The boat from Japan has arrived, bringing us both new products and a resupply of products that were running low or sold out. We are adding two new products from Craft Design Technology, the CDT A5 Notepad and the CDT Brush Pen (plus refill), which happens to be our first brush pen. We have added the very iconic Mitsubishi No. 772 Red-Blue Pencils, the Dog Ear Notebook by Hum, and the Legno Pen and Acro Drive Pen from Pilot. Finally, we are adding the Nähe General Purpose Case. Nähe is yet another great brand by Hightide (creators of the Penco, PH, and Hum brands). The Nähe line is mostly storage and organizational products drawing inspiration from German stationers. We specifically chose this Nähe case to accommodate full-sized colored pencils, like our Mitsubishi No. 850s that are too long for many other pen and pencil cases. It'll hold about a dozen pencils, so a whole box of Mitsubishi No. 101s, or a nice array of individual pens, pencils, or erasers.
