Tilburg Pen Show 2014 Carry

When you attend a pen show, it’s a good idea to take your own notebook for sampling pens and for trying everyone else’s pens! It’s nice to be able to take it home with you to see what you liked (for your next pen show, or for your next buy). Sometimes paper is provided by vendors, but not always.

I took a Colsen Keane No. 410 Scotch Grunge Field Notes Cover with me with a Clairefontaine Back to Basics Bob Foundation Waves pocket notebook, yes, in pink, and a Field Notes kraft cover notebook. I also carried a Tactile Turn Shaker in copper, for jotting things down. As for fountain pens (not pictured), I had a Kaweco Sport Calligraphy Pen with a 1.9 mm nib inked with Conway Stewart Kingsand, a Visconti Opera Crystal 1.3 mm stub inked with Kaweco Paradise Blue, an Edison Menlo 1.1 mm inked with Noodler’s Liberty’s Elysium, and a Sailor 1911 Standard Music nib inked with Sailor Jentle Apricot.

Tilburg Pen Show 2014 List

I’ll be attending the Tilburg Pen Show again this year on Saturday, September 27th, 2014. It will be held at the Natuurmuseum Brabant in Tilburg, where I was born!

I’m not looking for a whole lot in particular…because there may be some big ticket items that will drain me.

  • Visconti Opera Master Demo Amber fountain pen.
  • Kaweco safety filler (for Mr. Schneider).
  • Parker Duofold with button filler


I hope the Professor makes an appearance this year – he’s great to chat with at pen shows. Although Windy can be a bit obnoxious…

What else do I need?
