A gentleman came in over the weekend eyeing our collection of rollerball and fountain pens. I showed him a few and asked if he used fountain pens. He said, "Let me show you something...". He pulls out a worn, brown, leather case with curved ridges. Off comes the top and in it is his favorite fountain pens. I commented on how cool the case was and he says it is normally used for cigars!

3/1/07 - Adendum: the owner of the above fountain pens commented on yesterday's post and described each of his pens which I would like to list here for easier reference...

Left to Right:
a Stipula Duetto (yellow), a Monteverde Riviera (blue), a Mont Blanc 146 (black)
and a Libelle Nature (mother of pearl).
