Hello, 

 

Have you seen the latest interviews with these companiess? Interestingly Stipula was called Alba at the beginning and Aurora is building a huge pen museum.  I wonder if anyone knows more about this. Some interesting pics from the factories. Especially the nib production steps i think.

Anticipating possible visit(s) to Europe and side trips to Italy, have bookmarked this site. A valuable source for adding to my pen knowledge. Thanks,


Yours,
Randal

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

Wow, interesting behind the scenes articles. Really appreciate the very high production values, with the well taken and comprehensive photos and also the written articles.

 

I have been a fan of the Stipula brand pens for quite a while now as  their pens demonstrate a unique philosophy not found in other pen companies. But they seem to have been silent for quite a while now. It's so great to be given a peak into where they are going and what they have done. I am glad to read they are not in receivership. Also VERY interesting to know they make their own nibs. I did not know that. I thought they bought off the shelf JOWO nibs and finished them.

Is it just me or is the site also not working for everyone else?
