Hello Everyone!

I'm Jacob from Chicago.

 

I'm new-ish in the fountain pen world. I have a few entry level pens and a few inks.

I hope to expand my collection and save up to buy a pretty special pen, maybe a Pilot 823 or a Pelikan M100.

I have an obsession with Diamine inks. ( Regency Blue is my favorite).

 

I love to learn about fountain pens and their history.

Welcome, Jacob !  

 

I am familiar with Diamine Sapphire Blue, but not "Regency Blue".  Is it new ?  (not that I am a Diamine expert).  Is it a dark blue or light blue ?  

 

Of your entry level fountain pens, which do you have ?

Greetings!

...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.

Welcome to FPN!

I will be visiting Chicago next week for a conference. Are there any pen stores along the Magnificent Mile that I should visit? I figured that it would not hurt to ask. ; )
