26:04—Emotional attachment to pens What do your fountain pens mean to you? Has this changed over time? Is there a pen that is particularly meaningful, and why? Do you feel more connected to a pen when you have had it for a long time, or when you know its history? What do you think your pens say about you? How would you feel if all your fountain pens were lost in a fire? Would you want to find exact replacements for your favourite pens or would you start over afresh?
