One pen roll, two pen rolls, three pen rolls ... So many pen rolls ! Do you want one ?
my tiny shop is open  and you can have a closer look on my website to see my cotton (and sometimes silk) OOAK penrolls.

Hi oneill

I've heard about Jinhao before, they do seem mega cheap! Which model do you recommend?

I'm currently using either a TWSBI 580 or my newest love a Pilot Capless Black and White, both medium nibs as I tend to go all out spider-scrawl with finer nibs!

You must have a messed up accent being originally from good ol' Geordieland and now in Australia! I'm originally from Essex, but no real accent left from there, no one seems to know where I'm from :)

Speaking of accents: I'm French Canadian, lived in France 3 years, UK 4 years, the US ~ 6 years.  My accent is all over the place, both French and English, nobody can figure where I'm from... LOL

Oh boy! And I bet where you lived in the US has had an impact?! Depending on the state and how soft the regional accent is! Okay ya got me, you definitely trump my messed up accent ;)

Welcome, Honeybear !   

(An old acquaintance, at the National Zoo, called the Kinkajou a "honeybear".)

 

I welcome all your questions.  Not that I can answer them, but I often learn a great deal from the answers and the discussions that follow.  

 

What do you use for daily writing ?  


Auf freiem Grund mit freiem Volke stehn. 
Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
