Fountain Pens!

When asked to describe me in one word, my wife once had said “Quirky”. If you know me, you know that is as close a word as it gets to describe me as any. If you know me even more, you probably also know that one of my quirks is that I do not use any pen other than fountain pens. (I have modest collection of them too).
Today, I finally realized how my wife feels in those clothes and dress stores she seems to go to all the time đŸ™‚ Went to the Atlanta Pen Show that opened today. I am easily distracted by a nice fountain pen (especially with fine nibs). They had hundreds and hundreds of them!! Some were of unbelievable vintage. And I met a couple of guys who hand made some of those pens. I was like a kid in a candy store. Really really did not want to come back.
Ah! well!!!

    Neal, Caran d ach, ST DuPont … But the ones I like most are non branded handcrafted ones. I currently use a ST DuPont that I bought 15 years back. The street value went up three times when ST stopped making that pen. I think there are only 100 of those pens in the world today!!
