About Me & My Pen Collection
a pen enthusiast and collector. One of the reasons I would like this
note to be published and distributed is because I am interested
in receiving any information available on pens and all other writing
utensils in Israel (also pre-State) that anybody may have.
The collection is continuously growing, as is my research. Therefore,
if you are interested in the subjects dealt with here, I recommend that
you visit the website periodically to get more details.
My pen collection is my most dedicated hobby and has been for many,
many years. Its main value is sentimental. I collect various categories
of writing utensils. The main core of my collection is Israeli (and
pre-Israel British mandate Palestine) made writing utensils (see further
in a series of articles with pictures). Other fields of interest are
white metal pens (i.e. white gold, silver, stainless steel and titanium).
Usually, when available, I like to have the five modes of writing as
a set (fountain pen, mechanical pencil, ballpoint, roller and felt tip).
I also collect non-fountain pens’ handles for the old fashioned
nibs. These I like for their artistic attributes. And finally, I collect
"pen like" or "combined purpose" writing instruments
such as a ball pen with a letter opener, pens with a cigarette lighter
Some of the more interesting items in my Israeli (and pre-Israel British
mandate Palestine) made writing utensils are presented in the links above.
