Just want to make a quick introduction...

I am recently advancing my enagement with fountain pens, after having only one or two for a long time, often not in use. My main interest has been in the inks lately, but I have to have something to write them with; I am now the happy owner of a good handful of fine (but intro model) fountain pens. Recent discoveries have been that I prefer medium nibs over my previous inclination toward fine nibs, and that shading is pretty much the best thing. I am also searching out excellent, but economical notebooks.

Looking forward to participating in this forum. 😊

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!
