from the internet:Fine Writing Golden Amour Fountain Pen Review by ChrisGolden Armour:...
