    Default Meet Boris

    A discussion about an elegant sterling inkwell in another subform had me looking at my inkwells, elegant and not-so-elegant. I came across good ol' Boris, and I thought I should introduce him.

    I suspect he's a hedgehog from the Black Forest. He came to me at the end of one of the Columbus Ohio pen shows, when vendors don't want to take home their oddities.

    Looks like a meatball press.

    That's much too nice an inkwell to be called Boris, a name much in the news at the moment!

    Boris looks to me much more like a Poodle than a hedgehog...
