    Two antique store finds :

    A Sheaffer Snorkal Valiant in pastel green, along with a Snorkel magazine ad from the same location (but different stall). I polished up the nib, and restored it with new sac and seals.





    And a Parker Duofold Vacumatic (DuoVac) that will need a restoration (diaphragm/sac crumbled) by someone other than myself as I don't have the tools or experience with vacumatics (can handle sac pens tho), and possibly a nib replacement (the left tip/tine was bent exactly 90 degrees to the left, you can see the bump when I carefully used my thumbnail to push it back, it's 'usable' but for how long til the tip gives is anyone's guess)



    It's appearance the day I got it last month (which was my wedding day, but I had to kill some time as I wasn't allowed to be near the venue as they were getting ready)

    Here are my two latest pens:

    A DuPont Renaissance Phoenix who’s black lacquer has Gibson meteor dust sprinkled in it.

    The next is the modern Duofold big red. I found it on sale on Amazon and regretted selling my Rockwell!

    Just gave in and ordered a Sterling barrel Sheaffer Targa (slim model) with a 14k oblique nib and ten dried up slim carts.

    I can't wait for this one to arrive!

    So many restoration projects...

    "Iolanthe" from Garcia-Deschacht.

    If you visit Garcia-Deschacht.com, go to Videos/Links, you can see a video of the pen being made.

    It has been a truly excellent experience having discussions about the pen, chosing a name, from which the makers found inspiration for the decoration.

    The pen should be with me next week.

    Exhausted from a lot of driving and a long weekend at the LA Pen Show, so the real pics of the two pens will wait til I can do them. *However*, I had a wonderful moment at the show: my dear friend Marta T-Q and I with Sarj Minhas, both of us purchasing newly released "Sarj 'One-Man Pen Show' Minhas" pens! Beautiful new piston-fillers by Leonardo, with Sarj's iconic image in three places on the pen. Full photos will come later, but this is a great memory item to keep and use and I had to share.

    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."

    Here is my Aiken Lambert that appears in Jim Marshall's book Collecting Old Writing Equipment. Jim writes, "The 'secretary pen' is compact with both the pen shaft and the nib retracting into a short cylinder and many Aiken Lambert...examples are superbly decorated." I have to agree.

    That's a nice tie, Jon!
    Online arguments are a lot like the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
    As soon as the audience begins to participate, any actual content is lost in the resulting chaos and cacophony.
    At that point, all you can do is laugh and enjoy the descent into debasement.
