Very nice pens. I'd love to have a nice Pelikan pen and that ceramic holder! I too collect both fountain pens and typewriters, but somehow feel I get more for my money with a typewriter (and they are usually much cheaper than pens). I don't have a TWSBI pen yet, but I hear all good about them.
Golly, yes! Fountain pens are the height of elegance. I once thought about starting a fountain pen blog and calling it a ... PLOG!
Wow, those shop displays are wonderful, and the Pelikan ad at the beginning of your post is just fantastic.A Pilot vanishing point pen is my everyday handwriting tool and I consider it perfect.
Nice pens!I still have a Pelikano, the beginner's model from Pelikan from primary school, but I use it once in a blue moon - I find ball pens much more convenient.
Great pens you have there :) My father had a few but I've never paid them much attention. I do prefer a simple nib in a wooden handle. They're much cheaper and the calligraphy gets very nice too.And really do love that epoca font!
One obsession at a time. I like it. That 's really healthy. ( :
A nice collection and I certainly understand about your focusing on one are of collecting at a time. However, there are a tremendous number of inexpensive Chinese models now extant, and we want you back in the fountain pen fold! :-)
