    Ab Conklin Chicago

    Hello everyone, Does anyone have any information about the AB Conklin brand? Though the nib is marked "Chicago," this pen and nib look like they predate the 1938 Chicago acquisition of the Conklin Pen Company of Toledo by quite a few years. I'm quite interested in the story of this pen, because it is in excellent condition, and seems to be a high quality pen with a very flexible nib.

    Pelikan Nib Repair In Chicago?

    I just received an M800 Fine from Cult Pens that has an awful rough spot. Before I go thru the hassle of sending back to the UK for an exchange, can anyone suggest a shop in the Chicago area that could fix the nib? I'd prefer to pay a nibmeister to smooth it out than trans Atlantic shipping. Thanks, Mark
  3. On August 26, 2019 this pen was pickpocketed out of my bag in a CTA bus. I've never been pickpocketed in Chicago so it comes as a shock to me but the pen was missing when I got home. Such a shame, it was one of the best pens I've handled and I even sold my other pens to fund this relatively big purchase. This particular ST Dupont Olympio L is not common and can be easily identified by the diamondhead textured cap. If you see one going around please let me know. It had blue ink on that day.
  4. The regular monthly meeting of the Chicago Pen Club North Branch will be this coming Sunday, September 9. It's starting at the earlier-than-usual time of 1 pm, and will be at Reprise Coffee Roasters, 950 Green Bay Road, in Winnetka. Show, tell, buy, sell, trade or just chat. I'll have some new inks from San Francisco for people to try: three from Taccia and one from Robert Oster, via the San Francisco Pen Posse. I also picked up some test kits for us, featuring 12 different Japanese papers from Yamamoto Paper. If you've never been to our meetups, feel free to DM or email me, and I'll fill in
  5. Good news, Chicago: we are starting a North Branch of the Chicago Pen Club, so those of us on the north side and north of the city can meet with fellow pen fans closer to home. Our first meeting of the North Branch of the Chicago Pen Club will be Sunday, February 11 at 1 pm at Reprise Coffee Roaster, 950 Green Bay Road, Winnetka. Here is a link to the Reprise website. Reprise is a small, locally-owned coffee roaster, and the Winnetka store offers coffee drinks, gourmet teas and snacks, as well as beans to take home (a Valentine's gift idea, right there). If you drive, there's free parking. I
  6. Ink View: Ivy 108 - Papier Plume’s Chicago Pen Show Exclusive! I first came to know about this and the Lake Michigan Summer a couple of weeks ago while conversing with Papier Plume on new upcoming inks. At that point the inks weer already created and I was just at the tail end of it. I was lucky enough to receive a small sample of each. As teh main batch hadn't been done yet, I got what was left from what was sent to other reviewers. Still I was happy to tryout these inks, specially since I dont have an Ink Hookup at the Chicago Show to get me some these ink bottles. Still! Many thanks to P

  9. Howdy, I have been a member since 2014, but just now read the rules for this site. I am a poet, composer, fiber artist, and former computer security geek. I love to write, and I love to write with fountain pens. I have been using cheap fountain pens since elementary school. But in the 1980's I discovered Waterman and Parker pens. I have a tiny fountain pen collection now. Waterman (set with Rollerball pen, paperwork and cartridges but, alsa, no box ),Parker,Staedtler Calligraphy set, 2 vintage Schaeffer's, a ton of nibs and a few dip pen holders. I aspire to find a vintage 1970's Lamy 25

    Chicago Is Closing Down Another Pen Shop

    Chicago has never been a too-friendly city for fountain pen users. Just this year (I think... I pass in front of it every day and my memory's non too clear), Glibertson & Clybourn sold its last pen and closed down permanently. Now, Paradise Pens in Oak Brook is closing. So any Chicagoans, get there before April 1st, because everything must go!
  11. Hello again folks! Many thanks go to all of you who have taken my flex fountain pen survey. I've got some prototypes made, and some of them are about to go out to the 7 lucky people who took said survey! However, is anyone in Chicago by chance? I'm looking for some people to partake in a flex fountain pen focus group to help me work out some small details in the designs. We'll meet somewhere, I pull out my wares, ask a few questions. We discuss, and then I generously compensate you for your time! If you're in Chicago and open to doing a focus group (you'll be generously compensated for y
  12. My friend, an events planner, is about to lose her calligrapher to retirement! She is in need of an EXPERT calligrapher located in Chicago who can approximate several fonts (to match wedding invitations, etc.). She does a LOT of events so this could be a good gig for the right person. Pam Spitzner
