Has anyone tried one of these Vindolanda pens made from 2000 year old oak dug up at the archaeological site in northeast England? I think its a cartridge converter pen. https://www.vindolanda.com/shop/vindolanda-wood-ink-pen From a Reddit post I found it looks like a F/M-ish nib. https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/csjvti/my_first_fountain_pen_made_by_david_wayper_out_of/
A friend has a Swan fountain pen in the family that needs re-saccing. Does anyone know of a good repair person who could possibly do this for them? They are in the Edinburgh/Glasgow-ish part of Scotland. (I realize the whole concept of E/G part is going to strike strangely - what I mean is that they could easily get to a pen person in either city, or any place near either city.) Failing that, who would be the best person to send this pen to by mail, if it's got to go that way? Thank you very much. I treasure the friend, the friend treasures the pen, any help is appreciated. T
