    Dad's old fountain pen

    I was going through old photos and labeling them. Dad had a box that held a lot of things including this old fountain pen. It is a Parker. It is black and may have some accenting in the grooves. I think he might have had this during WWII in the South Pacific. Not really sure how old it is. Don't...

    Sealing a cap

    Hi, One problem I've noticed with the fountain pens that I turn is that the cap does not keep the nib dry for all that long compared to mass-produced fountain pens. I'm thinking of trying silicone to seal the cap and I'm wondering if anyone else has tried this, or has a technique to seal the...

    Emboyna Burl Fountain pen - my first fountain pen

    I have just completed my first fountain pen. I've been sitting on this Windsor kit I got from The Golden Nib (TGN) for a long time. I just did not have the time or tools to make it. It required 31/64" and 33/64" bits, which I finally got. I also splurged on the Amboyna burl blank for this pen. I...
