Free E-Newsletter

(This page revised May 8, 2017)

On the first of each month, we publish Nib Noise, a free email newsletter. This is not spam; we will not send Nib Noise to you unless you subscribe, and we’ll stop sending it to you if you unsubscribe.

In addition to short articles about what’s new for sale, where the next pen show is, and other items of interes, each issue of Nib Noise contains Broad Strokes, which is usually a new article that Richard has added to the Reference Pages section.

The most recent issue of Nib Noise is posted below — except that we don’t post it here until a few days after we’ve mailed it to subscribers, so for the first few days of the month you’ll be looking at last month’s issue.

*** Tale of the Trays ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've put together an interesting Pen Show Tray for May. The Waterman No.
7 Yellow that I previewed on Facebook is there, and there are a passel
of other cool pens that you just gotta have. Check it out, and then be
there at 10 p.m. Eastern time when the Tray goes live!

I put up a new Attic Tray a few minutes ago, and it's loaded with great
restorable pens at good prices.

The nib blowout sale continues. Be sure to scroll down to Richard's Nib
Shop. You can't miss it. And if you buy one of the Esties on Barbara's
Tray, you might just want a brand new nib for it.

*** The Washington DC Fountain Pen SuperShow... ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------

...is still up in the air as I write this. Bob Johnson has announced
that the show will NOT be at the venue where it has been for the past
several years, but he has not announced the new venue or the dates for
the show. We will learn where and when at just about the same time as
you will.

*** Broad Strokes ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you missed it last month, don't forget to check out my story of John
Joseph Durkovitz and his WASP Clipper. Known to his Army buddies as
Durk, John served in the 2nd Chemical Mortar Battalion in World War II,
and it's a fascinating tale. To learn more about his experiences, you
might want to order a copy of this book:

Finding My Father's War, by Walter J. Eldredge

It's a great read. Here's a link to it on Amazon:

*** Pens That Write Right! ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unless otherwise requested at the time of sale or unless otherwise noted
in Barbara's Attic, I personally tune each new nib we sell at no extra
charge before shipment. I test the nib in a pen filled with Waterman
Mysterious Blue ink and write with it on paper of better than average
quality, adjusting as necessary to bring it up to the RichardsPens.com
"factory" standard for smoothness and flow.

If you order a new nib from Barbara's Attic with customization (gold
nibs only), I'll modify the nib (for an extra charge), and we will ship
it without any extra delay.
