    Thanks, Jon,

    I know about the affordability. But we have worked hard for decades and so splurging occasionally is totally OK for us. Whether it is a trip to overseas or a nice FP or some other passion. To us, money is not just to be saved, but used to acquire memories.

    I proposed to my wife at the Alamo. Sitting together on the southwest lawn under this huge live oak tree that I can still take her to, I will never forget her expression or her response. When I received the pen yesterday, I handed it to her and she took a look at it and her voice cracked a little when she spoke. She saw the live oak that I had Mr. Kullock engrave on his engraving/cut of the Alamo and that seemed to be enough. Mission accomplished!

    I remember the day I proposed I told her prior to visiting the Alamo that morning.... "Today, another man will fall at the Alamo"! She didn't understand at that moment and questioned me all the way there. "Is there a reenactment battle going on? Is there some kind of fair"? Of course, she did understand afterward.

    And today, I am still a fallen man...
    Good for you and I suspect that luck was also involved. Many folks work had for decades, make little and barely survive.

    We are finally discovering the true story of the Alamo, but for you it was a special day. Beautiful pen and enjoy.

    This pen is extremely well done and being hand engraved and etched makes it that much more splendid. Mr. Kullock does superb work and I will be ordering two more with our pen club putting in orders for at least 4. It has a Broad Stub nib.

    I find it delightful to purchase an engaging work of art that also feeds a parallel passion that is personally meaningful.

    Photo credits: These are Ariel's photos. But my pen is every bit as lovely!

    Ariel Kullock is an Argentine silversmith & artist who created the pen for the poster. He has made many Parker 51 caps with intricate silver overlays besides making custom replacement barrels & sections for Parker 51s, which he refers to as "Fantasy" editions.

    I have purchased several of his replacement Fantasy parts for 51s because I preferred the colors he had available. He also has offered replacement jewels for same that complement the caps because they are also unique & not merely replacement jewels for original Parker jewels offered.
