First Look At: CTF's HitList Notebook (again!)

Finally, at long last I actually have something to review! I've been hard at work, but I haven't spent much time at all with my own personal  fountain pens. Saving money means buying less pens and inks, so for the last few months, I've had nothing new to write about.

That changes today thanks to "CTF" the creator of the HitList Notebook. He's been kind enough to send me one of his new notebooks for preview/review.

If you haven't read my original review of the HitList, or you simply have never heard of this notebook before, I highly recommend you stop here, and go check it out, as today's post will just be about the changes made in this new rendition of my favorite notebook (spoilers!). Let's get going.

Ice Storm - Expect some delays...

Hey guys,

For any of you who are expecting a pen and/or nib in the mail from me, or are awaiting a response to an email, please expect some short delays. Perhaps a day or two.

We had a decent sized ice storm over at my place, and the power has gone down. It's been out for around a day and a half, and it looks like we just got it back on line. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

It's been a very cold, and dark last day and a half. Without power, heat, internet, or light, I didn't quite get the same amount of work done that I normally do. =)

But yeah, we've pretty much got everything settled now, so things will resume again very soon.

Apologies for any delays. I'm not gone, just occupied with stuff that's a tad more important than fountain pens.

Happy Holidays guys!

Generators are happily cranking away. 

And we lost a few tree limbs, but thankfully nothing hit the house, or anything important really.

Ink Review - Private Reserve Tanzanite (Fast Dry)

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another ink review. I have a couple of Private Reserve inks on my list of inks to review, as I bought quite a few bottles during a sale a while back, that I never got around to trying out.

So here we are now. Private Reserve Tanzanite (Fast Dry), is an ink that interested me awhile back. Mostly due to the fact that I enjoy a nice purple ink every now and again, and I really like Private Reserve's fast-dry inks.

Let's check it out guys, and see if it's an ink worthy of a purchase, or just another "meh" color.

A new batch of fantastic writers surface...

And just in time for the holidays. :)

Hope all is well with you folks this holiday season! Things have been busy with me, to say the least, but I've been having fun, so I can't complain.

I've got a bunch of new pens up for sale over on the website, and I'll be listing more in the weeks to come before Christmas hits, and all that craziness.

Whether you're looking for a gift, or a present to yourself, I'll bet you'll find something you love. Please do check it out, causes there are a couple of pens over on the website that I am super excited about getting into peoples hands. They're just amazing.

Take care guys, and I will see about getting up an ink review in the meantime. I've got a couple of Private Reserve inks I've been meaning to do...
