Review: Jinhao 8812 Plum Flower Fountain Pen - Medium Nib

P1000832

I got five pens for my 25th birthday. This is one of them. The Online Ocean 3-in-1 was another. The rest are on my “to review” list. As a side note, my scanned notes for this pen appear shorter than most of my other notes, but that’s okay; I don’t really need a lot of notes to talk about something.

Ah, the Jinhao pens. I believe that this one cost me about £6, which is fine by me; I was willing…

First post directly on this blog and what you can expect from me.

Hello!

This is just a brief post to… To tell you what you can expect from me here.

Well.

Reviews for one; lots of them. I’ve really found my groove in regards to those. At least, I hope so; I hope I’ve found my groove and I hope I’ll be able to write lots of them. I would like to branch out into reviewing other stationery, the blog is KenRen’s Stationery after all and not just KenRen’s Pens…

Review: Online Germany’s Pearl White Tango Fountain Pen @ONLINEgermany

Review: Online Germany’s Pearl White Tango Fountain Pen @ONLINEgermany

Damn English weather. This would've been so awesome if it had been a bit brighter.

I first saw this pen on… I think it was eBay, a very long time ago. I think I was looking for a white fountain pen for some reason. And, at the time, I don’t think I was very good at getting anything more expensive than a Lamy Safari, so I passed on it. Quite a few weeks ago now, maybe mid August, I was in TK Maxx when I came across this pen. For £5.99. Was I going to pass that up? I don’t think…

This is a review I’ve been meaning to do since I started actually doing them more seriously. I have had this pen a very long time – About a year and a bit if the date on the terrible photos of the awesome packaging are to go by. (And you can see that packaging here.) I’m not entirely sure why I haven’t done this sooner. Maybe it’s because I don’t use it as much as I should. And that is because I…

Review: Faber-Castell Grip 2011 Ballpoint Pen

Oh no, a ballpoint! Ha. No, I kid. I don’t mind them.

I won this pen during National Stationery Week this year… I won it from… I actually don’t remember? But I won it. That was a fairly long time ago, now I think about it. So, I obviously didn’t buy it, and I wasn’t asked to review it, I’ve just been using it for the last couple of days and thought that I would.

Review: Online Germany’s “All You Need” 3 -in-1 Pen @ONLINEgermany

As you may or may not know, it was my birthday last Friday. I saw my father and step-mother on the Saturday where they presented me with, amongst other things, this nifty little pen. I got home and inked it up, and I’ve been switching between the nib units since then.

Now, quick disclaimer; obviously, I didn’t pay for this. And I wasn’t asked to review it, but I’m going to because, why not?

And now back to your regular scheduled programming…

Hello crumpets.

Last week was a bit heavy and was also not stationery related at all, wasn’t it? I felt like… Like it was something that needed talking about, especially while the topic at hand was actually at the forefront of everyone’s minds. It’s an important topic that doesn’t get mentioned enough.

So! Back to this week.

I’ve been going a little ink sample crazy recently. There’s a couple of…
