I had a wonderful lengthy conversation with Pierre the owner of Desiderata Pens at the Michigan Pen Show today. This was the first time I have ever spoken to a pen maker as well as the owner of a small company. Pierre was very humble, insightful and curious about what people thought about the pens he brought. Which brings me to the reason for this post, which is that although Desiderata May be best know for the Daedalus, Pierre makes and is capable of making pens with a very impressive plunger/vaccumatic filling system. These pens can be made to accommodate either a zebra G flex nib (which Pierre makes his own custom feeds for) or a standard nib suitable for everyday use. The fit and finish on the vaccumatic style pens was superb and if Im in the market for a custom pen, I would not hesistate to seek Pierre out.

Sweet sassy molassy, I couldn't be more pleased to read such an accurate, descriptive and magnanimous description of what I do. Thank you very very much.
