Okay, I think it's safe to say I'm either a collector or an addict.  In all honesty I don't need any of the pens I have.  My main use of handwriting is taking minutes at one meeting a month.  I've been looking for more reasons to use handwriting.


I think I left a couple of pens out of my previous count.  Those plus some recent purchases brings my pen count up to fifteen, five of which haven't arrived yet.  Two Jinhaos, a Baoer, and a Kaweco Classic Sport are in transit to me, and I just grabbed a Conklin Duragraph from Goulet Pens bottom shelf.  I really need to stop browsing pens online.

How is this for an answer. When I worked in inventory control at a printer I had to have a primary pallet, a backup pallet and a spare pallet for each pocket for the offline mailer. The rest of the product was in automatic storage system.


So my answer is 3 with plenty of more on the way.
