Nessie is a mysterious water creature who’s rarely been seen outside of their aquatic home. Why are they so reluctant to leave the safety of Loch Ness? Their calm and relaxed demeanor is merely a mask to conceal their ferocious and unbridled rage. Paddling through the calm, cool waters of the loch is the only way they’ve found to soothe their fury. Take a note from Nessie, and for your next pen, choose a serene blue demonstrator pen like the Platinum Preppy Blue or the Pineider Avatar Sky Blue Demo.
Important Note: If you ever see Nessie on land, run.
A tall, hairy, sophisticated beast, the Sasquatch is a mysterious animal. Once thought to be an unevolved forest-dweller, their impressive ability to avoid detection while being under constant pursuit has led to them being admired as masters of disguise. Instead of being offended by nicknames like “skunk ape,” they have embraced their ability to operate under-the-radar and are considered some of the best sleuths around. With your next pen, make it a bit more mysterious and try a hooded nib, the sneakiest of fountain pen designs. The Jinhao 993 Shark, LAMY 2000, and Aurora Duo Cart are all perfect options.
Sought after for their sense of style and arduous skincare routines, the Chupacabra is an animal that stands out from the crowd. Their beauty is not their only notable feature, they’re also thrifty and innovative, harvesting the necessary ingredients for their exclusive serums and creams from local farms. What’s their ultimate beauty secret? They’ll never tell! Inspired by their secret active ingredient, we think you’d enjoy a Kaweco Classic Sport Bordeaux or Platinum #3667 Century Bourgogne.
Once able to terrorize the townspeople of New Jersey from the air with its strong wings and high-pitched scream, the Jersey Devil, has had a difficult few decades. The wings of the Jersey Devil have shrunk, an apparent side-effect of their extreme energy drink addiction. Now unable to soar over the dark green sea of the pine barrens, they have been forced to find new ways to strike terror in the hearts of New Jerseyans. Now on the road, they drive erratically and strike deathly fear in the hearts of careful drivers who happen to get lost. To reminisce about the long flights the Jersey Devil would take over the majestic pine barrens during their heyday, add a dark green pen like the Platinum Plaisir Green or the Visconti Rembrandt Dark Forest to your collection.
Attracted to the limelight (or any light, really), the Mothman is a monster that loves being noticed. A creature of the night, they can often be spotted flying to and from various DJ gigs. While not exactly musically talented, their unconventional fashion sense and desperate need for attention have certainly made them memorable. If you want to make Mothman proud, pull out a flashy pen like the Jinhao X750 Shimmering Sands or the BENU Briolette.
Known for their immense strength, size, and pugnacious personalities, the Kraken is a beast you don’t want to encounter during a long sea voyage. The tragedy of the Kraken is that they desperately love wooden ships, but their extreme tentacle strength means that whenever they try to pick one up to get a closer look, they reduce it to splinters. Their brutish exteriors hide a tender heart that’s been disappointed one too many times. Embrace your inner Kraken and check out some pens made out of wood like the Jinhao 51A or the Conklin Endura.
