My grandfather was big on writing letters to people. I mean, that makes sense since email wasn't a thing yet. He had this pen collection with a bunch of very cool pens. My favorite was his quill pen.
Not a lot of people use, or even have, quill pens anymore. His was very special to him. It had been passed on from his father who got it as an anniversary gift from his wife (my great-grandmother). It was a beautiful peacock quill feather pen that I loved to touch and feel between my fingers. It was so sad when it got ruined in a basement flood!
What his pen looked like.
Quill dipped in ink.

What a beautiful assortment of feathered quill pens.
