Hello all;

 

I've been stalking the forums for a few years now, but never really bothered to sign up or post, but I figured that it's probably long past the time I should have introduced myself.

 

You guys, JetPens, Goulet, Anderson, and Peyton Street influenced me to start the hobby.  I picked up a Metropolitan (F) and 78G (B ) a couple of years ago in the hopes that I could learn to hand-write my wedding invites (definitely did not go that route).  Only ever used the standard Namiki black cartridges til recently.

 

Anyways, I got myself a TWSBI Eco (EF) and a small bottle of Poussiere de Lune for the holidays this year and have actually started to enjoy taking diction and notes.  Looking forward to start experimenting with inks and keep stalking the inky thoughts posts.  In the meantime, hello again, and I hope that I might get a little involved and maybe toss some reviews up over time.  Let me know if you all have any questions or comments.

 

Trevor

Hello Trevor, 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!

I'm not sure if I can convince the wife to drive the 4 hours there two weekends in a row.  Do you have any idea how much general admittance is?
