Namaste _/\_ from Fremont, CA. Greetings, salam, howdy, hello! :-)

 

My name is Amarendra, and I have been flirting with fountain pens on-and-off -- I guess it all started in school (back in India), where fountain pens were mandatory till grade 10th. My grandpa had a collection of esoteric pens, including inks, from all part of the world and at some point he also was an ink dealer (Lotus Inks, don't think that brand exists anymore in India). Some of it rubbed off on me.

 

I again discovered my love for fountain pens a few months ago, and have about a dozen of 'em now (Pelikan, Karas Kustoms, Noodlers, Ranga, Kaweko, Opus 88, to name a few) . Finally, I made it to FPN! Hope to broaden my experience on this forum, and looking forward to an enjoyable time. Thanks for having me!

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!
