    Default Thanks for having me!

    Hello folks,

    I'm David from Vermont in the USA, I've had a fountain pen problem since my grade school years, which is a long time ago now... I have a few pens from before the self-filling days, lots of early to mid 1900s pens and a decent set of American and Japanese pens from the 60s through 80s. I also have a massive backlog of pens needing a re-sac

    While I like collecting and history as well as the challenge of basic restoration, I'm more about just having cool pens to write with every day, since with few exceptions I loathe ballpoints!

    Yeah, I like celluloid and hard rubber propelling pencils too...

    It's a disease, but you all know that already

    I've posted on Pentrace since early days, but took a break for years, assuming that my collection was stable and wouldn't need increasing or discussing, but it seems I was overly optimistic on that count, so here I am on yet another forum: good to meet you all!

    Sorry for the terrible image quality, I'm a skilled photographer, but don't have a good copy setup at home ...and my phone camera is, well, junk really.
