Richard Binder's Customized Nibs
We will have a rack of Pelikan pens inked and fitted with a variety of
my specialty nibs (italics, stubs, very fine sizes, and so on) for
testing. These are to help people understand what specialty nibs are
all about. richardspens.com
Greg Minuskin traveling from Tustin,Ca will be attending his second DC Fountain Pen Supershow.
Important News. Greg will only be setting up on Thursday and Friday.
Greg is a watch maker that specializes in re-tipping nibs with unusual shapes.
"I am proud tooffer nib retipping services to the pen collector, investor, or restorer. My years as a watchmaker for a prestigious watch brand in Beverly Hills along with my training at the Harvard equivalent of watch making schools, The WOSTEP School in Neuchatel, Switzerland, have honed my intricate skills to branch off into other areas of craftsmanship."
I met Greg at the LA Pen Show and recognized him from watch appraising on the Antique Roadshow. I hope you can zoom in on the Parker 51, two slot, music nib and the "ball" end nib.
