Rapid Fire

I go months without an update, and now two in one week!  I’m dizzy from it! Now appearing are new pages for an Esterbrook pen which predates the Esterbrook J Series which most of us are familiar with– it’s called the Dollar, because otherwise we have to call it three different models, and that seems …

Barnacle Removal

I recently realized that I had a quantity of broken content here, thanks to the combined efforts of Dropbox and Photobuquet.  That’s an intentional misspelling to keep from helping with search engine results because Dropbox merely closed some doors while those others are engaged in piratical monetization by infinite pop-up ad.  I suspect they’ll find …

The Darling Buds of May… and points beyond.

As May showers batter the ground into yielding up June flowers (it’s Canada, folks– our seasons are no respecters of old lyrics), a few fresh updates appear.  The first, and in place long enough that this is now a late announcement, I have put together a page for a pen which I’ve have for more …

The least pressing post to date

In anticipation of the arrival of a Pelikan I have never met before, I was doing a little preliminary research for a new page. I discovered while doing so a few small facts that made me revise entirely the page for the “New Pelikans” of 1965 (until they weren’t really new anymore). Th result has …

Vacation Over!

Gosh, it has been a while since the last update, hasn’t it?  Only small developments– first, a small and under-informative page for Jinhao, which was necessitated by the arrival in my life of two of their pens, the X450 and the 159. There is also an addition to the models of Ohto in the form …

A freshly laid easter egg

I’ve just produced a new little surprise, and hidden it away at the bottom of the page about cartridges where no one will ever look– a chart which, with some caveats, shows what cartridges will fit in which pens.  It won’t change the world, but it might make it a very little bit easier to …

A gain in Delta

This is not an announcement of a spacecraft maneuver, alas; my delta-vee remains as ever at zero.  However, the arrival into my hands of a Delta Fusion 82 called for the creation of a page for it, which moved me to get cooking on the long-fallow page for the company itself.  Why “long-fallow?”  Well, the only …

It’s getting damp in here.

That’s nothing to do with the proverbial April showers, but rather an increase of the Waterman content here.   There is a page for the Charleston and the L’Etalon, both of modern production.  This has also seen an updating of the family album.  There have also been some updates to the main Waterman page and a few …
