    Default pens of 2018

    The end of the year is coming closer and I did (as I do every year) a quick inventory of my collection. 2018 was a busy year. Lots of pens went over my work bench but only a few went into the collection.

    from left to right:

    - Pelikan 1929, Jade (I already had a 1929 pen, but this ones jade binde is that perfect that I had to keep it.)

    - Pelikan 101N, Tortoise and short cap top (this is a strange pen, the tortoise binde is completely integrated in the barrel, similar Milano production, and the nib and feed are friction fit to the section without a sleeve)

    - Pelikan 500 in black (nothing uncommon, it just was missing...)

    - Pelikan 400 Desk pen, Milano production/market (I really like these, and this one came with desk stand an original box)

    - Pelikan 140 grey (although I don't really collect the Pelikan 140, I couldn't get past this super rare and perfect grey example.)

    - 2 Waterman's Desk pens with RED #7 keyhole nibs (As already said, I have a weak point for desk sets and this two examples have both great nibs and at least one of them is in daily use. strange thing: they look like slightly oxidised HR but are not exxcept the section. They are made of dark brown celluloid!)

    - Pilot capless, facetted model from the 90's (this is in my eyes the most beautiful capless ever. since I gave mine to the museum, I always wanted another one).

    - Parker 61 first editon, probably surf green (I'm always working on my 61 collection and try to complete the color range)

    - Parker 61 flighter, U.S.A. made, perfect condition

    Another important project for me was to (almost) complete my Parker "51" MkIII collection:

    only one color is missing.

    Let's see what next year will happen...

    I wish you all the best for 2019!
