We just received in our shipment of TWSBI Vac-Mini pens and the newly re-released and re-designed Vac-20 inkwells, so I figured now would be a good time to introduce both!
I have never actually done a blog on the Vac-700 or the previous Vac-20 bottle. But of course, give me something in miniature form, and I’m all over that…
My ink of choice is Diamine Autumn Oak. If I had been planning this properly, I might have chosen a more festive colour, but Autumn Oak has some hints of red.
The Vac Mini’s are here!! ! ! ! !
So, it’s basically Christmas, already.
I have been looking forward to these Vac Minis for as long as I can remember. I get excited now and then for new pen arrivals, but I have to say this is the most exciting thing we’ve ever received from TWSBI. And that is including the Minis with white & rose gold, one of which I have and love dearly.
A special treat today!
I don’t normally share too much about vintage pens, mainly because I don’t have too many and really because I don’t know too much about the ones I have. However, I picked up a vintage pen at 2015 Scriptus Toronto Pen Show, and it’s a beauty. You can bet no sticky hands are grabbing this one to wave around and drop behind the couch.

I picked up a Parker from the Scriptus Pen Show that ran a few weeks ago. I left it at the show with Jeffry Fridfinnson and his wife Erin, who had a table at the show selling restored vintage pens. Jeffry fixed it up to return to us, which is why there’s been such a gap between the show and this post.
