10th March, 2014: I have now received preliminary stock of the Monteverde Engage Ink-Ball! The Engage offers the same benefits as Monteverde's Mega Ink Ball. The writing system provides the ink flow of a fountain pen with the convenience and control of a rollerball pen. The result is a rollerball pen that is capless forever!
Filling System: The retractable Engage draws ink just like a fountain pen . It can be filled with an ink bottle by using the ink converter supplied and drawing up ink through the ink-ball point or by using standard international sized ink cartridges with the included cartridge adapter.
Body: Made of hand made high quality carbon fibre. "Capless Forever" - your retractable Engage ink-ball can be left with the point in the writing position for extended periods of time with very little ink evaporation which usually results in drying out, a truly incredible benefit for fountain ink users! The new Monteverde Engage is a new advance in writing technology. This new system is different from anything else you have ever encountered. Get engaged now!

6th March, 2014: I have just received my first stock of the great new Monteverde Tool fountain pen. This new fountain pen lines up with the original ballpoint version of the Tool Pen. In this fast-paced world having the right tools at hand is crucial, and the monteverde One-Touch Tool pen brings nine tools in one premium quality writing instrument! The heavyweight hexagonal barrel houses our smooth-writing softroll ballpoint, or medium-nibbed fountain
pen at one end and an ultra-sensitive touchscreen stylus at the other. Under the stylus top are Phillips and flat-head scerwdrivers, whilst on the barrel are a built-in level, ruler and three different scale functions.

26th February, 2014: Last but not least, today's final new Montegrappa pen, and my favourite of the new additions, the new-look Espressione. Espressione, in perfect Italian spirit and style, combines minimalist design with fine materials: mother of pearl resin and rhodium plated trim. The all new Espressione features and octagonal shaped cap band designed so that the pen will not roll when placed on a tabletop. The band is finely engraved and enamelled
with Montegrappa's typical Greek fret. Featuring an imperssive array of brand new colours including the vibrant Cobalt Blue, the elegant "Testa di Moro" (Dark Brown), the classic Smoked Black and the evocative Anazon Green, Espressione is available in fountain pen, rollerball pen, twist action ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil versions.

26th February, 2014: Another very nicely designed new model - the Montegrappa Fortuna. Fortuna was the goddess of fortune, the personification of luck according to the ancient Romans. Fortuna's identity as the embodiment of chance events was closely tied to Virtus, or strength of character. Public officials who lacked this quality invited ill-fortune on both themselves and Rome. At Montegrappa, we strongly believe that luck is indubitably linked to virtue,
whilst education is the foundation onto which an individual develops and nurtures his or her innate talents. We also believe that hand writing is an essential element of the education process and an indespensable function, even in today's hurried, digitised society. For this reason we have created our new Fortuna collection, with an eye to those who still indulge in the pleasure of writing. It is our wish that these pens will engender the good luck they deserve. Fortuna is available as a fountain pen (cartridge/converter
fed), rollerball, twist action ballpoint pen and mechanical pencil. It is offered exclusively in black resin, made personal by accents in a choice if three different trim finishes; rhodium, rose gold, or ruthenium.

26th February, 2014: New for 2014 - the Montegrappa Ducale. The Ducale brand appeared for the first time in the 1930s to mark the high-end pens of the Elmo line. The name drew inspiration from the famouse Doge's Palace, one of the symbols of the city of Venice and a Venetioan Gothic masterpiece located in the monumental Piazza San Marco between the Piazetta and the pier. After eighty years, Montegrappa is proud to relaunch the glorious Ducale collection
with a choice of palladium or rose gold plated trim, or pearly Emperador brown resin available with rose gold plated trim. A generously sized pen, perfectly balanced, which is a joy to hold and a pleasure to write with.

24th February, 2014: Newly added to their standard range is the Lamy Safari in Pink. This pen was released as a special edition colour a couple of years ago, and proved very popular. Lamy have now re-released it as a standard colour for the Safari, and I have just received my first batch of stock from Lamy.

10th February, 2014: Conway Stewart is pleased to announce the latest limited edition colour in the popular Belliver model - Bracket Brown.
The Belliver Bracket Brown special edition is a dashing interpretation of the basic marbled brown colour crafted from hand made resin with deep reddish browns blend into a marbling of translucent tan with pearl highlights. The Bracket Brown makes an elegant statement and is further accented by gleaming black resin and solid 18 carat gold bands.
Limited to only 50 numbered fountain pens or roller balls, this special edition is crafted in our factory in Devon, England. The Bracket Brown is based on the popular Belliver model, ideal for the widest possible range of hand sizes and writing styles. Not so large as to be unwieldy in the hand, but still of a size to command instant attention, as well as to afford a comfortable grip. The gently tapering cap and barrel preserve the traditional classic flat top design, while imparting a graceful balance in the
hand. Offered as either a fountain pen or rollerball, the Belliver Bracket Brown is ready to serve the daily needs of the modern lover of fine writing instruments.
The Belliver model is balanced using a solid brass barrel liner to offer just enough weight for the pen to sit easily in the hand without becoming tiring during long periods of writing. The cap is lighter in weight, allowing it to post securely on the end of the barrel if you so choose. The section is gently tapered to bolster the comfort of writing with the Belliver.
The Belliver Bracket Brown fountain pen version uses the modern screw-in converter and is fitted with Conway Stewart's large solid 18 carat gold nib, available in a choice of eight grades from Extra Fine through Extra Broad, Italic Fine, Italic Medium and Italic Broad, allowing this special edition to reflect the personal handwriting style of a wide range of writers.
The packaging for the Conway Stewart Belliver Bracket Brown special edition has been designed to house your pen and to serve as a showcase pen stand for the desk. The display box is crafted of luxurious full grain leather in a rich black colour. Not only is this an elegant and stylish presentation to house and protect your gift, the top of the lid can be reversed to make an executive desk stand for display.
When creating this Belliver design, the craftsmen at Conway Stewart were inspired by some of the greatest designs of the company’s history. Looking to provide not merely an attractive pen, but a true modern classic that would serve faithfully as a reliable and enjoyable fine writing instrument.
