Good morning.  I just wanted to (re) introduce myself as a new member.  I'm what I think of as a dedicated pen dabbler of many years' duration (nearly 30 by my estimate).  Early on, I collected brands (Parker, Pelikan mostly) -- new, vintage, in between!  My collection was branching out to pretty much anything that caught my eye, then kids came along so my focus (time, $, energy) necessarily shifted.  I found myself using Pilot roller balls etc at work and had only a few fountain pens in rotation.  Starting about 2 years ago, phoenix-like my FP passion re-awoke but in a new direction.  I "discovered" the joys of steel nibs, fairly inexpensive pens (FPR, Noodlers, Safari/Al Star, TWSBI), American small batch pens (Karas Kustoms, Franklin-Christoph) and Faber-Castell.  Re-joining FPN became a lifestyle must!

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!
