I’m researching the history of the steel pen (dip pens, to most of you), especially as they were made in the United States. As I research through old sources I find bits and bobs of things I find interesting, sometimes about steel pens, sometimes about other topics.
I decided I needed a place to capture some of these. Some will make it into my research, some won’t, but if I find it interesting, there may be someone else who may enjoy it as well.
So, be prepared for the trivial, the obscure, the odd and an occasional interesting bit.

Thank you, Andrew! Very interesting and informative essay and website.
I grew up in the house owned by Gyulo Armeny, a partner in the firm of Armeny & Marion. I would be very interested in acquiring a pen made by this firm. Armeny died in 1920 and the partnership was dissolved at that time. Any readers of this site who know of an available Armeny & marion pen, please contact me. A brief summary of Mr Armeny’s life (and death) can be found on my web site in the entry “Biography of a House.”
