When I'm on vacation (or an extended work trip), I'll typically prep at least one short post linking to some past content that still has relevance, and that newer readers of the blog might not have had the opportunity to enjoy the first time around. This week, I'll take a look back at my "Vintage Pen Primer" series, which offers my thoughts on the ins and outs of vintage pens.
- Vintage Pen Primer, Part I: Initial Thoughts on Vintage Pens
- Vintage Pen Primer, Part II: The Parker 51
- Vintage Pen Primer, Part III: Inks for Vintage Pens
- Vintage Pen Primer, Part IV: The Parker Vacumatic
I've been thinking a lot about getting back into vintage to some degree, now that pen show season is in full swing, and the 2017 D.C. Pen Show is on the horizon. I'd like to find a "focus" for collecting, though, and not revert to the "little bit of everything" style I had assumed the last time I dabbled in vintage. Vacs, maybe?
