I have a bone to pick with you fine folks! Why did nobody warn me just how fast the rabbit hole goes! I'm really, really enjoying my new hobby/obsession. :)

I have a bone to pick with you fine folks! Why did nobody warn me just how fast the rabbit hole goes! I'm really, really enjoying my new hobby/obsession. :)

I think collecting stationery items is so enjoyable because we can make use of our collection a bit every day. My stamp's collection, for instance, only exists when I take out my album, but my fountain pen collection is always at hand, ready to be integrated into many little tasks throughout the day.

Notwithstanding the fact that many fountain pen ink colors are jaw-droppingly beautiful. 

 

Today I'm using my Yiren with Diamine Sepia sample and my Wing Sung 3008s with Lamy nibs on them.

This one is a 3008 with a Lamy M nib and Pelikan 4001 Blau-Schwarz.

I bought the same Duofold last year, a modern Centennial Black in Fine nib, the first ink I used was Parker Quink blue but it's not my favourite blue at all... anyway, it's a very nice pen, smooth as silk and very classy. Enjoy yours!

 

Cheers,

Thank you Luis!

TWSBI 700R with Montblanc Oyster Grey. Which is my favorite grey ink, purple undertone and behaves so well. But there is something wrong in my Twsbi....

My apologies for another crappy photo. At least this one is not just another one of my boring black pens. My newest acquisition, and gratifyingly the Music nib on this one actually worked with no tinkering required:

Wing Sung 3008 with Lamy F nib and Diamine "Matador" when it gets out of bed with the wrong foot..  Ops, literary translation. I meant to say "when it wakes up on the wrong side of bed."

Got Kaweco Sport to try out fountain pens. Plunged right in with the Namiki Yukari Royale. The office staff could care less, but I'm the owner so the heck with them.

That's a beauty of a pen, and it is meant to be used, so I hope you enjoy it in all ways it can provide.

The whole collection got cleaned and, with the exception of two, re-inked today. Ive had the M1000 for about thirteen years, whereas the others have been from the last two months of so.


What is the demonstrator with green caps? It looks like a pilot custom but not one I know.
