About

I’m always searching for the perfect pen. Does it exist? Do I already own it? Let’s sort through the pen cups I have on my desk, in the kitchen, next to my comfy chair in the living room, in the bedroom, and in the craft/spare room, and examine the good, the bad, the losers, and the winners. Let’s face it, I own a lot of pens. I might as well write about them.

  1. Love it! The perfect pen like the perfect ink just does not exist. The quest is endless and only moderated by the depth and volume of a shrinking bank account.
    Let the quest go on!!!!

  2. Goodness I thought I was the only one on a quest for the pen which would make me contented when I wrote on the page. Ten pots of pens and 7 very expensive ones, all kept in their boxes for fear of dropping them or worse. I’ve book marked this site, great find.

  3. I have the perfect use for a couple of the Retro 51 aluminum packaging tubes. I make super lightweight alcohol backpacking stoves, and they are just perfect for the inner “chimney” or afterburner. Here’s an example: http://blogericious.blogspot.com/2012/05/heirloom-stove.html
    I have tried pretty much everything else to make the afterburner, but the Retro 51 tubes are just perfect. Happy to re-imburse you for shipping, and I’m a fellow pen geek.

  4. Ahhh… The perfect pen is the one in hand, and the perfect ink is the one that has not run dry. The question, of course, is what is THIS pen with THIS ink perfect FOR?! :)

    Just came across your blog; and as a total, first-fountain-pen newbie, am loving what you’re sharing. Thanks!

  5. Hi! Just found your blog today via the recommended links in my WordPress reader….and I love it! So much to read here, and all about pens…I’ll be enjoying my stay for a long, long time. Keep on posting! =D

  6. Hello! Glad I’ve found your blog, it’s a great read. I’m indulging myself with reading about what I want (not work) between Christmas and New Year, so your pages are just the thing. Have a happy new year!

  7. I’m really enjoying your blog! I, too, agree that “the stripey bits” are the most appealing thing about those Parker vacumatics. :) Let me know if you need any more penpals! :)
