Hi all,

       I live in London and have recently re-discovered the inky world of fountain pens.

I used them regularly at school when I was but a mere stripling, as all my inky pocketed shirts will testify! but that was a while ago.

 

Anyway hey-ho here we are a whole heap of years later and I have just purchased a Sailor Professional gear in silver and a Kweco Dia 2 also with silver livery. (I'm not a gold type of guy)

I also acquired some Sailor and Pilot Iroshizuku inks.

 

As my pens haven't arrived yet and i'm bursting with apprehension I intend to cover my body from head to toe in ink I already have and dance the dance of eagerness until they do!

 

Uncle Meat.

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!
