“Pens! They’re the best friend you can have! Everything I know about people, I learnt from pens. If they don’t work, you shake them.”
Pauline Campbell-Jones, League of Gentlemen
It’s no secret I love pens. They are something you can never have too many of. If you sit next to me at work, one or two of yours will probably end up on my desk.
It was here that I discovered the Kaweco fountain pen and clutch pencil. I was trying to decide which one to buy, when a voice from the other side of the room said “why don’t you just buy both?”. So I did, and here they are.
I’ve wanted to start a lettering project for a while but was waiting until I found the right pen – which I’m hoping will by my Kaweco. The fountain pen is really smooth and the fact that it uses ink makes it feel like a ‘real pen’. The pencil is easy to hold and its stubby leads will be perfect for a quick bit of sketching. Now all I have to do is pluck up the courage to make a mark in one of the many notebooks I am saving for something special.
