    I have three of his pens and they are gems. Not because they look good, which they do, but because they are perfectly balanced and make writing effortless. This was my first Twiss pen

    My newest purchase is a Soennecken 112, a pretty Platinum pocket pen, and an Arnold grey and black swirl with a Waterman nib. I bought them from the one and only Penwash (Will) of Redeempens at the Dallas Pen Show.

    Bit fed up with some of the crap I've been sold, so I've taken the plunge and bought a near mint striped Waterman W5. The price is approx $135, which probably isn't much of a deal, but as long as the pen is in the described condition I won't mind overpaying a bit.

    A vintage bottle of Parker Quink ink. The bottle is cobalt blue glass (never seen one ever) and the shape is interesting too.



    The pen, I just restored.

    That's cool. Do you know what year did Parker produce these blue bottles until?

    These two, arriving a few days apart from each other, both very special and different.

    Pretty funny to see that 2nd pen after the 1st and think: "Out, damned spot!"

    I'm celebrating Fountain Pen Day 2019 with my latest find: a 1941 Sheaffer Lifetime "Tuckaway" set, the 1st gen that was only made for 2 years. This one is a Vacuum-Fil version with 14k gold-filled cap and barrel, and matching (working!) pencil. A niche in my Sheaffer collection I've wanted to fill for a while, certainly worth the hunt. Oh, and bonus points to those who spot any other temporal connection to this day...
