Mr. P and I hit up Paradise Pen in Las Vegas last week. I was so sad to see that they are closing this location effective June 1. Other than Montblanc in Caesar’s Palace, Paradise Pen is the only pen shop that I know in Vegas. It’s too bad – but I definitely get that the high cost of rent in big malls doesn’t make it easy.
Everything was on sale – up to 25% off all items. The employee on duty didn’t seem to have any wiggle room with this. I asked, they are not selling any fixtures or displays.
But they were selling this….
I’ve actually been pondering on this very pen for quite some time. Uncle Robert’s 149 is a bit too big and heavy for my wee lady hands. (My hands are not actually wee, but the 149 is definitely on the bulky side for me.)
I’ve not inked it yet, but will post about it when I do.
I probably won’t use only Montblanc inks in it – I’m just pentulant that way. I love that the converter has a mixy thing in it. You can see it in the picture above near “ink only.”
Mr. P didn’t come away empty-handed either. Stay tuned!
