If you want a matching pencil pendemonium has a matching one. i can send a link if you want.

Thanks, I took a look, but at that price I'd rather be spending the money on pens. Especially since they're asking more than the *original (not sale) price for the pen I got.
If I were a collector (I know, the dreaded "C-word :lol:) I would definitely be interested, because it really did look as if it were a real match to the pen I have (albeit possibly in better condition). But I'm more interested in having a (hopefully) working pen with a really cool fill system that I can use.

The repair of a Snorkel is generally not as difficult as some make it seem.

I have two and they are beautiful writers. I found one in the wild. The other one was in a co-worker's desk at home, he suspects it had belonged to his late father-in-law. It was uninked and still in the box with matching pencil. I about died when he showed it to me. I think it was a combination of my giddy reaction and my generally friendly demeanor that caused it to be transferred to my possession for a price that was so low it was almost criminal.

Edited to remove the pesky "t" that snuck in when I wasn't looking.
