Thanks for posting this.

 

It is most satisfying to see out mania hobby receiving world-wide recognition.

A good video to show the initiated at least. Great to see Richard getting the press, not sure he needs more customers though!

Although I would question his statement of, only 6 people in the world that does what he does????

How is he defining it so tight that only 6 people are in that club?

He did say that there's only about 6 or so people who do ALL the things he does. Interesting video. First time I have ever seen the man.

In the other topic about this video some were speculating that he's talking about his students :-)

How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed. Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. One to ignore who uses 'I' four times in each post. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly. Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

And probably all the things he does, professionally.

It is cool to see him, but I wondered at that comment as well.  Was he referring to repairing/restoring pens and grinding nibs (I thought only Mottishaw and Minuskin re-tip pens in the US correct?)  Maybe he means also having his own pens (Gate City)?

 

Because surely there are a heck of a lot of people out there in the world that repair/restore and grind.

 

In any case, I loved the video, wished it was longer, and drooled at that pen he wrote with.  I guess that's a "Binderized" nib, eh?  My Pelikan certainly doesn't write like that.

I puzzled over what was meamt there FS, must admit that a Pernod or Ricard would go down very well right now
