Sailor Reglus fountain pen review

3 February 2014 By ian

I’d had my eye on this particular Sailor for while. Sexy and slim… and orange: how could I resist? Particularly when a brand new one came up on eBay for a bargain price. It was meant to be. It’s hard to capture quite how shimmery and lovely the fairly slim resin barrel of this pen […]
