My main interest is in pens that are generally regarded as difficult to restore, and pens that require the manufacture of reproduction parts.
Restored pens are offered for sale. Many letters of appreciation have been received (see ‘Testimonials’).
I plan to add technical articles (written for the Journal of the Writing Equipment Society) to those already existing in the technical section of this site, and to continue the development of new repair tools that will make easier some of the more daunting repair tasks.
The BBC1 ‘Repair Shop’ Series 4 Episode 20 and One Hour Episode 16 show my happy day with a sentimentally valued Wyvern pen.
Special Edition Pen
This is the prototype of my special edition pen (the Dunnfordpark). Only 12 were produced (handmade by me) using the Parker Centennial nib. They were priced at £550.
The Dunnfordwater pen.
I have finished a further Special Edition - this time only 7 pens using large Watermans nibs. They are complete waiting engraving. Pictures soon. hoping for completion in late summer.
