Hello and welcome to FPN.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome home.  Pull up a stump and set a spell.  Oxidation is one of those issues we love to argue about.

This is just one of the many discussions we had concerning the restoration on hard rubber pens

Welcome !   

 

An excellent hard rubber fountain pen !  The material reacts with its environment, and shows its age.  

From photographs of my mother, in the 1950's, I know that she was a pretty young woman.  Now, she is 90,  She is wrinkled and frail.  I can appreciate the vintage beauty that was not given, rather cultivated over the years.  I hope that you will not destroy the beauty of decades, attempting to restore the past.  Your Moore is lovely.  Use it lovingly.  Write with joy.

Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
