A birthday, and the attendant (generously given, gratefully received) gifts have led to a few new things to feed my not-so-modest stationery addiction. Pictured here, a hint of the Field Notes subscription and the new most stealthy and gruntingly manly fountain pen to join my pen case, the limited edition, all matte black Pilot Capless (Namiki Vanishing Point in some markets) retractable, clicky goodness. It’s very nice, and really needs to be seen in person. Black as black as black.
