I attended my first pen show in Chicago of 2016. Since that time, I have dedicated myself to collecting, restoring, and learning all that I can about vintage pens. I am convinced that even the best modern pen cannot compete with the heritage and splendor of of an 80-year old fountain pen.
I am not an expert on vintage pens. Always learning. As a matter of fact, in many ways I still feel like a beginner in this hobby. I attend several pen shows each year and one of my favorite things about the shows are the wonderful people that I have met along the way.
Although I hope to provide a service to those many miles away, buying a pen online is no substitute to attending a live show. I would encourage you: attend a pen show, talk to people who are equally passionate about pens, listen, and have fun.
If you have a question about a specific pen on my site, or if you would like to have a discussion about fountain pens, feel free to email me at: email@example.com. I can also be reached by phone at 618.889.4618.
