The Classic Fountain Pens newsletter is published monthly. We bring you the latest news

arrivals in pre-owned pens and accessories, and information
on special deals.
Just announced, the Pelikan M800 Souverän Grand Place revives a rich swirling design previously available only in the smaller M600 series. This special edition pen is being produced for a limited time only, but we have managed to secure a small number for our customers - 18k solid gold nib sizes are Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, and, exclusively through us here, Extra Broad. Retail $850, our price $680. Pre-orders are now being accepted - you will not be charged until your pen arrives and is ready to ship to you.
Cross Botanica Pens Now Available With 18k Nibs
A colorful way to start the new year, the Cross Botanica series offers a potpourri of choices. Featuring undulating motifs inspired by henna art, these pens are usually made available only with steel nibs, but we are able to offer your choice of 18k solid gold Cross nib in Fine or Medium for the gold trim pens, and Fine, Medium, or Broad for the rhodium trim pens.
The Cross Townsend uses the same high quality 18k nib made for Pelikan pens, and the Medium in particular makes an excellent starting point for customizations to Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique.
Choose from the warm gold C3PO, the stark white Stormtrooper, or the stealth black Darth Vader, which has been in very high demand. All pens are in stock and available for immediate shipment. Our price for each pen $575.
