floaty pen collection


Over the last twenty years or so, I've collected these souvenir pens on my travels. They come from Eskesen, a company in Denmark. The original pens, you may remember, are the naked man or naked woman. You tip the pen and their underwear disappear. I thought this was a great novelty when I was a kid. From this, they created little scenes in the pens from places all over the world, some are very obscure. I have well over 100 pens in my collection.

Wow that's a lot of pens!
Do you still use any of them?

I never use them. They are mostly pretty travel trophies. They are a great, inexpensive souvenir.
