Nice to meet you!
15 years ago my parents frowned at me, when I bought my first serious fountain pen; a Waterman of about 70 euro's. In their opinion:
A] waaaay too much money for a poor student to spending on anything not directly necessary and
B] An absolute bizar amount of money to spend on something as irrelevant as a pen
But I absolutely loved my pen (after working years with a variety of low-quality pens). Sadly I lost that specific pen. In a hotel room in France. If there's any country suitable for losing a Waterman, it's probable France, but still sad. After that first serious FP, serveral others became in my possession... And today my pen-love even shows some signs of addictive behaviour.. I'm a 'anonymous FPN reader' for quite some time now... Today it felt like the right moment to have my public coming out. So here I go:
"Hi. My name is thINK and I'm a pen-o-holic".
After a period of pure sponging up a lot of information here, I'm planning on some point write nice pen and/or ink-reviews in the future to contribute to FPN.
