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…
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.

Spring is here!
PS: I love this Pelikan catalog from 1955!
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
