Good heavens, it’s been a more than a year since I posted one of these updates! This is not to say that this site hasn’t seen new material in the intervening time, I’ve just been… delinquent in giving notice.
I blame the lingering tendrils of depression and the universal shadow of COVID.
So, what’s been happening here during the long absence?
In pens, there’s a Flighter-alike addition to my clump of Wing Sung 601s. I finally got a Conklin Crescent Filler… and it’s younger than my own son. I offer two demonstrations of my inability to track down much in the way of useful information about two new(ish) pen makers from China, PenBBS and Moonman, and some better-informed (by direct experience) pages about the PenBBS 487, which has a very clever filler, and the Moonman M2, which has none at all.
I remain unenthusiastic about pen repair, alas (even my own), so while I’m resuming communication, I am still enduring that self-imposed exile.
