My red, white, and blue pens in celebration of D-Day, 2019! 




I need to get more white pens for next year. I wonder if Aurora or Montegrappa makes any…

Aurora Italian Flag pens will cover red and white for you.


I would keep a black one in there as well.

My mother a WAC landed in France D-Day + 11.

Took the unescorted 35 knot Queen Mary 'troop ship' across the Pond.


In England ran down IKE when she found out she had an English Bike and not American one with coaster breaks. He had a few sharp words to say. (His fault, in looking the wrong way when crossing an English road.)


Sigh, She voted for him anyway.

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.

I was born 44 years to the minute after the Normandy landings begun. 


And I shipped off a pen recovered from a japanese ship sunk jan 30 1944 to wancher for restoration. The postal worker told me that his dad was assigned to protect emperor hirohito after the war. And he actually knew my mom's husband (before she had kids) back in the 70's when he was a NAUI diver in the Pacific


It's been a really "small world" kinda week

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)
