• A LEATHER PENCIL CASE WITH STYLE AND SOUL

    When you Google “leather pencil case” you will find a lot of different styles.  Some cowboy-esque.  Some hoity-toity.  I think you’ll find this particular leather pencil case one that is beautiful, and modern, and on top of that- has a conscience.

  • KAWECO SPORT FOUNTAIN PEN REVIEW

    I wouldn’t say I’m a fountain pen expert.  However, for the last 2 years, I’ve pretty much exclusively used one pen for writing- the Kaweco Sport.*  I know product page descriptions don’t the in-depth info you want to make a purchase like this online.  I hope this Kaweco Sport Fountain Pen review will help fill
