Hi,
Please describe your blackening process. I have a c1925 Wahl that looks like it was scrubbed/sanded and it now oxidized brown with over all low relief of the chasing and imprints. Looks like it has a great nib so it is definatley worth improving.

Richard, I just wanted to thank you for doing such a great job on my P51. As soon as it arrived, I filled it with some Private Reserve "Chocolate" ink and tried it out. Works perfectly, I could not be more satisfied with your work. I also like the short turn-a-round time. I will gladly recommend you to my friends.

Richard

I opened the package containing the Parker Duofold you worked on for me and I could not be happier. I am sure my father simply set that pen aside about fifty years ago and never gave it a second thought. You have restored it to its former glory. It is a wonderful writer I can carry daily as a keepsake reminder of my now departed dad. Thank you so much for that. I would heartily recommend your services to anyone wanting a pen restored.

Thanks Again!

Phil

I am getting pms. There have been some issues on the board it seems. Just a note, I got into an accident and injured my leg so turn around time will be a bit longer now. Please bear with me and thanks.

Just got several pens (one Parker 45 and one Esterbrook J) back and I really appreciate the excellent work and the communication. I will come back if I need such services again.

Thanks Richard

Has anyone heard from hcsk8ter recently? Or maybe, NOT heard from him when one reasonably should? I have a pen in to him and haven't been able to get in touch with him since January 24th.

-->edited to say I heard from him this evening.
