As usual we gave/received some pen and writing related Christmas gifts in the PhilNH5 household.

ML's Pineider is beautiful. The color is Neptune Blue. It has a magnet to hold the cap close. The cap bottom ring is  based on the Florence skyline as this pen is made in Italy. It is a medium nib and writes very well. ML likes it.

This is the Edelstein 2019 Special Edition pen and Ink set in star ruby. This is my third pen in this series. I have an extra fine nib. This makes the pen scratchy but I find that it helps my penmanship.

This is TWSBI's foray into inks as they are a pen manufacturer. From their website:
This 6 pack series of inks we created from a book written in 1791 called "Dream of Red Chambers". It's one of China's 4 great classical novels and we picked colors out of the buildings and descriptions within this book for this series of ink. 
For a limited time only
Color: Sky Blue, Emerald Green, Royal Purple, Pink, Orange, Prairie Green

The bottles are 18 mLs and very cute. The holder they came in looks like plastic but is 100% cardboard and is recyclable. I like the colors except for the prairie green as I am partial to bright colors. I inked 4 pens and they all handled well in my limited test.

I don't use fountain pens anymore but did decades ago (we all did!). But what I can do is enjoy nicely made functional items that are also things of beauty. Very nice!
