Superdoo posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHi Everyone! I'm brand new to the FPN and have been enjoying reading all the great discussions and information here. A company called yalebowls.com makes hand turned bowls and pens from old trees (and even bleacher seats) that either die or need to be removed around the Yale University campus. Since I went there, I thought it would be cool to own a fountain pen souvenir. It looks like a kit pen? But what kind of nib is that? "AYACO" something? Is it just a rebranded IPG nib?
