Some Favorite Pen Patents


[Posted on L&P and on
FPN on July 20, 2006.]
        While I was preparing the two volumes of my patent book, I collected a group of favorite patents and designs and goofy images.  I wrote some articles about these patents and posted them on various pen message boards in a series I titled “Some Of My Favorite Pen Patents”, so if you want to see a few examples of the type of research that the book makes possible, take a look at the posts in the following 43 links, and the rest of the posts in this blog.  I have rearranged and renumbered the threads in this series so that they are now roughly in chronological order.
