A Lucky Find From The San Francisco Pen Show


Recommended Posts

So I was just browsing through table after table when I got to Danny Aarons' table. And then this honking big red pen caught my eye. It seemed familiar, but I couldn't be sure, so I held it up and asked Danny if it was the pen I was thinking of, a long-sold out limited edition of the Churchill. And it was! There was someone else who was interested in it as well, so I held on to it tightly and asked Danny to hold on it for me while I browsed through the rest of the show.


Enough words, onto the pictures of the Churchill in Red Ripple ebonite...

Very nice, and good photography as well, very vibrant colours.


Looks indeed like an IM almost, but actually that is not bad, in my opinion



Enjoy that beauty

Wonderful! Enjoy it in good health.


So sad that the Churchill is no longer with us...

Too many pens; too little writing.

congrats on the pen :thumbup:

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

So glad I got to see this. I quite like how the end of the barrel tapers. Wonderful photography too!

just found one of these up for sale in, of all places, manila. grabbed it within minutes of hearing about it. ;) i already have a bracket-brown churchill, and had a mint black chased ebonite one some months ago but stupidly sold it, so i won't ever let this one go.

finally, a pic. i'm loving the limited-edition churchill in red ripple that i got from a friend here in manila last saturday. a finicky filler, as often noted about these otherwise gorgeous pens, but can be tamed by an eyedropper. goes well with my home-brewed sepia:

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
