Lamy Safari Cap Finials

The pink Lamy Safari has been reissued, and it's a little different this go-round. It actually has a black 'X' finial, instead of a pink one like before when it was available in 2010/2011. I've been getting a lot of questions about what the 'new' pen looks like, so I wanted to share.

Goulet Mylar Paper Tutorial

This pair of 4.25"x5.5" sheets includes one 1-micron and one 0.3 micron sheet of Mylar paper, which is a super-fine abrasive used to make your nibs write glassy-smooth.
