Pens in Portland


What better way to spend a sweltering Sunday than in a brewery with a bunch of pen friends?

Beer flowed modestly, pizza sizzled, and pens and pen friends gathered. I was happy to see some friends, meet some new folks, and acquire a small handful of (three) pens.

Here are a few scenes from the show followed by my finds.

Michael McNeil and John Schwab




So, what did I get? A Pelikan M800. It needs a bit of work, but is sound. A yellow band Waterman's red ripple 7, and an ASCO (Aurora sub-brand) in lapis.
