If you’re like me, you probably love online shopping on places like Amazon.com. Have you ever wondered which fountain pens are the bestselling fountain pens on Amazon? Here I put together a list of the top 10, and I’m happy to know that I have already got reviews of some of them! Top 10 bestselling fountain pens on Amazon 10. Lamy AL-Star I have the review of the AL-Star right here, and it’s being compared with the Lamy Vista fountain pen, which is in a similar family as the Lamy Safari and the Lamy Vista. Often a little more expensive than the Lamy Safari, I suppose it’s why it ranks 10th this time. Personally, I like how the aluminium body feels, but probably due to the price, it seems that this is a less preferred option than the Safari. 9. Jinhao X450 I haven’t seen this pen before, but it looks just like a classic cigar-type fountain pen. I am guessing that people like this pen because it looks a little bit like a Mont Blanc or a Sailor pen (but I could be wrong). It seems to be a nice pen, and Jinhaos are rather popular for being well-built […]
I literally rubbed my palms in glee as I received an invitation to the Sheaffer Centennial celebrations in Singapore. Well actually, I saw the event being mentioned on the Singapore Fountain Pen Lovers Facebook group, so I quickly contact the organizer to send me an invitation to this event. How could I miss it! And so, I happily went down after work on 22 May to attend the Centennial. Oh, and by the way, the event organizer also invited me to make a speech as a pen collector/blogger at the event as well. What an honour! It was my first public speech on fountain pens so naturally I was nervous. The palms I was rubbing in glee earlier were now clammy. Fortunately, it was a fine evening and the place I was going to is pretty (MICA building near the river). After checking in and getting a “Media” tag for myself, I went eagerly around the exhibits to snap shots of them. You know, the only thing I regret from this event is that I don’t have a proper camera. I was only equipped with my smartphone, so the quality of the pictures taken is… hmm… not ideal. The […]
Shamefully I did not curb my addiction to acquire more writing instruments, and exactly one week after my last purchases, I bought a new one, this time a SET. My excuse: I took the Parker Urban pen that Mum had bought for me back to Bugis Junction BHG to get my name engraved in gold, and while waiting I browsed. There are three brands sold there. It’s at the children’s level, near the notebooks and photo frames area. The little region for pens carries Parker, Waterman and Sheaffer ones. While waiting for the engraving to be done, I subconsciously (okay, I mean VERY consciously) walked to the Sheaffer section and browsed. The lady happened to be on her tea break and the other lady who did the engraving for me only represents Parker, and she told me that the Sheaffer girl would be back in about 15 minutes. I thought I couldn’t wait, so after getting my pen done I started going off. But before I could, the Sheaffer lady came back. I went to ask about inks and while choosing the colour I wanted from a display case, I caught sight of this: I’m really sorry I took […]
