In this issue

In this issue: Kanilea Pen Co. erupts in a creative flow with the new Kilauea Kai fountain pen collection. Leonardo Officina Italiana exploded on the scene with the popular Momento Zero model, but new releases show there is far more to this company. With new maki-e and urushi pens, limited edition inks, and a U.S.-exclusive Custom 743, Japan’s Pilot displays a steady hand on the tiller. Germany’s Leuchtturm Gruppe is growing with two new Leuchtturm1917 journaling concepts and a new German pen brand added to the family: stilform. We test the new Tomoe River paper, and fans will be pleased with the results. In two vintage subjects, read a chapter from Jonathan A. Veley’s INDIE Book Award-winning A Field Guide to Sheaffer’s Pencils, and learn the inside story of how Fisher Space Pen was launched. Plus: the new Montblanc Masters collection, Pelikan hubs, Waldmann Pen “Xetra” Vienna engraving, and so much more.
