Y'all! I bought a Shinobi!

Well, here it is! My first Shinobi! This pen was definitely an impulse buy (I was actually saving for something else... something much less cool) but I haven't had one second of buyer's remorse. For those of you who don't know about Shinobis, they are custom pens made by Shawn Newton of Newton Pens. There are plenty of blog posts explaining the Shinobi and Shawn (here, here, here) so I'll just skip to the specifics of MY SHINOBI!!

MY SHONOBI (can you tell I like typing that?) is made from black and "dijon" ebonite and has a super wet medium nib. I've heard so many people say that once you get a custom pen it's hard to go back to buying factory products and I can totally see why. This pen writes like a dream! I am so, so, so glad that I snagged this thing. I really feel like it was made for me, even though... it wasn't. :) Take a look at the pictures below and then head on over to Newton Pens and start working on a design of your own. Jb
