Ode To My New Noodler's Flex Nib Pen

I recently bought my first flex pen: a Noodler's Ahab Flex pen, purchased from Wonderpens in Toronto.
 
As you can tell, I'm still trying to get the hang of it!

A New Iroshizuku Ink For Me: Yama-Budo

Posted by DebbieOhi , in Inky Milestones 26 December 2016 · 1,863 views
iroshizuku, yamabudo, lamysafari and 1 more...

The Iroshizuku inks are expensive but I wanted to try a second ink color, so opted for Yama-Budo. Actually, I ordered Kon-Peki but the company accidentally sent me the wrong colour. I decided to keep Yama-Budo because I love the vibrancy. It's not a colour I'd use to write an entire letter but I do like the contrast to my Yama-Guri. I do still want Kon-Peki as well.
 
And as you can see from the photo, I did buy another Lamy Safari. Laywine's in Toronto was still having its Mix'n'Match Lamy Safari sale, so I could not resist picking different colors.
 
I do so love how the Lamy Safari fits in my hand, and how smooth it writes.

My Very First Fountain Pen!

iroshizuku, scriptus, lamysafari

After years of believing that fountain pens were just too unwieldy and messy and scratchy for day-to-day use, my friend Michelle Leung convinced me to check out Scriptus, a Toronto pen show, in October 2016. My husband came along (he's been a fan of fountain pens for years but gave up on trying to convince me) and bought me my very first fountain pen: a red Lamy Safari. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
 
My first ink, also purchased at the Scriptus show: Iroshizuku Yama-Guri (the brand was recommended by my husband).
