Being a member of the Fountain Pen Network – Philippines group while living in the province has its drawbacks. Foremost is the availability, or lack thereof, of materials. So when news of big sales in the metro abound in the group, I can only stare wistfully at the pictures and wish I was there as well.
After that painful fall (pun intended) of my beloved Pilot Metropolitan, I couldn’t bear to just throw it away. Replacing the nib and/section was my only option, since getting the nib repaired would cost more than the pen itself. And as much as I love it to bits, I am not so carefree with my money as to go through with that option.
So I got these gorgeous pens the other day. And for so cheap too, though they did take their sweet time getting delivered from overseas (China). And did I say they’re gorgeous? 😍
