  1. Here's a weird question for the next Q&A... is there a fountain pen with an stamp seal at the end of the cap used to place a physical mark impression on a paper indicating that a specific pen was used? Basically its a pen that you can sign with but you can tap the end of the cap on the paper near the signature to use as an added security feature. It's like a wax seal mark but inverted to leave a nearly invisible mark.

  2. I think Omas, William Shakespeare - probably a limited edition, has that property.

  3. You are correct. Thanks for the fast reply.

  4. Thanks a lot for sharing this useful information and interesting posts from you. keep it up

  8. I like the idea of these and also the Davenport desk (seems to take less space than a classic bureau) but want to update dimensions and make minor tweaks to their functionality to bring the design and function up to date. Perhaps lowering our expectations and making the first out of chipboard and veneer is the way to go till more affluent times!

  9. An idea I have thought about is a light weight writing box / light box - you can get A4 sized writing surfaces that are illuminated by LED and quite thin. That way this could be the writing surface when turned off (or you could have a removable leather topper) but you could also use this for tracing etc. If only I progressed beyond making a wooden spoon in woodwork!
