The nibmeister at work

I like fountain pens – they are my first choice of writing instruments.

But there are people who LOVE fountain pens. I saw a lot of them the other weekend when I went to a fountain pen show. (Yes. Those are Actual Events that many people attend.)

There were lots of vendors at the show; the most popular items seemed to be vintage pens (and vintage mechanical pencils), but there were new pens, lots of ink and paper options, and pen-specific vendors, like this gentleman. He’s a nibmeister (Yes. That is an Actual Profession) and he’s working on a custom grind on a pen nib.
