December is my “stationery month.” Every year at the beginning of December I will look for ink that has Christmas vibe.
Then, I will use that ink do address and write Christmas cards. I send them to family, friends, and penpals. It makes me happy.
This year I picked Platinum Forest Black. Continue reading “Platinum Forest Black Ink review – Perfect Christmas Ink”

If I were to choose the most overrated pen, it would probably be something from Lamy. Continue reading “I hate LAMY AL-star”
I avoid overpriced limited editions of all things like a plague, but when I saw this box of Platinum Cool, I had to buy it. Continue reading “Platinum Cool review”
If I could choose only 1 ink to stay with me forever, it would be Platinum Blue-Black. Not because it’s special but because it’s one of the best inks for everyday use. It just gets the job done. Plus, it’s truly waterproof. Continue reading “Platinum Blue-Black Ink Review”
There are so many reviews of Zebra Sarasa, that it’s hard to add anything new. It’s a great pen with one of the most well-behaved inks and I don’t remember anyone saying something bad about them. Just buy a one if you haven’t yet. That’s all I can say. Continue reading “Zebra Sarasa Clip: a review”
The world of fountain pens is amazing and Pilot Custom 92 with TWSBI 580AL are great examples of how pens can be so similar but also so different at the same time.

I will spoil the fun and tell you right away, I love them both, but if I were to choose only one I would go with the Custom 92. Continue reading “Pilot Custom 92 vs. TWSBI 580AL”
I love Midori, so when I saw this letter set I had to buy it. Pages and envelopes are made of fountain friendly paper. It’s a pleasure to write on both. I was especially suprisded with envelopes. It’s almost like having Tomoe river paper envelopes with all sheen benefits.
Sadly, I won’t share any writing samples. I bought this set especially for letters and I won’t waste even one page 🙂 Continue reading “Midori letter set”
If you look at the pen as a tool, then you don’t need anything more than the Platinum Preppy. It’s cheap, it writes smoothly and you can even turn it into an eyedropper. For a long time, I have thought if there is a way to make a pen as good and as cheap as Preppy. Turns out it’s possible. Continue reading “Platinum Riviere (ptr-200) – the best cheap pen”
