NIBS! We all know that the most important part of any fountain pen is the nib, right? Some may disagree, but for all of you nib enthusiasts, this month’s topic will be “How Fountain Pen Nibs Are Made And Crafted”   Frank will give a presentation and it will be a good one!

Bring examples of your favorite nibs (inked so we can try them out :)), as well as any unique ones that you may have.

Hopefully we will have another poem from Verla this month and an update on the Filigree pen from John, as well.

See you on Friday the 17th at 6:30!

July Meeting Summary

The July meeting’s theme was Montblanc Pens and their history.  Francis put on an excellent slide presentation of the history of what we now know as Montblanc.  I have the slides and will be downloading them shortly.  After the presentation, many members showed a few of their pens and collections.  Here are just a few photos.
