Just received this fella in the mail. Innocuous posting on auction site that didn't mention the fact it was a broad stub triumph nib. I had been drooling over some pictures of these and resigned myself to never writing with one. Lo and behold, one pops up the next week. No one bid on it the first time around, and it was relisted for $60 cheaper. Ended up getting it for $99, which I thought was pretty good (though I don't know what these typically go for). 

 

Just wanted to share, cause I'm excited about this one. My only bummer is that we're about to be moving and I don't think I have time to get it worked on (new sac, etc) before leaving. It may have to sit mostly unused for way longer than I would like. Alas!

Wonderful, what a great find! Danny Fudge (The Write Pen) in Omaha has restored all my Snorks. You could send it on off to him and have him mail it back to you at your new location. He has a really fast turnaround.

Yep, I actually just got a batch of pens back from Danny. He did a fine job.

The problem is that we're moving to Kenya and getting mail there is a bit problematic because the postal system is...well, awful. We're traveling a bit before the actual transatlantic move, but that also makes mailing difficult.

Alas!

Thanks for that recommendation, PAKMAN!


Hard times don't last, but hard people do.

Thank a Veteran.
