Though there is the occasional collector’s item most of the pens that I sell will be used by their buyers. That, I think, is as it should be. Unlike more complex elderly mechanisms, fountain pens are easily restored to working condition and it’s right that they should be used and loved again. Doubtless they will be employed for business and private correspondence, journalling and the like.
There’s another area of fountain pen use that I try to supply, and that’s calligraphy. I source the occasional Osmiroid or Sheaffer calligraphy pen and they are usually snapped up pretty quickly. I’ve been trying to develop a better calligraphy section and today I’ll be uploading a variety of sets with cartridges. I think they will be excellent for the beginner or for the more practiced writer.
See what you think, all ye of the elegant letter-forms and swooping lines!
