I too am an admirer of anything simple yet beautiful. No moving parts is, well... :cloud9:

Something that will outlive myself is great, and the E.D system is the embodiment of that idea.

So glad you like it, Shawn! It was the least I could do. May it serve you as well as the Hoover is serving me!

That is a seriously cool pen! But, I've gotta ask, what does a kid do, exactly, in a tire shop?

My dad used to work for Goodyear before they shut the doors here in town, and I'd help out by putting up shipments of tires. I'd also organize the junk tires for the recyclers to come get. And they'd let me help out with mounting and balancing and all that stuff.

Wow what an old review!  :)

 

The ink....

uhmm.... maybe Noodler's Eel blue?  I think it was the only blue I had at the time besides Parker Quink Turquoise, and I don't think this is that.

 

The 149 - yeah it was pretty nice - not nearly as nice as yours that you let me use - but it was okay.  I'll have to get another one day.  :)
