Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 181

Today we're featuring a handsome, affordable fountain pen made by Osprey Pens of California--the Osprey 'Scholar'--purchased by Stuart from the Vancouver Pen Shop last month ...

Stuart: "Here’s some shots of my Osprey.  I like it very much - nice writer and comfortable in the hand."

  "And I like the way the brand name is rendered on the clip, bold and classic!"


"This pen may be as close as I ever get to a vintage Parker Duofold.  They are pricey!"

According to their website: "The Osprey Scholar was created in honor of the American School System. Machined from solid Acrylic rod stock, it is designed to be a rugged and dependable fountain pen for students and professionals! Available in many vibrant and classic colors, the Scholar has a long and slender feel. It scores well in stress, crack, and drop tests due to its solid construction. This fountain pen was designed to keep writing for decades with minimal maintenance." The site also notes that the first batch of Scholar fountain pens was created in 2016 for a class in California :)

 Stuart--many thanks, as always, for sharing your newest acquisitions with us on our blog!
