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 than a year, the Retro 51 Tornado. What was the delay? Dragging my feet, mainly, because I to do that page I also had to do a very little bit of research into Retro 51 itself, and I’ve been devoting my powers to other mental challenges (I can barely tie my own shoes, so much am I thinking of other things).
Thanks to a new client, I have a plethora of other new things; a page for the not-quite-Duofolds that Parker was offering in the latter part of the 1920s, a Waterman pen which in the case of the specific example is a source of identification headaches, and a new photo of the top-end Parker 45 (which is not an oxymoron).
Another person seeking repairs also gave me a chance to take a picture of the rather uncommon Peacock Blue Snorkel, which my picture fails entirely to really capture, but you can see that it’s different from the Pastel Blue, at least.
