USk: Pelikan Hub 2018

The 2018 Pelikan Hub happened Friday night.  My first time, and wow I will never miss another.  It happened at the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne.  Oddly, my sketch while waiting for it to start (after dinner) is in Robert Oster’s Motor Oil ink, a favorite sketch ink.

There was swag, and I was unprepared for the generosity of the samples:
I came home with many Pelikan ink and paper samples,
and swapped inks with a few peeps.
I scored a bottle of a favorite ink, Pelikan Edelstein Olivine.
Next year will bring a couple of inks to share of my own!
I brought some of my pens, and sat and tried other’s pens and offered my own,
especially my Moonman with the architect’s nib.
Mitchell has also become a lover of fountain pens, and had his own
lovely night meeting other crazy pen collectors and trying pens.
He fell in love with a couple of inks, and has a collector sending him a bottle
of discontinued ink as we speak.  How cool is THAT?

I’ve found my peeps, man!  Crazy pen collectors…
Find your closest local Fountain Pen group…
Sign up to go to the Pelikan Hub — it happens around the world,
but signups happen in Spring…

    Thanks for reporting on the Pelikan hub. I’ve considered going to our Ohio one for a couple of years now, but thought it was only for Pelikan pen owners and I have none thus far. But I do have a number of other fountain pens by various manufacturer’s – including a Moonman which I love! Think I’ll have to try this next year for sure.


I love hearing from visitors!
