Has anyone heard from Brad Torelli recently?  I have four vintage Montblancs with him since September, but have been able to get through to him since late December (I have tried email and phone).  I know he is typically very responsive and his voicemail is now full as well.  Hopefully everything is all right.

I have spoken with him. He is dealing with health issues but is expected to make a full recovery. I would expect communication to be a bit delayed for the time being.

Thanks for confirming. I sent him an email just to check on how he was doing and didnt hear back. Glad to know he is OK

Thank you for the heads up.  I knew he had some medical issues a few months ago, but wasn't sure what happened after that.  I am glad to hear he is doing ok and expected to make a full recovery.

Thanks for letting everyone know. Brad is a class act and such an interesting guy to talk to. Wishing him a speedy recovery and lots of patient customers when he returns to the work bench.

I don't have anything invested in this thread, but I had to say that I'm happy to see people exchanging information and giving the benefit of the doubt to someone before all hell breaks loose.  Kudos to you all for taking the time to understand the situation and helping one another out.

I too sent Brad an email 2 weeks ago.

I knew he was having a health issue that needed surgery and he kept putting it off...I was surprised because he was working in a lot of pain.

Thank God he finally got the help needed and will make a full recovery...
