Hello, everyone. I'm Marcus. I am new to FPN. I have enjoyed fine writing instruments since I was in college - I'm not in my mid-thirties.

 

I'm not an expert by any means. I'm not even a collector. I just enjoy handwriting. I have a little bit of graphomania. I really enjoy writing with fountain pens. My current inventory include Waterman Carene, Parker Sonnet, Pilot Kakuno and Hero 007. My ink of choice right now is Pilot. I am not particular about paper as long as it doesn't bleed. I don't mind writing on regular printer paper, as long as I have something behind it for the bleeding. I prefer Asian fine nibs or Western extra fine nibs. 

 

I look forward to meeting you all in the forums and learning from everyone.

Welcome, Marcus ! 

 

I use a lot of office copy paper, as well.  I was able to influence the buyer to order copy paper with 

a harder, shinier finish.  It seems to be less prone to liquid ink bleed.
