    Hello Azkid,

    I have just noticed your location!
    Is it true that Denver is a mile high (5280 feet) above sea level?

    Absolutely true! At least a few spots like the steps of the Capitol...

    Of course there's all sorts of variation in the area. I'm on the south end of the metro area at 5519 ft ASL.

    A shot comparing complete sets of Waterman Juniors and Eversharp Oxfords, both from the mid/late-1930s. I was intrigued to discover that both models shared the same range of colors:

    2. 1920s Aikin Lambert Capitol Cabinet
    3. c.1915 A.A. Waterman Twist Filler

    What unusual pens you have there. And WOW what a storm Ciara turned out to be. We lost 3 fence panels yesterday and have never lost any before!

    And he is such a pleasant, unassuming young man. A privilege to do business with him.

    I am not so sure about his more expensive "Architect" and "Jaali" pens, a bit blingy for me, but he obviously knows his target market.

    I love that Twiss pen. John Twiss always seems to find such gorgeous materials, old French celluloids for instance. I regret not buying one of those pens when I met him at Cambridge pen show... I got a second hand Twiss pen a bit later but it's not quite as lovely as RWS's.

    I am in agreement with you, having visited the website, I would have picked the Mirage also.
