This is what we think......
Collecting fountain pens is more than just having a load of shiny pens in a showcase.
It is researching the history of the pens, finding out how they were assembled and repairing them that makes collecting truly fascinating.
I'll admit not all vintage pens are suited to be used. There are some very rare pens that should be locked up for their own safety but most of the vintage pens should be out and about for you to enjoy. For one thing is certain...no modern pen can beat a vintage fountain pen.
