Fountain pen collecting is a fun hobby and can teach you a lot about history, the economy throughout history, manufacturing, and much more. Pens are one of the few collectibles that do not devalue with normal use so you can actually use that 1920s crescent filler for years without hurting the value of the pen. Using fountain pens can also be a very relaxing experience to help you escape the fast pace of the high tech world we live in today.
While a lot of this site is dedicated to fountain pen collecting, we also collect and use both modern and vintage ballpoints, pencils, and their accessories. If it has to do with writing, we are all about it!
