One of the advantages of visiting a penshow is meeting people and discussing a shared hobby.

Over dinner, the evening before the show, I had the pleasure to meet the creator of Brixia fountain pen.

Brixia pen has just recently started to make pens, and he learns from experts. When he showed me two of his recent creations, I was very impressed. Relative small in length, and wide for the size, beautiful material and vintage, gold nibs. Many people will love this combination.

The day after, there was the pen show. The show was larger this time, as Kaweco, who organises this show, had invited a penmaker who made wooded pens at the show, drawing and a portrait artist and handwriting analist.

Unfortunately we didn’t make many pictures.

This first one is of the building entrance where the show is held:

Hope to see you there in 2018.
