Franklin-Christoph must be one of the worst kept secrets in the fountain pen community. A small North Carolina based company who only sell on line and at US pen shows, yet try finding a fountain pen club around the world where at least a few of their members do not own one or more of their pens.
OK I admit it. I’m
a bit of a Franklin Christoph fanboi. There said it. Being the wrong side of the pond to attend US pen shows, means most of mine have been bought directly from the website, so purchases tend to be carefully thought out and I wait for specific colours, rather than just going for what is available. However, the limited editions, in more recent times made from Jonathon Brooks acrylic rods, can grab me. I ignored two of real interest as I had this pen lined up and all things Kickstarter take time and tend to run late.
