I've had them for years: two nameless vintage black pens with glass nibs that need new sacs but otherwise in good condition. Somehow they never managed to find the way to my repair desk, so I'd like to pass them on to someone who will restore and use them. So, if you can resac a pen and promise to keep it or PIF (not sell it), please send me a note and I'll send you a pen (not both). If by Saturday there are more than two interested members, the lucky ones will be drawn out of a hat and their pens will be sent on Monday.

I was just learning about these types of pens on SBRE's sight. I would love to be considered for one! Thanks for the generous PIF

I'm very interested in trying a glass nib, and have someone in mind who can do the repair work.

I am an artist and I would really put a glass nibbed fountian pen to good use. I can restore it myself too. Please consider me. I am also in the EU.

I'd very gladly take one if I'd be so lucky.

Alexander, I have wanted to tell you how much fun I have had with this pen and I haven't used it yet.  First I had a client come in and talk about uses for "old" stuff and the pen was a hot topic, then my kids came in and we got to do show and tell. Then I stared at it and drooled over it.  Finally, I sent to GWeimer who is restoring it for me.  I'll show it to you when it gets back.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

That's the beauty of old stuff: lots to do with it, lots to discuss ... Enjoy.
