Safely Replacing a Lamy Feed

While the feeds of Lamy fountain pens aren't made to be removed as a regular part of their operation, it is possible to accidentally pull one out when swapping your nib. If you put the feed back in incorrectly, you can jam it in and make it nearly impossible to remove without damaging it. I made this video to help you safely replace your feed in your pen in case you should find yourself in this situation.

Noodler's Acrylic Konrad Flex Pens

Noodler's has recently released a new material for the Konrad Flex Pen, Acrylic Acetate. This is the same shiny, rich (non-smelly) resin that you're used to in many other much more expensive pens. Definitely a step up in the Noodler's line.

One Million Views (and counting)

It's hard for me to believe that you have seen my face (and hands!) over a million times now on YouTube, thank you so much for watching my videos! Podcasting is something I started later and I have a smaller but still loyal following. This video is purely just to thank you, and to give you some backstory about how and why I started doing videos.

Goulet Nibs

I'm very pleased to announce the introduction of the Goulet #6 Stainless Steel nibs! Made by Jowo in Germany, these $15 stainless steel nibs are available in EF, F, M, B, 1.1, and 1.5 sizes, and have a sweet GP ink splatter logo on them. These nibs are ideal for converting your Noodler's Ahab or Konrad (and any other pen that holds a #6 nib) to a non-flexible pen with a good range of nib sizes.
