    How A Stunning Fountain Pen Is Made

    Some folks here would know I collect pens - well, I came across this site and thought I'd share it as it illustrates the craft that goes into making a pen - enjoy!

      ain't it though? One thing abt rep pens that's totally unbeatable in the world of watches ......:

      if it doesn't write nicely, get a $2 refill and all is well

      Australia has only one serious pen maker (thousands of hobbyists) - Curtis Pens Australia. no surprise that the majority of his commissions are for US customers.

      I will attach a pic of one of their pens




      ... Here ya go - they cost from around $300 - $4000 for something truly one-off .... I didn't see the value in them until I held one - these things are art (except they're useful ) No surprise that the guy was a jewellery maker and silversmith for 40 years!
