New Arrivals, and Two Giveaways: Platinum Classic Maki-e and J. Herbin 1670 Caroube de Chypre

Platinum Classic Maki-e fountain pen box

Why is that photo so gigantic? Because we have gigantic news. A giveaway from Pen Chalet.

Also, I like the box a lot. It’s a simple cardboard box, but attractive. This box does a lot with a little.

Inside the box, from the very nice people at Pen Chalet, is a fountain pen for Fountain Pen Follies readers.

  1. That pen is gorgeous. I bet it is a great little writer. I have Emerald of Chivor and adore it, especially on Tomoe River paper. I bet the Caroube de Chypre is another winner too. What a great combo. When I saw you were having these in a giveaway, my eyes nearly jumped out of my head. LOL. (that’s a GOOD THING)

  2. That pen is a little piece of art! I can’t stop to adore the Maki-e pens, though I don’t have one (yet?). I’ll certainly get one, some day.
    While I’ve been curious about the glittery inks, I haven’t yet dared to use them. I got mostly piston fillers, and cleaning them from the residues might get messy. So as of now, I’m resisting 🙂

    1. I’ve used the shimmer inks in my Pelikans, and that’s worked well, because you can unscrew the nib. Some of the golden are harder to clean, than others, of course, but I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s based on the color of the underlying ink, not the particles.

      The two I think I find hardest to clean are J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite — which is fierce — and the purple Diamine Shimmer ink.

      I really do like the pen! Great nib.
