Philadelphia Pen Show


82Greg

Recommended Posts

I'm going up tomorrow. I'm looking to pick up a set of Pilot Parallels and look a the Pilot Justus. I want to see the Onotos Magna that Richard Binder has as I'm seriously considering one.

 

Other than that, I'm just looking for a mid-winter break and to test out the two primary Philly Cheesesteak rivals (wit cheese wiz and the other one).

 

Who else is going and what are you looking for?

There is also a post in the shows, meeting forum here on FPN. Its a three day show. I will be there saturday!

FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!<span style='color: #000080'>For Sale:</span> TBA

Have fun all of you. I will be there in spirit, but have a prior commitment (which includes a performance by my choir) that will keep me at the other end of the state this weekend.

I went two years ago. Nice show. Take some cash if you plan to buy. You get better deals that way.

So jealous :( I wanna go!!! /sigh

 

Have fun you guys... and please please (pretty please!) post photos of your new acquisitions (and show pics, if you take them).

 

Let me live vicariously through your pics... we never get any pen shows anywhere near me (and by 'near' I mean anything closer than the UK)...

My suggestion is to skip Wharton St, and take a trip down to Front Street, and Oregon Ave- Tony Luke's Original Store/stand- That's where the best sandwiches are!!

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
