I had a heavy hand in designing the Nighthawk, which is the first matte Carbon Fiber pen Monteverde has produced. The matte black trim and black nib make this one super stealthy pen, and I talk about what it was like to design it, and well as show how it fills and writes.

The Goulet #6 nibs have been a hit in the all-steel color, so we decided to bring them out in the two-tone color as well. These nibs are still stainless steel, but plated in yellow gold to give it a look that'll match silver-or gold-trimmed pens. I cover what it looks like here, but you should check out my other Goulet Nibs video to see how to actually install them onto a pen.

The Edison Beaumont is a pen that came out in August of 2012 in three colors. Edison has recently added a new color, called Bordeaux Flake, to the lineup. It's a nice crimson red flecked material embedded in a pool of black to compliment the black accents of the grip and finial.

Apica has always made decent paper, so when I heard they were coming out with a premium line, I just had to get my hopes up. Often, when I get my hopes up, it's easy to be disappointed....but not here. Seriously, this paper is awesome. It's not perfect, and I go over all that, but it is seriously some paper worthy of the name "premium".

It may seem like an elementary topic, but you'd be surprised how often I get asked how to properly install an ink cartridge. The concept is the same for just about any cartridge/converter fountain pen, and I am using a Lamy Vista to demonstrate the practice. Learn how to properly install it, when to change it, and how often to clean it depending on your usage.
