I Collect Fountain Pens

I have liked stationary since I was a child, I would browse stationary stores for hours, mainly I bought pencils, rubbers and paper. I still have a few pens from when I was young but most of my fountain pens I have collected over the last 20 years. I started with Parkers then Watermans and Pelikans but I have collected many Italian pens( Aurora,Montegrappa,Delta,Visconti and Marlen) and Japanese pens(PIlot,Sailor,Platinum). I have a nice collection of Elysse pens which are unfortunately no longer made.
I collect because I like to collect, to find something rare, to get a bargain, to create order even. I enjoy looking at my pens, how they feel and smell( celluliod!) but I also use them. I always have a few inked and use a different one every few days, whether it is a limited edition or a "school pen".
