Well this is a pen I’ve owned for ages but never reviewed. As it’s back in my work rotation this is a great opportunity for a JAPB review! I had my eye on the Loom for a while before I picked it up. I really liked the aesthetics; simple lines, solid colours. The list price […]Read more "Faber-Castell Loom"
So no photos this time. I ‘took’ one of the shop interior but it seems my phone neglected to save it 😦 My partner really wanted to see an art exhibition in South Islington. This gave me an excuse to walk 10 minutes West and visit Present & Correct. This darling little shop is in […]Read more "Present & Correct, Isington"

When I left the job I used it at my co-workers had a whip round and bought me a lovely blue Lamy AL-Star with a fine nib. I enjoyed using it a lot and when the supplied […]Read more "Montverde Turquoise T10 format cartridges for lamy pens"
So I’ve been getting into pencils. It all started with this episode of the Pen Addict Podcast about mechanical pencils.

They were neat and others were to follow but before that I started listening to the Erasable […]Read more "I Wanna New Drug"
