  • TWSBI ECO Fountain Pen Review (The Pen Addict): I was really excited to read Brad's thoughts on the TWSBI Eco fountain pen because I've wanted one since I first saw it. I haven't bought my own yet, but I have had the opportunity to take my friend Christina's Eco out for a test drive. After trying it out and reading Brad's thoughts, I definitely want to get one. I'm hoping for a white Eco with an EF or F nib. Check out this great review!

  • The Polarizing Truth: Why Your TWSBI Eco Won’t Break (Dave Rea): This goes with the article above and makes me feel even safer about my desire to buy a TWSBI Eco. 

  • My Thoughts On Cheap Ebay Pens (The Gentleman Stationer): I was really glad to read this article because this is something I've tried to explain to others before. Cheap pens from China are a bad idea for many reasons. I love this article and the one he links to from Fountain Pen Economics. If you're into pens, this is a must read!

  • Best Strange Podcast: How I Found The Pen Addict (Play Repeat): This is a great blog about how one listener found my favorite podcast. 

  • 8 Reasons Why You Should Write with a Fountain Pen (Ed Jelley): Great article, written by a great blogger.
