This cool Traveler's Notebook and Traveler's Brass Fountain Pen. (I prefer to scribble my notes on pen and paper to high tech methods :D )

Sometimes low tech is best... although I have a hard time using a fountain pen enough, and it seems I always have a dry cartridge or something/clog, etc., when I go to use them.
Yep... fountain pens are definitely trickier that way. I've found that regular use and high quality inks make a difference.

Grats on the traveler's notebook, Mike. I like leather items like that. :thumbs:

I received several nice things; the guy stuff was silver & whiskey. I included a photo of the leather & canvas "man purse" because it will be manly when it becomes the new leather & canvas "pipe satchel".
Side note: I didn't take a photo of the Predators (of hockey fame) pajama pants, but trust me... they were manly. :thumbs:

Very nice . . . I prefer to write as well.

Always have a pen and pad at hand.

Helps me commit to memory.

I asked both my adult children / families to buy nothing for me . . . rather I prefer something made that like.

My Daughter and family . . . macaroni salad that I very much enjoy.

My Son and family . . . hand carved pipe tamp from an Osage Orange fence post he topped on his property.

Very nice Christmas . . .

This year I was shocked because M'lady never gets me pipe or tobacco related stuff. This year she found an old round Bond Street pipe tobacco tub for my shelf.😁

It’s been about four years in the making but this custom built by Alan Harton out of a bag of parts showed up just after Thanksgiving.

Kudos to you for knowing the basis of the build. It’s .45 Colt and the intent was for it to look like it could have been built 100 years ago by Croft or Segley. The grips are Mammoth ivory, gold bead front sight, and the blue on the grip frame is plum. Built by a master to handle heavy Ruger .45 Colt loads. It’ll push 300 grains 1400 FPS if you want to go that route!!
