Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – October 20, 2019

Esterbrook Dip-less pen

Still on the low-end of fountain pen usage these days. I did start journaling again but it’s been sporadic at best. Mostly the usual quick notes so my Vanishing Point has gotten the most use.

I also reworked my pen accumulation page, identifying my core pens. I have 20 core Sheaffer Pens and 10 non-Sheaffer core pens which does still seem a little high. Especially since there’s another seven hangers-on. Still, with over 100 formerly owned pens, I’m happy with the results of my fountain pen decluttering.

For the most part, I think my pen sales are over once the current listing sell. There’s still a bunch of pens under “All the Rest”, but they don’t seem worth the effort. I seem to recall having sold some of them but I’ve been too lazy to research them, eventually I’ll clean up my records. Plus I now have a “1 in, 1 out” rule. Plus, I am reconsidering my keep all Sheaffers policy. Although, if i do decide to sell it will be in person. That’s a good excuse to hit some shows next year.

A lot of links this week, but then again it is three weeks worth of them.
