San Francisco International Pen Show 2019

I am sorry it's late, but here we are with some thoughts, snippets, and a little look at my take-homes from the SF Pen Show! I was probably supposed to put links to things but I can't remember what I said I would link to so if there is something, please just drop a comment and I'll grab it for you. My brain is Swiss cheese.

Esterbrook Estie Tortoise Fountain Pen Review with some Vintage Nibs

Thank you to Vanness Pens and Kenro for providing this cute pen for a review! I think it's a really interesting take, not to sound weird about myself or anything. The reason is Kenro ran into some issues with this pen, which I talk about in this video, and they resolved it in a classy manner. I'm happy about it.

P.W. Akkerman Simplisties Violet Ink

To mark our 100 years of existence, PW Akkerman introduced in 2010 his own ink line. This ink’s came in large 150 ml bottles, these large bottles are now completely sold out.
 
Due to the worldwide success of this unique bottle we decided to continue, but now with a smaller sized bottle with a content of ca 60 ml. The new bottles will be available in the same 31 colors as before. 
The Akkerman inks have been given names related to the city The Hague. For example: KoninginneNach-Blauw, Binnenhof Blues, Shocking Blue, Parkpop Purper or/and Rood Haags Pluche.
P.W Akkerman Simplisties Violet Ink 7
P.W. Akkerman Simplisties Violet is a beautiful purple and I like it much more than the blue-toned Parkpop Purper. It has the right level of vibrancy to it and it still shows shading. Like most purples, it requires some attention to cleaning but it's certainly not a limiting factor for enjoying this color.

Price:  € 15,00
Where to buy: P.W. Akkerman (a few US retailers also carry this ink but this is the direct source)

P.W. Akkerman Royal Akkermanblauw is easily one of my favorite, go-to Akkerman inks. It's an easy-to-clean, super well-behaved, classic blue that is just hard to argue with. I used to use it all the time for pen reviews until I ran out of it, but I just want you to know how stellar and classy it is. I love it. Totally worth having a bottle around.

Price:  € 15,00
Where to buy: P.W. Akkerman (a few US retailers also carry this ink but this is the direct source)
