Hey there! My name is Gus and I have a fountain pen and paper addiction. I've been using fountain pens on and off for 15 years, but really got into the hobby seriously a little under two years ago. I have pens from (in no particular order) Platinum, Pelikan, Sailor, Pilot, MB, Rotring, Conklin, Aurora, Esterbrook, etc. I have also recently started geeking out on Tomoe River paper and trying interesting ink. I think I have 13 different colors/brands headed to me after getting a little Christmas money. I have often lurked here looking at topics, but decided to finally activate my account and post something.
