Hi Mangrove Jack... I'm a fountain pen enthusiast from Mumbai and it's super to see you here. I'll be on a 5 months long project in Colombo starting next week and would love to meet you for pen talk, based on your availability. I've been collecting fountain pens for short while and after the initial spree of acquisitions, I'm a lot more controlled now. Will you be able to recommend any places for vintage pens in Sri lanka?
 
Regards,
Tarun


Hello Tarun,

Great. Would love to meet you. I live in Colombo so it will be easy for us to meet. There are no vintage pen sellers in Sri Lanka unfortunately as there is absolutely no market for them here.
I will send you a PM with my phone number, call me when you arrive.
Look forward to talking FP's with someone as there are no FP enthusiasts in this country.

Nearly a three years older post. And I wish Mangrove was more often with us. But he now seldom visits FPN. Hope he is well and fine.

True Mitto. I should visit FPN more often. Much more often.

Mongrove, we, or should I say I, miss you a lot. Be happy and enjoy your pens and, above all, life.

Thank you mitto for the kind words. You make me feel appreciated. I am enjoying my pens, especially using them, and have 3 inked in use on my desk. A Cross solo, Parker 61 burgundy Consort and a Sheaffer lady Skripsert. All beautifully smooth and a treat to write with. And I am enjoying and appreciating life too my friend.
