Hey everyone!

 

Fountain pen noob here from Utah. Years ago I got a Waterford pen from some catalog because I've always liked good pens and I thought it looked cool. It sucked and my hobby almost died there. A few months ago I bought a Pilot Metro on a whim, tried it out, and have been absolutely obsessed ever since (I'm sure you've all been there).

 

I've since accumulated an Edison Collier, Noodler's Ahab, Parker 21, TWSBI Diamond 580, and even got the Waterford writing. 

 

Anyway, I'm loving it and can't wait to add to my collection! (Much to my wife's chagrin)

 

I'll be sure to bug you all with lots of questions. Great to be here!

Welcome !  

 

Everyone deserves a second chance to go bankrupt.  Your wife is right.  Wives are always right.   

Be patient.  Give her a chance to learn the advantages of a fountain pen.  Then, find out which 

beautiful ink she likes.  Sunlight through ink in a TWSBI is lovely.  Get her one of her own.  

 

(Okay, she has left the room.  Wives are NOT always right.  Mine just left the room.)  :lticaptd:

 

Write with joy.

Verweile doch, du bist so schön !

I live in Las Vegas, Nevada, so we're neighbors, too. According to Mapquest, your house is only 450 miles from mine. It is far enough away that you won't be just stopping by to borrow some ink.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.
