I love reading this thread, so I thought I would join in the fun. Clearly I'm very late to the party. Hopefully not too late...

 

Anyway, here is one of my calligraphy Frankenpens:

Been a little while since this thread was used, so I thought I'd put up my inked pens

It's been a while for me too. When one of your favourite pens is loaded with one of your favourite inks, magic rarely fails to happen.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

The 'interesting' thing is that, with the COVID-19 health crisis (and, more specifically, my fellow citizens' — my peers' and equals' — behaviours and demonstrated attitudes in response) being so depressing, it's the first time in years that I found myself having the enthusiasm to touch very few of my fountain pens if at all, and now it's dawned on me that I could probably do with just 30 pens instead of 200+ (not counting the ones that have moved to my wife's fleet permanently).


As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

I made that discovery and shared a bunch of pens and ink.

 

And I understand about the inter-marital movement of pens and ink.
