Sailor Pen has introduced a great looking new fountain pen called the Lecoule. It’s designed for students and people who have never used a fountain pen before. The Sailor Lecoule is offered in five translucent cap colors with a pearly white barrel. They come in a clear plastic presentation gift box with ink cartridges, but no converter. If you prefer to use bottled ink, a standard Sailor ink converter will fit and will need to be purchased separately. The Sailor Lecoule should be a comfortable pen with a length of 123mm, diameter of 17mm, and weighing in at 12.4 grams. It also features a stainless steel nib available in one size: Medium-Fine. The Sailor Lecoule is already available in Japan and is scheduled for international delivery in April/May 2012 at retail price of approximately $40.

FPGeeks on InstagramIf any two pens deserved a direct comparison it'd be the Visconti Homo Sapiens Crystal and Florentine Hills. The materials of both pens are absolutely stunning and choosing only one is a very difficult decision. Hopefully my video at fpgeeks.com will help you decide. If you've already made your decision, which one would it be?fpgeeks2059Aurora has added this hot new Optima Deco to their lineup. It's available in three writing modes and three finishes. Discover all the details at fpgeeks.com.fpgeeks1936I finally got around to that red ink comparison featuring Montblanc Corn Poppy Red. In short, it's awesome and I'm glad I bought a bottle. Visit fpgeeks.com for scans and more details.fpgeeks3049I performed a little nib work in this Montegrappa Nero Uno. It had been a while since I used one and I forgot how good they feel in the hand. Definitely worth looking into.fpgeeks2747I just published my review of the Classic Pens LB5 seen here in Space Blue next to the LM1 in Flame Red. The LB5 quickly became my favorite pen to the point of causing me to neglect every other pen in my collection. Read (or watch) the review at fpgeeks.com.fpgeeks2368One of my all time favorite pens, the Pelikan M800. I had the pleasure of turning the stock fine nib into a lovely little stub. If you would like a similar service performed on one of your pens, please visit fpgeeks.com/nib-services/fpgeeks3389One perk of being a pen repairman is getting to play with exotics like this retractable nib Visconti Pininfarina. This job might take a little longer than expected, if ya know what I'm sayin'!fpgeeks28218Had the privilege of performing some nib work on this awesome ruthenium plated @montblanc 146! This needs to be a standard production model. STAT!fpgeeks2348The Backpocket Ink Tester is a wonderful little notebook for keeping organized notes of all your inks. It's just one more great product from Curnow Bookbinding & Leatherwork that I'm a huge fan of. Visit fpgeeks for more info.fpgeeks1807There's only a few days left to get in on the @eighty_pages notebook KickStarter. It's a good pocket notebook with fountain pen friendly paper.
