There is a group in Cincinnati which is devoted to promoting and keeping the tradition of fountain pens alive and it’s called the Porkopolis Penners. I just put up their blog for them so go there and take a look. It’s very interesting. I hope that some of the members will be writing articles about: the great pen companies of the past in Cincinnati (there were quite a few of them), how to go to a flea market and score some wonderful pens, what some of the new and great fountain pens are (many under $50, too),paper, and ink too. So take a trip to a slower and more graceful time, in a graceful place like Cincinnati. Explore Porkopolis Penners.
