Here's the story. I was recently sent a very nice paper & ink package by Amber, which I really enjoy, and was wondering the best way to pay it forward.

I also have a Parker / Eversharp Big E, and some old Super Quink cartridges that I'd be willing to pass on to a good home.

The pen was in pieces when I got it, but after some restoration seems to work fine.

As it's December, I'll take the first 12 interested, and put the names into a hat from which I'll draw the winner.

Good luck.

I love the idea of the big E, it's for left handers, so they don't smear ink as much. I am very excited to learn about vintage pens, because it's just so cool. It's wonderful that you're doing this Pay it Forward, would this count as an entry?

Yes it does.

I see that I put the wrong title up there. The pen IS a Parker / Eversharp Big E.

I'll take entries until Saturday, then draw to see who gets the pen. 

Thanks to those who have shown interest so far.

After a scientific drawing ( my six year old granddaughter pulled numbers out of a hat) a winner has been determined. King Roach gets it! Pm has been sent.

I'll be doing another one soon!!

Thanks for all the interest  :D
