Last week the Boston Globe published an interview with Crane & Co. creative director John Segal, who mentions a 30 year old Montblanc pen his father gave him.

Thank you so much for this link.

 

I've admired Crane paper since I was a teenager, half a century ago.

 

Quality likes quality, it seems, as Mr. Segal shows.

Thank you, Tom Kellie. 

 

The article brought back fond memories of visiting my Uncle John's print shop as a child. 

 

When I lived in California, I used to buy Crane paper at an excellent independent bookstore, Warwick's. They sell pens, and were my source for refills for my Montblanc Classique and rollerball. 

 

Time to order from Crane's website.
