About the Vintage Nib

My name is Mark Whitcher and I am a full-time freelance web developer and a part-time vintage fountain pen restorer and collector.

I love finding old fountain pens, restoring them so they write great and look great doing it. I pay for this expensive hobby of mine by selling many of the pens that I’ve restored. It’s a fun way to see and handle a bunch of great pens.

Since I’m handling a fair number of great pens, and becoming intimately acquainted with them in the process, I thought I would blog about some of the pens I’ve worked on and put up some pictures for everyone to enjoy.

If you’ve got a story or you just want to talk about pens, I’d love to hear from you.
