    Something sounds wrong here..

    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    @Lloyd @FredRydr

    I paid for the pen back in 2013 as well. I've recently gotten in touch with Ernest and Brian Gray both (as the Mina is an Edison Pens model); things are progressing, albeit slower than I expected. I don't blame Ernest as I commissioned a rather intricate design in terms of maki-e. It will be beautiful once it's done, and I look forward to reviewing it...in earnest.

    EDIT: OH no...pings don't work on forums like they do on twitter...

    Hi,

    two british pens to be restored:
    A Mabie Todd Swan 1042 blue marble.
    It's incomplete, but hopefully with a fine flex #4 nib that can be saved.
    And as a lucky (?) bycatch a green marbled Wyvern 404 (new to me, looks a bit like a Parker 51).

    Best
