I'm looking for a nice visconti too this year. I just don't know which one.

I think I might be interested in a Opera typhoon and/or Wall street. these pens are older editions but I really like them.

 

I will also have a look at a homo sapiens steel age (large size) if there is one available.

 

It would be nice to meet each other there. Any recognition's?

Hmmm, I have to think about that.... How about I have a fountainpen in my breast pocket???  :lticaptd:

 

 

One of the sumgais last year was a Wallstreet Gold nib....

Hope that I can make a good deal there :)

I'm hoping to be there and then onto Waterloo for the Belgian Pen Show on Sunday staying overnight with my brother in Nuenen, just got to get the North East Pen Show and the London Writing Equipment Show out of the way first. I'll be wearing my FPN and WES badges.

Hi D.ick,

 

Yes, it would be nice indeed. Of course having to build my own miniature version of the Delta Works after another flooding scare at the end of June, having problems with accessing a computer due to malfunctions of the body parts required to do so, and trying to keep FPN running regardless doesn't help :). And as to sleeping: I doubt I will ever catch up <ROFL>.

 

Warm regards, Wim

I'll probably visit the show too. It will be my first penshow to visit.

 

I'm wondering... does anyone know if there will be a possibility to have one of my nibs tuned? I'm thinking on having one of my Mediums adjusted into an italic (stub)... But i'm not sure the show is the right place to bring it for that.


Warm regards,  *thINK*

As far as I know both Fountainbel en Wimg will be there. Both are quite able to do nibwork, though they not consider themselves full-time nibmeisters.

 

I am fairly sure Fountainbel (Francis) will not work on site. I am not sure about Wimg. But they can take the pen and send it back to you. I don't know about their backlog, though.

I'll also be joining you guys and girls in Tilburg. Probably without my wallet, cause Dennis is offering way too many interesting pens.

Great fun, the show. It was really nice to meet a bunch of FPNers. Pity I couldn't get there till fairly late, but I must say  had a wonderful time, discussing pens with all.

 

I was planning on taking a lot of photographs, but I was getting so involved with the different discussions, that I completely forgot to do so.

Would anybody want to share any pictures? I would love to see them!

Thanking you in advance!

Warmest regards, Wim

Hello, 

 

it was realy a nice pen show with good old and new pens and accessories.

 

We visited it the first time.

It is not as large as other well known pen shows, but I think the quality is important and not 

the dimension.

In a very nice cafeteria you could try beside coffee and cookies your acuirements.

 

If it will continued next year, we will be there.

 

And......new pens leave The Netherlands together with us..:-)

Thanks to Dennis from La Couronne du Comte!
