Pens

This post is about some pens I saw on Saturday.  These are pens, old and new.  Neither of them are mine, though.

First, the old ones.  I was at an historical re-creation event.  The Seattle branch of the SCA put on an Arts and Sciences event.  One of the artisan displays included this set of quill pens she had cut herself along with ink she had made.

Now the new:  One of the people with whom I chatted had with her this fountain pen she had just been given as a gift.  When closed, it was quite short and she liked how it wrote.  It would seem to be a nice, compact, pen to carry every day and is inexpensive.  Goulet Pens do not have it.  It is the Tasche FF-10T by Ohto, Japan.  It can normally be had at JetPens but they are out of stock.  One review indicated it has a German-made nib.  Tasche is German for “pocket”.

If I order it from Jet Pens, I may also order these pencil caps, which protect the sharpened lead.  They interlock and I think they are quite clever.
