View Full Version : My penny ante collection on a makeshift display

September 9th, 2012, 07:52 PM
Howdy again. I'm new, as you can see. Now that I have time, I'm rediscovering some favorite hobbies. I'm just starting out on a shoestring budget, so the nice stuff I really want is still way out of reach. Below the photo I'll list what kind of pens these are.


The corkboard is a Walmart cheapie, 5.5 inches wide by 14 inches tall. I got the oversized push pins from an office supply store.
The pens are, from top to bottom;

Kaiduoli 1078 Gold Rosewood - meduim nib
Wingsung 036 Black and gold plum blossom - fine hooded nib
Baoer 801 Frosted dark blue and gold - fine nib (very nice)
Dikawen 623 silver 8 horses design - fine hooded nib (favorite)
Hero 753A Black and Gold 8 Horses - medium calligraphy nib
Yafa basic black and silver - medium nib

As you can tell, not much of an investment so far. What you think of the really, rally cheap rack? All I wanted to do was get the pens up off of the desk - easily accessible yet out of the way. Before the rack, I tried keeping them in a pen cup. Not a very good idea...

Looks good to me. I actually thought it was an all wood display for a second. :)

Looks great. Wish I'd maintained such fiscal discipline.
