Good morning FPN! I'm a recent pen addict already I've got too many pens and too much ink

 

Pretty much any time I search for pen knowledge Google directs me here, so I figured I'd make it official.  I'm trying to stick to one pen a week, and this week it's a Noodler's Konrad filled with Black Swan in Australian Roses.

 

My most luxurious purchase so far was a turquoise Pelikan Classic 200, and my cheapest was a vintage Sheaffer I bought on the street for $1.  

 

Pen people are the best people, and I'm looking forward to meeting a lot more

Welcome!  I also love Black Swan in Australian Roses - a great ink with lots of shading!

 

I bet your Sheaffer is one of your best writers -

It's a beautiful ink indeed.  The Konrad is a bit temperamental, but when it flows just right the black comes right through the purple.

 

And you're right about the Sheaffer - it's a 1970's cartridge pen that probably was probably pretty common in its day, but it writes wet and smooth.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Good morning FPN! I'm a recent pen addict already I've got too many pens and too much ink

 

 

 

Welcome !  

 

Sorry, but you err !   There is no such condition as "too many pens".  (Unless you chose poorly, and your spouse declares it.)   One fountain pen per week is reasonable.  I recently acquired 

another Parker 45, for the week of  December 1, 2039 .  :lticaptd:

Write with joy.

Is it totally normal to order have your eye on a Wing Sung 698 to see if it's a better clone of your TWSBI 580 than the 3008 that you already have and see that the same seller's got a TWSBI classic for sale which you've never tried and so you buy both and then find the pen you've really looking for (a sailor procolor) comes up for sale the next morning so you buy that too and suddenly you have 3 on the way? Because that's where I am right now.

 

Not complaining...
