Thank you Pavoni!

I was thinking for a while whether I should share it or not, but after a deep breath, it just ended up here. :P

Well it's been about 3 and a half years ago since I bought my first fountain pen, a charcoal Safari, and since the addiction begun.
I've been browsing the Hungarian online used market daily, and I can thank most of my purchases to that.
Never even though about owning a big Pelikan, not to speak about Montblancs. Honestly I didn't really see why they were so popular and they are loved by many, but owning them changed my thinking!
I'm feeling lucky for finding great deals and bargains on most of my pens, and I'm really grateful for it! (I hope it'll last...)
 
Of course I've parted with a few...actually 4...I kind of regret selling my sailor 1911 though.
My latest pen (912) arrived this week and I promised myself to go on a little diet. I don't know how long I can hold off though....
 
I need to find a better storage for them! Maybe this could be an excuse for my next purchase...
I have a separate case for some, but most of them are sitting in this not too fancy little box.

Neat!..Not quite the number of pens id expect after 3 years
No less for being "obsessed"...But they are cute pens nonetheless

Well, I'm not here to impress anybody. I just wanted to share it.
I'm really happy with them, and grateful that I was able to get them as a collage student. :)

attika89,

 

Italians say "va piano, va lontano" (maybe my spelling is wrong but it means: goes slow goes farther).

Nice collection so far... be calm when you start with older pens, I know it becomes harder and harder to be calm then...

Thank you for sharing....

Ariel

Very nice collection. You are quite reasonable, after 3 1/2 years.  ;)

 

Could you tell us a little more about the Turcsány Hungarian button filler, please. 

Could you show us the nib and how it writes?

I'd say the Lamy 2000 maybe, but the Pilot 912 and the VP are really close too.

Thank you!
To be honest, it wasn't that easy to get here as a college student with no regular income. I went for the great deals and only bought what I REALLY wanted.

I could've bought a bunch of pens that caught my eye, but I don't mind that I didn't.

Its not inked right now, so let me quote some "writing samples". Out of context, but that's not the point now ;)

Attika :

 

It is a while since you have last posted your collection in one place. I know you have acquired quite a few in the meantime. I think its time for you to post an update on your appreciable collections with your very very attractive  handwriting.  :)
