Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 316

Happy National Handwriting Day!

On their official website, WIMA (the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association) encourages people to "...use a pen or a pencil to rekindle that creative feeling through a handwritten note, poem, letter or journal entry" on National Handwriting Day. We hope you take part in it today... and throughout the year, too :)

Today's featured writing instrument is a handsome modern fountain pen made by a German pen company (and no, it's not Pelikan or Montblanc!) Hint: the company was founded in Stuttgart, Germany and is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Give up?

Meet Stuart's new Diplomat 'Aero' fountain pen!

 Stuart: "The Aero is in the classic zeppelin colour of silver, which suits the pen so well."

"It’s nice in the hand and a lovely smooth writer, one of the best steel nibs I’ve found."

Many thanks to Stuart for his latest contribution to our ongoing virtual "show & tell", and congratulations to Diplomat on their centennial anniversary!
