With October comes the changing of the leaves, sipping of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, political campaign mudslinging and, most importantly, the Goldspot Reader's Choice 2013 Pen of the Year. We need nominees from you, the pen-loving public, for your favorite choice of pen that was released in 2013. That could also include new finishes or colors of a pen model that has been around longer than the last year.
We'll sort through your comments to compile a list of nominees to vote on starting Tuesday, November 5th (Election Day). Voting will last one week and will conclude with the official crowning of this year's winner. The Poll & Results will be posted here and on our Goldspot Pens Blog. So, please give us your suggestions and remember, it's all in good fun!
Here are some examples of pens made in 2013 : Lamy Safari Neon Yellow, Cross Year of the Horse, Pelikan m605 Marine Blue, Edison Menlo Pump Filler, Parker Premier Art Deco, Visconti Dali Surrealist, Montegrappa Fortuna Skull, Pilot Justus 95, Pilot Stargazer, OMAS 360 Vintage Ltd Ed Smoky Black, Platinum Cool, Monteverde Intima, etc. Remember, these are examples meant to get the brain juices flowing. Feel free to suggest any other pen, even if you aren't 100% positive it was made this year.
