    Default FPGeeks will be at the DC Super Show! See you there!

    The Washington DC Super Show starts August 7th, which means thereís only 13 days until the largest pen show in the world is underway! (Man, Iíve got a lot to do before then!)

    Iíll be arriving Thursday afternoon and staying through Sunday, so Iíll get to experience everything the show has to offer. Iíve been to a few shows before: Ohio, Chicago a couple of times, and LA, but from what Iíve heard that wonít be enough to prepare me for the sensory overload that is the DC Super Show.


    Tim Hoffman will be at the show as well, helping me gather photos and videos of all thatís happening. If you see either of us be sure to stop us and say ďhi.Ē Weíll have a few FPGeeks buttons to pass out, but you gotta ask for one.


    In the evenings you should be able to find us at the bar swapping stories and sharing pens. Feel free to drop by and join in!


    There will be a special meet and greet on Saturday evening that Iíll post more details of early next week. Itíll be a fun event that you wonít want to miss!


    There are a lot of items I want to see, but these few are a must:



    I know Classic Pens will be there with a boatload of Nakayas and Vanness Pen will have a stock of Akkerman. The only thing I think Iíll have a problem finding are the Sailor inks.


    So, will you be at the DC Show? Let us know in the comments and also what youíre looking for while youíre there!

    I will bring my Ripple. You know, in case you don't find any others to fondle! :-) I am so glad you will get to be there!

    Prepare yourself for an onslaught of flattering offers in an attempt to finagle that pen out of your collection.

    When will you be there Tracy? Saturday? I soo soo want to take a look at all that Italian goodness!

    As for me, I have the intention of NOT BUYING ANY INK. Seriously, I have too much, and I'm facing the possible prospect of having to ship it back to Europe. (I've accumulated 11 bottles of ink since I arrived in the us for a one year masters course).

    A signature line Edison and a nice Sheaffer balance user are my main objectives. Although a good price on some vintage wahl eversharp, pelikan or Mont Blanc may steer me off course. And I may not be able to resist kingdom note inks if they somehow make an appearance.
    "What are moon-letters?" asked the hobbit full of excitement. He loved maps, as I have told you before; and he also loved runes and letters, and cunning handwriting, though when he wrote himself it was a bit thin and spidery.

    I can wait to meet the "man" - angels are singing here

    My very first stop is the Edison booth. Then I'm checking out the ice and smoke at FC booth. I'm trying not to buy it, so figured if I see it I can make a decision. I'm on the outlook for vintage cheapies. I need to see Richard binder for a nib fix. I'm guessing my budget will be blown in a day. Oh yeah I'm looking for ink.

    They'll have the Gentle line but I doubt they'll have the Kobe or BungBox.

    It sounds like you need a case with more capacity. I'd say 48 at least.

    I should be there for the weekend portion of the show! And I think I want to hunt down some awesome vintage pens, Akkerman inks, and perhaps check out some Visconti/Omas/Delta pens. Just so I can see what they feel like. Pretty stoked!!!
