Merry Christmas! I hope that over the holidays you’ll find the time to enjoy some of your favourite pens and pencils.
I was lucky enough to get some pencils for Christmas from my wife (including a Lamy plus pencil, which isn’t easy to get in the UK and some less common Staedtler pencils), but I also got two non-pencil items for Christmas: a bottle of Graf von Faber-Castell’s new ink and a Lindauer fountain pen. In Papier Pfeiffer I was told that Faber-Castell is currently only shipping Hazelnut Brown, Stone Grey and Garnet Red – I assume this is only true for Germany though. Shops in other countries seem to stock different ink colours.
