The Inky Way, 2019

It’s not often that my hobbies intersect, so when they do, I feel like a giddy kid watching a rocket launch for the first time. When I saw these space-themed notebooks by Back Pocket Notebook Co., I knew I had to order them. They combined some of my...

I’ve been impressed by the fountain pens I’ve bought from Chinese brands lately, and my most recent purchase – the PenBBS 309 – is no exception. It’s a piston-filling pen that writes smoothly and reliably. At its price range of $15 - $25 (for most de...

“Yonaga” in Japanese is translated as “long autumn night/evening” in English, and this is an apt name for this ink. It’s a mesmerizing, deep, dark blue that reminds me of quiet, moonless evenings.

Yonaga is one of the four new Shikiori (Four Seasons)...

Say the phrase “Old Gold” and what comes to my mind are pirates and conquistadores in their majestic, full-rigged ships. I have no idea why, since I’m pretty sure they were after new gold – bright, eye-searing, freshly-minted bars and coins in overfl...

A few days ago, this yellow sunburst of a notebook arrived and it put me in such a good mood. I mean, look at it! How can that not put a smile on your face?

Original Crown Mill’s Classic Laid Paper is simply exquisite. Its lightly-ribbed texture, its weight, its matte finish, and its smoothness speak volumes of its quality. Yet it is also plain and understated, leaving it to the writer to adorn the page.

I love Robert Oster inks so for my next 3D printing project, I chose to design a simple bottle holder / stand for the 50ml Robert Oster ink bottle. This design is for a single bottle, though it could be easily edited to hold a few more bottles. The a...

Holy smokes! This is my first pen from PenBBS and color me impressed. For around $15, you get a smooth, reliable writer in an attractive resin body. It's such a fun pen to use and to look at. I've been using it non-stop since I received it....
