Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 468

Today we're featuring a couple of new fountain pens that Stuart brought to our last meeting, along with his thoughts on them....

Stuart writes: "(This is) my Faber-Castell Ondoro with the smoked oak barrel, a handsome large pen. The Fine steel nib is a smooth and precise writer."

"The closeup shot (above) shows the beauty of the grained wood, which is nice in the hand, warm and textured."

"Here's the Parker Sonnet I bought at Van Pen’s January grand reopening celebration.  It has a brushed stainless steel barrel and cap with gold-plated trim and a black section, a very handsome and traditional look."

"The nib, stainless steel with gold plating, is smooth, and the pen is very comfortable in the hand."

Our thanks to Stuart for his ongoing contributions to our pen club's virtual "show & tell!" I'll be posting a review of my own recent acquisition later this week.

***Don't forget our in-person meeting this Thursday (March 16)--- details here!
