What's in a Name?

A lot, in the case of the Monteverde Impressa collection. This new series is impressive for its unique styling and stunning finishes. The squared cap top gently transitions to a rounded barrel. Impressa is covered with layers of iridescent blue with snazzy matching blue trim, a classic black lacquer with subdued gunmetal trim or a unique gray with red trim. Select your favorite combination for the perfect impression, or should we say Impressa?

The fountain pen’s stainless steel nib is available in fine, medium and  broad. It includes a threaded ink converter. The fountain pen fills with our Colorado Pen cartridges, the ballpoint accepts the common Parker-Style refill, and the rollerball accepts our common rollerball refill.

More Pencils Please!

Retro 1951 has vastly expanded their fine 1.15mm pencil offering. Pencil lovers know that these 1.15mm writers are enjoyable due in part to the strength of this thickness of graphite. Not too thick and never as breakable as typical graphite sizes.

Just as smooth as their rollerball cousins, these 1.15mm pencils operate with a simple twist of the top, plus, there is a huge eraser under the top for those who might make an occasional mistake.

The newest addition is the Dmitri. It joins best sellers like Crossword, Albert, Dr. Gray and Ice Blue. Add some extra erasers and refills and it makes a great gift for the crossword devotee.

Soothing Winter-Time Thoughts

This Honeycomb is a Limited Edition

Demonstrator fountain pens are transparent pens which were first made around the nineteen-twenties. The idea was to ‘demonstrate’ the filling mechanism of new and upcoming models. Recently, these kinds of pens became a must-have for any pen lover. They’re simply fascinating to possess and admire.

Today’s modern technology has made it easier to produce a clear pen, but a demonstrator in a precise honeycomb pattern was never attempted. Until Pineider envisioned it. Pineider has heavily invested in the Honeycomb Demonstrator, blending more

Designed by a Creative Master 

Dante del Vecchio, the designer behind almost every smash hit from Visconti, has joined Pineider to deliver pens which match the incomparable quality behind this storied Florentine brand. We can’t wait to see what Mr. del Vecchio does with the rich history and quality commitment of Pineider. It’s so rich a history from which to draw upon.

A sample of Pineider Note Cards and matching Envelopes are included in each box. It’s a clear connection to the 244 year Florentine history as a respected maker of stationery and fine office goods.

This unique resin based new material has a high percentage of marble dust. Marble dust was added for three reasons: By adding this material, Pineider has produced a harder compound to increase the brilliance of each color with a final high gloss polish, meticulously applied by hand. The result is incredible: The Lapis Blue or Malachite Green can be   mistaken for the real stones. The black resin, named ‘Uber Black’, is so deep that any other black pen just looks somewhat dark. Gemstones is truly a new inspiration for collectors.

The Elizabeth is a substantial instrument to wield. Not too heavy by any description but no lightweight for sure. The body is copper and the cap resin.

Only the Finest

As a young child, I listened to many adult conversations about "this new Ebonite". My father showed off his latest Kaywoodie smoking pipe with its shiny ebonite stem. The 5280 Ebonite collection is crafted from this "miracle" material, so my Dad would say. Hand-polishing creates the exquisite finish on both fountain pens and more
