What?! No pictures of all these pens? I'd love to see what they look like.

Paddrino, you are in Denver? Have you looked into the Colorado Pen Posse?

 

haha touche' Picture below.

 

Yep, I'm in south Denver (highlands ranch). I have heard of the Pen Posse, but haven't looked much into the group.

        Wow! You made some beautiful selections! I love the variety. Have you had time to do any significant writing with them?

 

        We of the Pen Posse are pretty fun (and we help Ed Capizzi put on the Pen Show). Join us! I think there's a Facebook page with more information (I'm probably one of the last three people on the planet who haven't joined Facebook). Greg Liverman can tell more than I can; he's been a member longer than I. But the people are great and the meetings give everyone a chance to try out everyone else's pens.

I have gone through 2 converters with the Visconti opera so far. Had to do a significant amount of cleaning on it as it had some blue ink residue crusted up in the pen. All is working well now though :) The Visconti gold nibs are wonderful writers.

 

I have gone though 1 converter fill with the Franklin Christoph. That nib is gorgeous, and I am still amazed that it has such smoothness for the sharp stub qualities. Amazing writer.

 

I have gone through 1 converter fill with the Sailor. Amazing fine nib! I am typically more of a Pilot guy, but this nib is amazing right out of the box.

 

I just filled up with green striped Sheaffer balance yesterday, and will be writing with it as my primary writer this coming week.

 

I will have to look the pen posse on Facebook! Thanks for the recommendation. :)

The Pen Posse currently runs off email notifications via a MailChimp list that Ed Capizzi maintains for the group. Send an email to ed.capizzi@coloradopenshow.com to get on the mailing list.

 

There is a Facebook page (https://www.facebook...loradopenposse/ ), but it does not get updated with meeting notices. Hey, we do pens, not computers :) :)

​Also, if you filled out the prize drawing form, there was a box to check for Posse mailings -0 that should get you on the list too.

 

Bottom line, send Ed an email.

 

 

Greg


The more I know about computers, the more I like my pens.
