In my Shirtpocket August 2017: Sailor Professional Gear Slim (Sapporo) x 2

As my beloved wife borrowed my Pelikan M120N, (and refused to return it) ,  for editing musical scores, I picked up my Sapporos. Wow! I love the combination of a narrow but juicy line! See you in September! 

In my Shirtpocket, July 2017: Pelikan M200 Green Marbled with Richard Binder Italic Nib

Sometimes when one is thinking of friends, or pens, it is easy to forget those who always have been there for you, like this pen that I have been using daily at work for the last ten years. I’m using it for signing documents, and for writing fancy retirement- and birthday cards…

The ink is my choice for this summer:

J. Herbin “Vert Empire”

See you in August for another pen…

In my Shirtpocket, June 2017: Sailor Professional Gear Naginata togi, NMF

This time I share with you a pen with one of the now hard to get, Sailor specialty nibs, the Naginata togi. With this nib you can write thin or broad lines depending of the writing angle. Sorry for the pictures, I’m writing this on a train between Gothenburg and Stockholm. 

In my Shirtpocket, May 2017: Pelikan 140 (late production) 

For some reason I’m very fond of the torpedo-shaped Pelikans, and if it is a vintage pen, just better.

My 140 is of a late production with a narrow clip, engraving on the cap band and no Günther Wagner on the body.

For more information: (From Herrn DOMINIC ROTHEMEL’S excellent Pelikan site)

PS: I love this Pelikan catalog from 1955!

Stockholm, Sweden, April 2017

You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Matthew 7:16-20 NKJV
