Michael Sull’s Commemorative Pen Block

IMG_7402

At last count, I have about 23 oblique penholders, ranging from tall to short to thin and bulky, and I use them all! I have two vintage pen racks (you can catch a glimpse of one here) but those are kind of flimsy and the pens keep knocking on to one another…

This was a lovely Christmas gift from none other but Michael Sull himself, and he must have mind reading powers to see my predicament. He makes these awesome pen blocks with holes of different size drilled in and it holds pens very nicely.

Mine even had an engraving for the 25th anniversary of the Spencerian Saga. Awesome!!!
