17th November, 2014: I am very pleased to announce that I have now started stocking some Koh-I-Noor pencils and leads. KOH-I-NOOR HARDTMUTH a.s. is one of the world leaders in the production and distribution of first-rate stationery for artists, schools and offices. The company was founded by Josef Hardtmuth in 1790 in Vienna; however, the production of graphite leads was relocated to České Budějovice in 1848. In the course of time, the KOH-I-NOOR pencils managed to achieve great success at a number of world exhibitions. The products were awarded in many world exhibitions, to name a few, 1855 in New York, 1856, 1900 and 1925 in Paris, 1862 in London, 1882 in Vienna and 1905 in Milan. I have a small selection of pencils and lead refills but I will be expanding the selection in the near future, so if there is anything that you would like that is not listed please e-mail or call me and I can try to get it for you.
You can see more details on the Koh-I-Noor items that I have currently here.
17th November, 2014: Hot on the heels of the successful Liliput Brass pen, Kaweco have now released the Liliput fountain pen in copper and stainless steel finishes. Elegant Simplicity - more than just design and trend.
It was in 1910 that KAWECO first produced a Liliput fountain pen of ebonite. This new edition is made from a solid rod of copper or stainless steel as a fountain pen with a steel nib. Only 97mm long when closed, the Liliput is one of the smallest fountain pens that will accept standard ink cartridges. The finish of the copper pen will naturally age and patinate with use. The stainless steel pen has a slightly greater heft than the copper pen as you would expect.
You can see more details on the Kaweco Liliput range here.
13th November, 2014: A brand new model from Kaweco - the Elegance. A traditional octagonal pen in matte black anodised solid aluminium
with a bright chrome plated cap. The fountain pens has a steel nib in a choice of extra-fine, fine, medium, broad or extra-broad points. It can accept ink cartridges or a converter (sold separately). The cap screws on to the end of the barrel for secure posting. The ballpoint has a high quality twist mechanism. The pencil has 0.7mm leads. Beautiful and understated elegance.
The special features of the ELEGANCE series are the thin shaping, the balanced weight for a comfortable writing position and the adjusted nib size for enjoyable writing experience. The series is easy to handle.

A new edition of the Magna Classic pen in beautiful Jace acrylic resin with a run of only 50 pens worldwide! The Magna Classic is completely hand-made in England and bears the words ‘ONOTO THE PEN Made in England’ engraved on the barrel just like many of the vintage Onoto pens of the last century when such famous patrons like Winston Churchill, Natsume Soseki and Field Marshall Haig relied on their Onoto pens to communicate great words and wisdom.
Hold the Magna Classic and you’ll marvel at its perfect balance and lightness – but don’t be fooled by its weight! Even though only 27 grams, this is one of the most robust pens on the market today, thanks to its durable, high density acrylic composition.
Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at the smoothness of the exclusive Onoto #7 nib. You can select either a stainless steel version (as standard) or the 18 carat gold version for that extra-luxury feel. Both are available in broad, fine or medium widths to suit your handwriting style.
The Magna Classic is also available as a Rollerball or Fineliner with sterling silver fittings – Why not purchase a fountain pen and a rollerball as companion pens? This distinctive fountain pen in beautiful jade acrylic is complemented by sterling silver fittings and limited to an edition of 50 pens only. The Jade pen is only available with the engraving. It is not available with the plain smooth finish.
