It took me 2015 days. From finishing my registration on the FPN to my introduction post. Fun fact, 2015 is also the year I signed up.

 

Hello everyone,

2015 days is a long time to dive deeeeep into a hobby, and that’s what I’ve done.

From my first fountain pen that my brother gave me, a Rotring 600, I was hooked and didn’t stop to use them until today. The Rotring was joint by more and more pens, inks and paper throughout the years. 

 

I started to appreciate different nib sizes, pen materials and finishes. Stop me if you have heard this before…

 

 

While Instagram is a good platform to find inspiration and contribute to the same hobby, its not the same experience as having longer conversations and a huge archive.

 

Happy to start reading and posten on the fountain pen network.

 

 

I see you all in the 🧵.

 

 

Greeting from Germany

Ambi

 

P.S. yes I had to write in school with a Lamy FP.

So glad to finally hear from you Ambi! What's your favorite ink? Mine is the faux Parker Penman Sapphire mix that DCWaites developed with inspiration from AmberLeaDavis.

Welcome to FPN!

So, don't tease. Tell us as soon as you find out why it took so long. (You're going to try and find out, right? right?)

:W2FPN:

Enjoy. While silence is supposedly golden, on this network speaking is not silver - it's iridium.

Thanks! Selecting one ink is really hard. It would need to select one for work and one for fun. Rohrer und Klingner Alt Goldgrün is the most fascinating shading green I know. For work I use iroshizuku shin kai.

This is going to be a topic for a journal I'm about to start  :D  

Will let you know first when I figured it out.

2015 days this resonates with me to some extent as I took my sweet time before posting anything, not this long but still a bit. But hey as they say we are never too old to start something new so with this WELCOME TO THE SMALL FPN HUT.
