The WRITING INSTRUMENT MUSEUM (The WIM) traces its origin to 2004 when Long-time Pen Collector and restorer Syd Saperstein took advantage of the then new opportunities afforded by the young internet to offer products and services to the public under the trade name PENSBURY MANOR. While all vintage and classic writing instruments were and remain Syd’s general interest, Syd concentrated on the WAHL-EVERSHARP brand. Almost simultaneously, his interest in restoring and repairing writing instruments turned into offering Vintage, Antique writing instruments, repair and restoration as well as a whole line of new manufacture products and services. This combination gave rise to website pages devoted to various aspects of writing instruments : Vintage Pens for sale, Restoration services, Do-It-Yourself products that aid the pen collector in repairing and restoring their pens and pencils. The WIM maintains a comprehensive library of historical materials that cover the history and activities of vintage writing instruments with heavy emphasis on the WAHL-EVERSHARP family of companies. Some of these reference materials are shown on other of this website’s pages. We love helping pen owners in identify their pens as well as restoring pens for them. Due to the physical closure of the visitable museum as of October 2021, The WIM has migrated its services to https://www.pensburymanor.com/
In sum, The WIM and noe PENSBURY MANOR are the result of a combination of years of hobby interest, historical research, and passion for writing instruments that possess both timeless if not iconic design excellence and great writing. The expertise gained over the years and the extensive stock of new and vintage pens and pen parts, related to in The Wahl Company, Eversharp, Inc, and The WAHL-EVERSHARP Pen Company give The WIM the ability to specialize in and provide unparalleled Pen repair and restoration services.
