Nathan Tardif, Noodler's Ink -- The New England show is Nathan's one and only pen show appearance. His 'Konrad' pens sold out immediately on his last run, and at this year's show he'll bring hundreds more, in new acrylics, as well as mottled and ripple hard rubber. Stay tuned for Nathan's latest project, a safety pen based on the Waterman 42. He hopes to have a prototype at the show.

UPDATE 6/10/2013. Here's a video of Nathan talking about what he's bringing. Editor's Note: he's perhaps a little alarmist about the Boston Marathon bombings and their effect on future Boston pen shows. We'll carry on regardless.

Venlo Company -- Thomas O’Brien founded Venlo in 2000 because he too cherished his watch collection and wanted to both protect and showcase his timepieces in an equally distinctive fashion.  He chose Florence, Italy, home of the world’s finest leather craftsmen for the inspiration and source of his original watch case collection. Over the years the Venlo Company’s product offering has expanded to include an extensive line of pen cases, valets and cufflink cases.  Luxurious wooden cases were added to compliment the original leather line and always the four fundamentals of product creation guided the way.
