Pen Realm [penrealm.com]
My name is Kirk Speer and I have been doing nib grinding, nib repair and tuning for a little over 4 years now. I first received recognition through social media platforms like Reddit (u/loverslanders and u/penrealm) and Instagram. In March of 2020 (2 weeks before Covid shutdowns) I quit my daytime job as a project manager for a construction company to pursue this business full time. In addition to nib work, I also carry many retail brands of pens, paper, and inks including TWSBI, Kilk, Scribo, Leonardo, Akkerman, Colorverse, Platinum, Opus88, Midori, Kokuyo, Tomoe River, Scribe, Scribe Inks, and more.

Bertram’s Inkwell [bertramsinkwell.com]
In many ways, Bertram’s Inkwell has gone beyond being just a store, evolving into a community of sorts where pen lovers drop in to chat with the staff, shmooze with each other and possibly buy something. Bert Oser occasionally brews a cup of coffee for a visitor. And so life in the Inkwell goes on. Young Bert’s dream has reached fruition, and midlife Bert doesn’t see his future self embarking on any major life changes. He likes what he’s been doing for the past twenty-five years and plans to continue on the same path. Bert Oser is, in short, a happy man — and you can’t ask for much more than that.

Laban [laban.com]
Laban has been advancing steadily in the rise and fall of the pen industry. Mastering the technique of pen-making, from classical Raden to modern acrylic resin, no matter how much stationery was developed, we must return to a simple thing: the original intention. The intention of making a pen, it is close to the palm of the writer. The intention of using a pen, it is created to conveying the thoughts. A pen is a tool, but what is written is the affection that modern technology cannot translate. Refill your soul by writing. At forty had no doubts. It’s all about the original intention.

Emmanuel Caltagirone ASC [thepenfamily.com]
A pen company by collectors for collectors. This is the ethos behind the ASC brand. Its founder, Emmanuel Caltagirone, believes a fountain pen must be both functional and beautiful. Born in Paris to a family of reputable pen makers, fountain pens were destined to be in his future.  His father, Nicolas Caltagirone, is the well-known figure behind the reputable Waterman and Cartier pen brands. When the OMAS luxury pen brand was up for sale, Emmanuel knew it would be his crown jewel. OMAS had something other pen makers covet – beautiful and rare celluloid material.  ASC continues to stretch the boundaries where beauty and tradition intersect. Creating connections from one generation to the next. Such is the legacy of Armando Simoni Club.

I do custom grinds, repairs, restoration, tuning, modification, and a lot of talking. If you’ve got a question, I’ve got an answer, regardless of whether it’s off the top of my head or filed away neatly in my brain from years of scouring countless catalogues, websites, forums, and repair manuals. As much as I enjoy working on my own pens, I find the satisfactory grin of a fellow pen addict to be the most magical part of the whole process. Come by and see me at the Miami show- I’ll be more than happy to chat, tinker, or help keep the ink flowing in any way I can.

Divine Island Design [DivineIslandDesign.com]
Divine Island Design is a local business in Big Pine Key, Florida that was started in 2017. We specialize in custom, handmade projects from woods and acrylics. The owners are Braxton & Erica Frankenbery. The Florida Keys was our paradise for over 10 years as we vacationed in the Marathon area. In February 2016, we moved from Columbus, Ohio to Big Pine Key. We left our home, family and Erica left her job as a microbiologist to move to paradise. We knew God had a plan for us because all we needed was provided. Erica started working as a bank teller. Braxton continues to work as a project manager in telecom. However, a piece still seemed to be missing. We used Braxton’s hobby of woodworking and Erica’s hobby of socializing to start Divine Island Design. With almost 20 years of woodworking experience, we use our talents and share them with the rest of the Florida Keys. Braxton’s beautiful projects and Erica’s skill for networking has allowed us to start our dream business. Our store is located at 29928 Overseas Highway, Big Pine Key, FL 33043. We are next to Shell gas station. Come see us at the Miami Pen Show 2021.
