    I wish.

    With the addition of a handful of Parker 21 pens to practice repair on, the collection is numbering around 40 pens and a few matching pencils. Of those 4 are slated for giveaway to anyone who shows an interest.

    I'm trying to avoid overflowing my 50-slot pen case. To that end I keep a list of pens that are next on the choppingóor, rather, auctionóblock. I sell them off one or two at a time.

    I also have a list of my favorite writers that I'm least likely to part with. They are an odd bunch: Montblanc 221s, Wing Sung 3008, Parker 51, Parker 45s, Parker 21, an Arnold, Eversharp Skyline, a couple of Esterbrook LJs, and a Metropolitan.

    More pens than most, but a lot less than most of the rest.

    I periodically give mine away. I use them, but only keep the ones I like.
    So now, I am on 3. Until I next see one I want.
    Cheaper than therapy.

    Alright, I did a rough count. I think I have between 80 and 100. I have a 60 pen display case. I keep my nice pens in it. Then I have about 30 or 40 kick around pens that I keep in a harbor freight wooden tool chest.

    Right now? 12 pens: 9 modern and 3 vintage. None of them are spectacular or anything. The number is a combination of how hard it is to source pens from this country and the almost complete lack of positive engagement in the community (something I've worked on to improve but to no avail, alas).
