  1. Hey everyone- nice to be here! I have been perusing this site for a long time but wanted to introduce myself officially. I'm here in cobb county- seems to be a bit of a pen desert but there's always Ebay & the Atlanta show... I have a few good Pelikans (vintage & new- my favorite pen is a 2013 tortoise 800), an older Omas Extra lucens, & a smattering of vintage user-grade Parkers. Looking to add a Montblanc Jules Verne or Kafka to the collection the next few months Glad to be a part of this great community =) I can't even count how many times I have found an answer to a question that I have had by digging around here! Thanks to all of you guys for your enthusiasm for -and dedication to- this hobby!

    Shopping For A First Pelikan

    The Atlanta Pen Show is two weeks away and in addition to ending my death grip by learning the forefinger-up method, I've spent the last month monitoring sales of Pelikan 140s of various stripes. I've got a budget of $140 (could stretch to $160) and want a daily writer. I want a pen with a medium or broad nib, wet flow, a smooth piston, and a striped barrel (for ink view). Most importantly, I want one in good enough condition so I don't have to have it serviced for at least a couple years, but I have come looking for advice. Oh, wise bird-men (and bird-women) of the board, please answer me these questions three: (1) What should I look for when testing vintage Pelikans, besides nib feel and brassing? (2) If the selection is poor, how do I resist instant gratification and wait for a better one to come along? (3) If you were me, would you be looking at 140s or another breed of bird?
  3. Hey all, just letting everyone know that the next meeting of the Atlanta ITP pen group is this coming THURSDAY, JUNE 6th AT 7 PM. It will be a dinner meeting, downtown at Trader Vics.
  4. Heres' the news for the 5th Atlanta ITP Pen Posse meeting (sorry so little notice, the board being down and other factors have kind of shortened the lead in time): Date: Saturday, May 4th Time: We are shooting for early afternoon, between 1-1:30 Location: Zesto on Piedmont, in "Buckhead" (essentially, the Lindberg Plaza area, since Artlite is right there as well) Please post here of you have any questions, comments, etc. I hope everyone can make it!
