For those of you who have never seen or handled one of his pens, I can tell you that they are eye popping. I saw and handled all his pens including the CS Great Exhibition.
Now to the heading of this thread.
When I met him and shook hands, I told him that I knew of him, and he asked where and how I had come across his name. I said that I was a member of the FPN and that I had read about him there among other places. He then said to me When you are on the FPN next time, would you mind mentioning my name and I said Not at all, why he replied Well, it is nice to get my name around so that people will know who I am.
To which I replied What! You are a living legend there are people on the FPN all around the world that would happily sell their Grandmothers to get their hands on one of your pens. See what I mean about him being unassuming.
Worst of all, I found out that I live only about 2 miles from where he is located.
So, for those of you who have really never heard of Henry Simpole I am doing what he asked me to do, and mentioning his name. More power to you Henry.
