Shout out to Anthony at ukfountainpens.com

You have probably read the sad news that fountain pen blogger https://ukfountainpens.com has – for the moment at least – put his pens and ink away for the foreseeable. Sad news.

Probably like you I have looked forward to his excellent reviews, thoughts and insights into the addiction hobby that is fountain pens. In recent times I have welcomed a steady stream of blog posts but knowing how much time and effort is required to get regular content out there, I did wonder whether he could sustain it.

I think Anthony has taken the brave but ultimately wise decision to say no more. I hope that it is merely a sabbatical and that the stars and moon align enough to allow a more sustainable output.

I have bought and traded pens from Anthony, corresponded via Instagram and met him several times in person. I can tell you he is an all round good egg and a gentleman. The honesty and humour of his blog posts are there to see in the flesh.

There are lots of great blogs out there https://rupertarzeian.com for the genuine pleasure there is to be had in often inexpensive pens. https://dappr.net for his very detailed reviews but https://ukfountainpens.com has been my favourite. My hope is that unlike Matt from ‘The Pen Habbit’ Anthony can find his way back to writing blog posts.

One thought on “Shout out to Anthony at ukfountainpens.com

  1. I’m certain we will still see him from time to time at group meets – especially if we can bribe his older daughter (for those not in the know, often seen in the videos he does at pen shows and generally reluctant to leave).
    We will just have to keep up the blogging in his memory (alas poor Anthony I remember him well …)
