Hello, my name is Synnöve.
After years of improper training, frustrations with the physical durress of popular writing instruments, and an ever increasing dream of possesing the skill of a fine hand, I decided to plunge in head first in to uncharted territory and add fountainpens and penmanship to my list of hobbies that warrant too much time and money.
My first purchases are as follows:
-A bottle of Noodler's black-blue,
-A Wahl Eversharp GF from 1920-1923 w/ a nib that appears to be from the 50s(?),
-A Wahl Eversharp Mechanical pencil that is of matching style,
-Clairefontaine Basics notebook.
I've attatched photos of the pen & pencil (taken by the seller as the watermark shows).
Suffice to say, I'm in for a lot of practice, but considering I'm going to be returning to school soon this reality is rather fitting as it'll give me the oppertunity to write moreso than I normally would of my own accord.
I hope this first post reflects favorable beginner's taste & judgement vs. overreaching obnoxiousness. Any advise or guidence would be greatly appreciated.
