    SBRE Brown as an ink?
    Do you now have your own line of inks?

      I had launched a single batch of brown inks, but they’re sold out now.

    If I was rich, I’d gift my grandmother one of these… Sorry. :O

    In all seriousness though, this pen really looks gorgeous. I always wonder how they achieve these patterns. Do they just pour different coloured celluloid together, stir it and hope for the best?

    Oh, and another thing: Do you own any (really) handmade pens (so no “kit-pens”), other than some of the Indian ones you have? I’m currently watching a Youtube-playlist (link below, if you’re interested and don’t already know about these videos) about Japanese fountain pen makers and “repairmen”, and I’m always amazed at the craftsmanship involved, so I’d be very interested in how these pens actually write.

  • Thankyou for your review. As aways, much enjoyed at this end of the world. I love the size and of course the celluloid of the Arco Paragons but they remain a pen I don’t own – just because of the metal section. If they ever produce one without a metal section I’m in deep do-do!

      Isn’t the old style paragon all celluloid?
