    It’s sad to see that some people disliked this video just because of sponsors. Thinking the reviews will be biased . The viewers who watched the Pen Habit the last couple of years should know better. We all know by now what Matt likes and dislikes in fountain pens. And that spark of enthusiasm in his eyes tell more than words do. Give the guy a chance before you Judge him.

    • Hehe. Pretty much all of my videos get downvotes. There is a subset of people out there who will vote down anything I do just because it is me. I don’t care too much anymore. I’m just surprised that people would even take the effort to bother. Seems like a pretty big waste of time to me.

        Hey, it’s when they ignore you that you should worry! Keep up the great work!

    Hello Matt — I’ve been following your hobby for a while now and I’d like to thank you for your all the hard work promoting great pens etc. I have a great time watching your videos. Also wondering if there is a coupon code we can use with these fellows in Belgium? They have really nice shipping fares inside the EU. The other one worked like a charm at La Couronne, many thanks for that one 😉

    Greetings from Portugal!

    • At this point, they haven’t offered a promo code, but I can certainly ask.

      • Vasco

        No big deal really, it’s just that they have a coupon field in their checkout forms so I was wondering if I was missing the information. Okay, thank you very much.
