Karas Kustoms Fountain K Fountain Pen Overview

We recently launched the Karas Kustoms Fountain K and I'm excited to get to show you more of this pen. The Fountain K is very industrial looking, and I can see it appeal to anyone who's looking for an indestructible pen. These pens are machined here in the USA and can literally be thrown across a parking lot, or run over by a car and still write just fine.

Karas Kustoms INK Fountain Pen Overview

If you are looking for a rugged every day carry fountain pen, look no further than the Karas Kustoms Ink. Don't be confused by the name- the Ink, is in fact, a fountain pen. It comes in 15 varieties of colors/finishes, made of 3 types of material. All feature the same utilitarian/industrial design with swappable grip sections and nib units.

Lamy Al-Star Charged Green 2016 SE: Quick Look

It's always exciting when the Lamy special editions colors are announced! Every year or so Lamy comes out with a new color to offer as a special edition pen. The color is made in limited quantities, so there's no telling exactly how long it will be around. It's no secret that Lamy has come out with lots of different shades of green in the past, but this one is unique with lots of great inks and notebooks to pair with it. The Charged Green Al-Star fountain pen, rollerball, bottled ink and cartridges are expected to be available later this February!
