SFPL Pen Meet, June 2015

IMAG2727

Time flies and we have had another pen meet yesterday. Even during the pen meet, time flew and in the blink of an eye, it was time to go home. Good times pass really quickly but memories are well-kept in photographs: We had Fook Hing Trading Co sponsor our event, and they provided us with Franklin Christoph products. What wonderful products they are! So far, I have been impressed with Franklin Christoph products especially the Penvelope 6 that I’ve made my…

Lamy Logo Stainless Steel Fountain Pen

The Lamy Logo fountain pen is yet another Bauhaus, industrial-looking pen. The first time I saw it, I thought it reminded me of one of my first fountain pens, the steel Parker Vector. Thanks to Pen Chalet‘s sponsorship, I got a chance to touch and feel this pen, but all opinions in this piece are my own and not influenced by Pen Chalet or anyone else. I have been hoping to get the brushed steel Lamy Logo, but instead received…

Caran-dache-goat-trim2

I spotted this beauty of a pen the other day and decided to set up a #pendelight article on it. This is the Caran d’Ache Year of the Goat Limited Edition fountain pen, which I should have talked about during the Chinese New Year, but did not get a chance to. The pen is designed for the Year of the Goat, which is the 7th animal in the Chinese zodiac sign, and also the sign representing this year. Those of…

Two Cute Fountain Pens (~$3 and below)

Snow-White-Twin-Stars-FP

Warning: Many photos in this post! Sometimes we all get a little tired of seeing beautiful, sleek, serious, high-end fountain pens, and it’s about time we explore the lower end, cutesy fountain pens, just for fun. Thanks to two members of the SFPL group, I have in my possession two cute fountain pens which are clearly very suitable for children (or adults who like cute stuff, like me sometimes). In terms of pricing, both pens cost $3 (SGD) or less,…
