  1. Hi Deb,

    Thank you very much for publishing the links to the various websites. That is very useful to me as I was not aware of a couple of the UK pen sites.

    Kind regards,

    Rui

  2. Deb –

    David Nishimura’s blog: vintagepensblog.blogspot.com is one I read regularly.

    Also, for those with any interest in Japanese writing instruments, (“Bruno Taut’s) cronicas estilograficas is informative.

  3. May I update my previous response to also add the penboard.de web sales site. Tom Westerich and friends always tell us a good bit about the history of the pens offered, but often great stuff about the folks who made it. Today, for instance, I learned that the early Montblanc made pens for the Faber family and for Staedtler – things I had not known previously.
