In the case of one of our all-time favorite Pen Addict products, what is dead may never die. Yes, the Scribble Pen is … back? It’s something, that’s for sure.
Brad is joined this week by Urban Hafner, the developer of Fountain Pen Companion. FPC is an essential site for fountain pen and ink fanatics, and the answer to all of your “How do I track all of this stuff?” questions. Thank you Urban for sharing your story!
How important is color density in your gel ink pens? Zebra would like you to find out. Brad would like Pentel to find out who besmirched the legacy of Pikachu on their latest EnerGel, and then helps you decide on what to look for in your next planner.
What’s more fun than talking about companies who recycle and reuse old products as new again? We pile on #MONTBLANCGATE this week, before digging into to Brad’s experience with the PLOTTER notebook system
You want thoughts about stationery? Brad has them. He breaks down the Uni Alpha Gel Switch and the TWSBI Swipe, and ends up with more questions than answers. At least he has 18 new bottles of ink to distract him.
What is going on with Jowo? What is Kaweco planning? What is Pilot recalling? Brad and Myke attempt to break it all down, along with discussing a good pen, and an ink you should never put in a fountain pen.
Myke is back, and allows Brad to regale him with tales of stationary wonder. Brad has new pens (shocker,) new ideas (shocker,) and new writers (shocker!!!) Tune in for all of this stationary goodness.
Brad upgraded this week and connected with Audrey Matteson, Franklin-Christoph’s one and only Nib Doctor. They thoroughly consider test driving the latest nail polish, and have a bonanza discussing all of the analog(ue) tools you know and love.
We should rename this podcast to Brad Buys Pens, because that is all he has done this summer. We discuss his latest acquisitions, a Pilot Pokemon collab, and an awesome community-focused Leonardo pen about to launch.
The amount of pens being dropped in this community is too darn high! What can be done about that? Brad and Myke discuss that, plus large capacity converters, ultra-fine tipped ballpoints, and Brad’s love of Ultem.
