I'll make this short and sweet as I'm on my way to buy some nice Dark Green FP ink (oh I'm so lucky!).
Let me introduce myself,
I am a mixed nationality (fountain pen) person who simply adores old pens (go away MB M collection what are you doing in such a beautiful catalog), I have some newer pens like the Lamy Dialog 3 (which writes like a charm) but my love is my MB 149.
I hope to be able to partake in giving advice and I'll definitely bother you guys with questions about ink, nib age and other (fun) stuff.
All in all I'm excited to join this community and have been 'lurking' for a while but decided now with the (limited) knowledge I have and the questions I have about determining a pen's age.
I'm sorry if I come of rambling at times and don't put proper punctuation in my sentences but I'm lazy on keyboard as my true love is handwriting (which sadly isn't accepted at work or universities anymore).
I'm a self employed 'entrepreneur' (I don't like that word) or how I'd like to call myself, a self employed worker. I love literature, philosophy, science and obviously pens (but also mechanical pencils, gums, paper and honestly any stationary that you can think of).
I'm currently residing in the Netherlands (right next to the Akkerman store where I'm about to go for my ink ) so if you need/want anything or have any questions, always feel free to ask.
Now I'm off to make one of the hardest decisions in my life, to choose between:
- MB Irish Green
- J Herbin Vert Empire
- Akkkerman Groenmarkt Smaragd
As you might have guessed I like dark green ink.
Greetings and salutations to all,
Fixed some typos and got the Akkerman ink. Also thank you for all the kind replies!
