NYC 2010 Pen Show Purchases (minus 1)
From Left to Right:
Parker Duofold striped red and blue, it carries the #2 so I believe it's from 1942 (and the pen I went to the show to find)
Waterman NOS red metallic lacquer medium nib;
Waterman NOS brown metallic lacquer with a medium nib;
a Twsbi fine nib (and met the twisby folks as well);
a Moore lever filler from around 1937 to 1940 (what an amazing flex nib);
a vintage Sheaffer Balance purchased from Ron Zorn with a cursive italic nib made by Pendleton Brown;
a Monteverde Invincia Color Fusion in Avenger Yellow, medium nib made into a cursive italic by PB;
Pilot Namiki 823 Smoke with a medium nib;
finally, a green retrofitted Parker Vacumatic made into a twist ballpen/rollerball by Carl Seidl of Pens of Dist-INK-tion.
The one pen missing is the Edison Huron bulb filler with a fine steel nib, should be available in 6 weeks or so.
Above right is a picture of Pendleton Brown (to the left) and another Fountain Pen Network member (I think he's Jonathan). PB remade four nibs for me, three into cursive italics and one is a stubby something-not really an italic, not really a stub, something in-between but not either. I love it. :)
