NSW18: #stationerytheworldover with Pen Chalet [sponsored]

Mid-way through National Stationery Week we celebrate World Stationery Day, which is the perfect opportunity to introduce my international sponsor, Pen Chalet*. You might remember them from last year’s Fountain Pen Day giveaway and they’re back with another fab fountain pen giveaway.

You know the product is something special when it comes in fancy packaging!

Opus 88 review

I have to say, this is the nicest fountain pen I have ever used. I reviewed a LAMY fountain pen for last year’s National Stationery Week and found it to be a little scratchy. This beautiful Opus 88 picnic fountain pen is as smooth as silk and flows like a rollerball. It’s so easy to write with and there’s no smudging due to excessive ink. It’s also available in brown and green if blue isn’t your thing (it’s totally mine!).

I was a bit intimidated using the dropper instead of a cartridge, as I’m used to, but it took seconds to fill and there was no leakage. Plus did you see how stunning that colour is? It’s the Robert Oster Signature Ink in Morning Mist. Because the pen is see-through, you can easily see how much ink you have left, plus refilling is a breeze. The eye-dropper technique has been tried and tested for over one hundred years and is a method I now feel completely comfortable using.

I think I’m a fountain pen convert!

  1. I haven’t used a fountain pen for years. I was put off as the ink kept ‘splatting’ across the page. I was using a very cheap one though so maybe I would have better luck with a decent one like this.
