Hi.

 

I'm Paul from the London/Kent borders in the UK.

 

My FP interest was rekindled when we visited my parents and were presented with a batch of vintage pens, including my father's Parker Victory IV and my old school pen, a Parker 51.

 

My intention is to research, refurbish (ha!).and collect.

 

I've bought about 20 pens in the past 2 months including Conway Stewarts, Wyverns and Burnhams (a London company) as well as Parker, Esterbrook and a few third tier US pens.

 

Although I've been reflushing, disassembling, cleaning and lightly polishing the pens, I've yet to embark on a resaccing. Please wish me luck.

 

I'd forgotten all about ink-stained fingers... until now!

 

Best.

 

Paul

Welcome from one of the former colonies!

Breathe.  Take one step at a time.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  You're not getting older, you are only moving through time.  Be calm and positive.
