I saw some posts that said "no" recently from other SF based forum members, but have heard no official report...I continue to hope but don't know.

Thanks for your response, although I hope your information turns out untrue.

I saw this question before leaving for Pen Posse yesterday and almost answered, "Definitely not." Then, I thought I would ask at Pen Posse, since there have been many discussions about how to make the SF Pen Show happen, expecting a confirmation of my original answer.

 

But it sounds like there might be a Hail Mary pass in play.

 

It is mid-August. Can someone pull off the SF Pen Show in two months?

 

I say it is unlikely, but... I have seen what committed wills can achieve. So... I'm less sure now that there will not be a pen show here in October. This is turning out to be a cliffhanger.

I have e-mailed a vendor I hoped to see at the SF Pen Show, curious about whether he has had any communication from last year's sponsor.

 

I imagine it would be a challenge to get vendors lined up on such short notice.

FWIW, I'd suggest making the SF show something like the Venice Bienniale - happens every 2 years, but is the premier event of the year when it happens. IOW, look at making 2014 an absolute kick-a$$ event!

I exchanged e-mails with Bert Oser who organized the SF Pen Show the last two years. He is definitely not doing it again but says some (unidentified) others are considering organizing one.

 

Any progress with this?

Yeah. I had heard that Bert definitely wasn't interested this year.

 

I did hear that rumor, too, about someone else considering doing it, and if so, Pen Posse is certainly willing and ready to help promote it, so... TIME'S AWASTIN'!

 

We're just standing by, waiting for the word....

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
