Etelburg DAPF Fountain Pen & Rollerball Set

Sorry. I can’t spell. That should be DPAF.

Sending a hearty thank you to Etelburg for providing this pen set for a review, and an extra set for a giveaway! The giveaway will be held on Instagram (per the donor's request), so please check out the post here on Instagram! The giveaway is open worldwide and runs from today until 11:59pm Eastern on Friday, July 15, 2022. The winner will be randomly selected by Etelburg and I will ship the prize to the winner. Please see the Instagram post on my feed for all information and entry details.

Added note: the insert in the box is CORN! So it’s 100% biodegradable, which was one of my few objections to the set up. Perfect.
