Here's a short list of links I've found up to now. Please feel free to add in reply, and I'll update the list.

 

 


Please join the Mabie Todd Swan project where I am trying to sort out the undocumented mess that is American Mabie Todd's from the 1930's. The last pens that MT seemed to advertise were the "Eternal" pens, and then the company put out a wide range of different styles, shapes, sizes and filling systems before eventually closing up shop. I invite you to post your pictures of your American pens

Perhaps the pencil blogs could be included as a resource for MT Fyne Poynt?

I've been reading older Pennant magazines and I saw a description of David Moak's book and cd, and I see the link for his website in this thread.

 

The web site is seems to be down now and I can find very little about the book and CD.

 

Does anyone know if it's still available?  It sounds like a great resource. I'm just discovering some of the wonderful swan pens.

I was told that David Moak sold everything off a few years back.  The book is out of print. It comes up on ebay every month or two.  

I also happen to know that as recently as a few months ago there were two copies of the  book  at The Fountain Pen Shop in Monrovia (I see you are at least in the right state).  Call Fred (owner) on the phone. Great guy.
