I'll have to get down to the museum, soon.
If I drive instead of taking the streetcar, I can avoid the the B&M with it's inks, and the Subway cookie trap.
OH, yes............got to get down town.
I've shown pictures before of Thomas's pen museum...it's all his stuff, perhaps 1/3 is all there is space for. He really had to twist townhall's arm to get use of a Art Nouveau 1900's fire station...across from the oldest castle in the Heidelberg area...one from 12-1300.
Once Heidelberg was the pen capital of the world.
Had he been able to put in an industrial gitter second floor, he'd have lots more exhibits. But some drunk climbed up on a city square monument and fell off killing himself, so the city wasn't going to let Thomas build something high enough that a drunk visiting the fountain pen museum would climb on the railing and fall off.............drunks don't visit fountain pen museum's but city hall is full of ball point users; so they don't know better.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
