This finished quite a while back and the pens have gone.

The Tintin pen was an Inoxcrom which was released as promo material for the movie, I believe.

It was just a plastic, basic type pen.

It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
 
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.

 

My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.

Yes, sorry -- I'm the one who got the TinTin pen.  I wanted it for a friend of mine who is a HUGE fan of the comics (and she's half Spanish so the manufacturer is an added bonus).  I just need to make sure the International Standard converter I bought awhile back will fit it.

Several years ago she gave me a pen that she found on Freecycle, here in Pittsburgh, and snagged to for me as a joke (it's a Pelikan M200, probably from the 1990s, and it has the Bayer logo imprint on it.  The pen was probably some corporate gift (Bayer has a big facility in the area), and the recipient said, "Oh, a fountain pen.... Uh, that's nice, I guess...." and threw it in a desk drawer.  I don't think the pen had ever been inked before my friend gave it to me -- and I don't think she realized that it's probably worth about $100 US....  So when I saw Ian the Jock's giveaway, I was going "Hey, I'd rather have that one over the Chinese pen...."  My friend would go nuts over it, even if she never uses it.

I was sort of panicking a few days ago because I couldn't remember where it was in the house -- the last time I'd seen it was in September, on my kitchen counter -- which got cleared because I had to make up a bunch of marzipan fruit for things and my husband cleared the counter for me....  And of course I had forgotten to bring it with me to the Ohio Pen Show a couple of weeks ago to make sure I got the correct type of converter (apparently there are both both push in and screw in models...).
