From ChappysNibs
Jump to navigation Jump to search


O.K. Chapman (Chappy) was an avid collector of nibs for dip pens. He collected an extraordinary number of nibs, plus several inkwells, nib boxes, a few fountain pens, and other nib ephemra as well. The chappysnibs Website is intended as an online version of Chappy's collection--to share with others images and details of those nibs, and ideally, to share the vision and enthusiasm that Chappy brought to everything he did.

At this time, I am not selling items from the collection, although that might change someday.

I have taken many photographs, but the process of collecting meta-data about each nib, and posting each set, is taking some time.

  • The site includes an inventory of Chappy's collection
  • I'm about half-way through taking photographs of these nibs
  • Chappy lived in Montana, which is why there are some Montana-specific nibs in his collection
  • I imagine that the future of will include opening the site up--to allow others to share their own photographs and descriptions. But for now, the site is limited to Chappy's own nibs.
