This post makes me hungry for a Monte Christo AND a Peter's Special Scramble.

You DO have a return ticket...

San Francisco International Pen Show - The next great pen show is on schedule for August 27-28-29, 2021. If we all do what we need to do...you can Book your travel and tables and make SF 2021 the Return. 
 

 My PM box is usually full. Just email me: my last name at the google mail address.

Yes, I do.

 

Looking forward to Pen Posse at Peter's TOOT SWEET thereafter.

Plan on being here August 22-24 ish. You will not regret it.

Are we to understand that August 22-24 are the three days many have been waiting to hear about since 2012?

Maybe I'm the one who's befuddled. I suspected, in my romantic way, that the August dates just might refer to a San Francisco pen show.

 

I am seeing as through a browser window, darkly. But I did have a sense that at least three or four people went away from the last San Francisco show looking forward to another one. And being disappointed at not hearing the dates for 2013.

I think you might be on to something.

Strictly speaking, we are still in the realm of nods, winks, hints, and intimations in general. No concrete announcement. Let me therefore seize this still-plastic moment to put forward my other conjecture: In honor of Lisa, a three-day Society for Creative Anachronism tournament in which the competitors would smite one another with staves painted in the form of Nakaya fountain pens. I may have guessed wrong, though.

Hi all,

 

My wife and I are heading to the LA pen show for the first time this year and what better way to prepare than to come to the pre- and maybe post-show Pen Posse meetings!

 

Please let us know if there's been any change to the planned meet up times.. Do people usually bring pens or other goodies to look at? We're trying to decide what to bring to the Posse, let alone the show!

Times are as initially planned. Bring it all then leave most at home.

 

What is it that the Smitties are looking for? We may have it here.

Haha,, I think what we're looking for most is a good ol' fashioned pen show! It's been too long since our last.. SF two years ago I think.. And August seems awfully far away!

 

I have a few specific items in mind.. Some rare mechanical pencils, some Snorkel and Vac browsing..

 

I think She might be after any Safaris missing from the herd... and maybe a 51.. and there was some mention of maki-e :o

Anything special in 51s?

Sounds great, we'll see you there! I don't think we have any particular 51 in mind, although we'd probably tend towards the earlier Aeros.

Any hope of minor pen surgery? Equivalent of periodontal treatment? In a sudden access of eBay insanity, I bought a Cross Century nib unit. One extra might come in handy, since one that I possess is sort of imperfect.

 

Nib arrives with nick in one tine, rough behavior in L to R strokes. That has been fixed. Am told the inside surfaces of the tines would benefit from smoothing. Is this an intervention that might take place in the middle of LA show frenzy, giant apple pie consumption, sadly watching Loren defer his gratification w/r/t that MB barrel?

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
