What's up at Ravens March.

Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements

Divided Loyalties

Posted by Dirck on 7 November, 2014

I’m a little split today on what to throw onto the projector.  This is not, however, a new experience, so I make a double feature.

First, because it’s FOUNTAIN PEN DAY!! how about some footage of a pen being made pretty much from scratch?  This from Romillo Pens, who one nervously notes do not suggest how much their pens cost (and thus assume “lots and lots”).

Next, a little something to honour an event coming up next week– because I think it’s pretty cool that we’ve sent a lander to a comet, and because blending fantasy and science is also something that tickles me:

Today’s pen: Platinum PKB-2000 (SF-ish model number aside, it’s a celebration of the day; a pen I’ve had under care for a long time, finally well enough to return to duty!)
Today’s ink: Jentle blue-black
