OVERALL

I have personally visited Phidon Pens and it's always so fun. I love brick and mortar stores and Mano and Baldeep are so kind and welcoming! It's a pleasure to spread the word about their 10th Anniversary ink - celebrating ten years of their store. I am a fan of Diamine inks, this is a lovely color - a touch on the dark side for what I typically use, but for a folded nib, it's perfect - and it's well-behaved.
