Hi everyone

 

After a hiatus of a good few years, I am returning back to the forum. I've missed you. While I have been away, I have been using my FPs every single day, but things have changed a bit in my life.

 

Over the last couple of years I have moved about four times (now living in central Manchester UK, which is very cool) and have set up my own business (which is also cool). You won't be surprised to learn that my business is around writing and my new logo incorporates a fountain pen. I'll post a picture when I get the image files back from the designer.

 

I can see things have evolved a little bit as well on the forum. Things look slightly different and there are a lot of new faces in amongst the old friends. I say hello to all of you and look forward to many chats and discussions about our favourite topics of pens, paper and ink.

 

Leonie :)

"Writing is 1/3 nib width & flex, 1/3 paper and 1/3 ink. In that order."Bo Bo Olson

"No one needs to rotate a pen while using an oblique, in fact, that's against the whole concept of an oblique, which is to give you shading without any special effort."Professor Propas, 24 December 2010

 

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived.  I have three, but hardly ever use them.  After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

Hi Beechwood... I never got the Cocoa in the end. I had a lovely turquoise one that somebody destroyed the nib on when I let them borrow it. It was a devastating experience because the nib was a perfect left oblique broad that could have been made for me in mind!

 

Lesson: be careful who you let try out your vintage pens!
