This shop of repairing pens is the only one that is left in Bucharest. It is like a treasure for the modern man that still uses pens. Mr Mircea, repairs pens, glasses and rides the bike daily. He is a regular for the media being the only one that still practices this kraft. The nibs (tip of the fountain pen) that have been seen by Mr Mircea have varied deeply from regual school pens to nibs as precious as jewery owned by important politicians that used them to sign hig level papers. Mr Mircea remembers how long the line of people was in front of his shop in Ceauşescu’s regim. The kraft is inherited from his father, everything being coverd in secrecy, because the know how was passed only between family members. Although he is sorry to say this the kraft has ened in the family with him. The number of clients has dropped but the good part is that the quality of the pieces that are waiting in line on the counter has risen.
