At what point (or pen count) does simply using and enjoying writing with fountain pens and not giving it much thought morph into: --an interest ? --a hobby? --a passion? --an obsession? --a disease/hoarding disorder? --and a happy state of recovery? What was the greatest number of pens you owned at one time and what is the stable number that you are comfortable with?
Okay, this might be a rather dumb question, but when one purchases a pen and it comes in a box, do you always keep the box? I have lots of pen boxes (some still storing the pens, others empty and some empty with booklets and paperwork) of those pens that I've purchased new in the past 25 years. Obviously, vintage pens or those "found", pen show purchased, swapped, etc. usually are boxless, but does the box on some pens make them anymore valuable? You realize that if this addiction hobby continues, I could easily acquire MORE boxes and that would require MORE storage space! Like I said, dumb question, but I'd be curious what others do. Tell me.....
