Weekend Pen Spotlight

Weekend Pen SpotlightBefore we get into this weeks' links, we would like to remind our blog subscribers that Goldspot is having a site/store-wide sale on thousands of fine writing pens and accessories. Just look for the "Spring Fever" sale tag to find the best deals. Make sure to take advantage of our free shipping on orders of $75 or more anywhere in the US. Act now, the sale will be ending by Monday, the 19th.

Now, to our favorite pen posts this week:

Inkophile reviews the Noodler's #41 Brown, which was created in honor of newly elected Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts.

Thanks to Letters and Journals for reminding us that April is National Letter Writing Month. So, get writing! Write a love letter to your significant other or a letter to your Senator. Pick a topic that has you spirited and enthusiastic to reach for your pen and paper to scribble each passionate sentence.

We had the Tale of Two Ipsilon Reviews this week, as both Biffybeans and Officesupplygeek reviewed the Aurora Ipsilon fountain pen. At the Spiritual Evolution of the Bean, the Ipsilon was held in comparison to a Pelikan m200 and Sailor Sapporo. Officesupplygeek shows off the box and a comparison writing sample. The comments section got hijacked by Der Bingle and myself going off-topic about the pen industry and selling on eBay.

Will be back soon with more reviews and a gift-giving guide for Mother's Day and College Grads. Have a great weekend!
