Hi All

 

I just wanted to let you know that I lurked for a while and read your advice on buying my first fountain pen.

 

Many people recommended the TWSBI Vac700R as a good starter that is quite reliable. A few people emphasized to consider what size pen to get. They saved me from making a bad choice with the Lamy (my original preference) which has too small a diameter for my hand. I bought the TWSBI from Pulp Addiction in fire affected Victoria. I chose the fine nib. After writing for a while I changed my mind and went from a fine nib to a medium.I wanted to let everyone know how pleased I am with it and say thanks.

 

Also, I wanted to thank the people who have done the detailed ink reviews and detailed ink swatches and spectrometer analyses. You have been a big help in making some choices of red/brown colored inks which for some reason I find stimulates me to write.

 

Warm regards

gary

Welcome to Fountain Pen Network!

 

Your TWSBI M inked with red/brown ink sounds terrific.

 

The ink review sections have opened my eyes to a wider range of colors than I'd realized existed.

 

May you continue to enjoy visiting and participating in this site.

 

Tom K.

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!
