While I’ve had nibs worked on at pen shows I just sent some pens out for nib work for the first time. Five pens are off to Mike Masuyama who was due back from Japan last week. My new Lamy 2000 went to tune a scratchy nib, the Sheaffer Balance Aspen went to try and address the skipping problem. Another three went to have some nib grinds done. I’ll miss them. I’m going through withdrawal already.

Did you know that there’s a South Korean company that licensed the Pilot name for pens they make and are Pilot (the Japanese company) in name only? I didn’t, until I read about it at Crónicas Estilográficas.
