Today I’d like to say thank you to a friend that has done a great favor to me. This pen is a #Pelikan 120 that I found partially destroyed in a flea market. The finial and the clip were missing and the body fas full of micro scratches. I cleaned it, reassembled what was disassembled, greased the piston, but wasn’t enough. I asked Abhi of @ospreypens if he could do something about it and he did the magic: he turned a new finial, put a new clip and buffed the pen to be shiny as new. I know, it’s not the original clip or finial but I don’t care. It’s a pen that has been used for over 50 years probably used by children in schools, and when I acquired it was good for nothing. Now it’s one of my most reliable writers. It’s not original maybe, but for me it doesn’t mean nothing, this pen now has a second chance.
