I was recently contacted by John Taylor who, along with his wife Nanci, had the good fortune to tour the Pelikan factory in Voehrum/Peine, Germany during a trip abroad this past January. John and his wife reside on the East Coast of the United States and have only been into pens in a big way for the last year or two. Not having a platform of his own, John asked if I might host a recap of their experience here at The Perch. While I have not entertained a post written by a guest author previously, I thought that it may be of interest to those who, like myself, are unable to make the pilgrimage to Pelikan’s factory. If you do have the means and the opportunity, I will include some pertinent links at the bottom of this post which will help you facilitate a similar visit. Without further ado, I give you John’s write-up. I hope that you enjoy it and please, leave a comment to let us know what you think.
