You have a fine selection of pens and inks. Especially the Faber-Castells are beauties!

Hello Alves and :W2FPN:


That is already a serious collection.


And, judging from the various inks, all are being used??....

Welcome! Nice collection. I look forward to chatting about pens and ink with you in the future.

May your ways be green and golden, and the wind be at your back.

Thank you all for the warm reception. Many of my pens are filled up with the Aurora Black just for testing; after reading many posts here I learned that there are "wet" and "dry" inks. I'd say that Aurora is too wet and flows too fast; my daily use notebook doesn't like it. The Faber Castell in parquet finish is filled up with Sheaffer Brown (just to match the colors).

It's an interesting task to test which ink works best in each pen.

I am now looking for a new pen (interested in a Lamy Vista demonstrator) to be used with J. Herbin red.

Welcome !


Yes, Aurora Black is very wet and very black. One of my favorites.

A warm welcome to FPN, Alves!


It's fun trying to determine the best pen, paper, and ink combination.


It may also be why my ink and paper collection keeps growing, too. ;)


We're glad to have you here and how you enjoy your time on FPN.
