    How exciting. Exactly what sort of fountain pens do you plan to design and print? Please can we see some pictures of your results?

    Right now I don't have anything specific in mind. I am trying to wrap my head around the process of working with the software. I downloaded the openfountainpen files to see how it is constructed and learn how to manipulate the files. Once I understand that, then I'll start looking into making my own. I do have to say that Titan Pens take on the Omas 360 is a very strong influence on me right now.

    I think the new Visconti Opera demo - Versaiiles look pretty.

    Might be one to look for at the London Pen Show.

    I think we'll see a leaps and bounds innovation coming out of this particular space.

    Over at Pentrace, recently John Hubbard introduced his Moonwalkpen.com which I think is really cool.
