We were reminded that we adopted a Red and White theme last year for the Olympics; so why not a Pink, Red and White theme (pink, red or white coloured pens, inks, and whatever else in your collection that qualifies) in honour of St. Valentine ? After all, it will be another 11 years (that’s 2026!) before Valentine’s Day falls on Saturday again (but who is counting)!!
As always, thanks go to our official club photographer, Rick!!
Another great turnout for February 14, 2015, in spite of the snow, wind and bitter cold!
Who would have guessed at the variety of pens in pink, red and white – quite surprising really!
And the inks as well!
Who knew that G. Lalo made ink – and that’s quite a bottle!
Let’s check out a couple of labelled scans of all that red and reddish inks:
Quite a variety indeed!
Maybe some day we will have the technology whereby you can touch the screen and smell the De Atramentis Lotus (scented) ink!
Now, let’s check out the pens – some Esterbrooks, a Parker Duofold, and a couple of Sheaffers;
to the white pens in the group – Sailor Sapporo, Pelikan M400 , Kaweco Student Pen and Lamy Safari;
a whole crew of Lamys – some Safaris and a Studio; and
finally, check out the cool clips on these pens!
