High Five From Toronto

Hi Everyone!

 

I just got started into the pen world late last year. I'm a 29 year old from Toronto Canada who picked up my first fountain pen, a Kaweco Sport, and it snowballed into 7-8 more pens thereafter.

 

I'm actually going to stop by the store after work to pick up a Konrad Brush Pen and a J Herbin Gris Nuage :)

 

My pursuit is to improve my handwriting skills and I'm currently learning Spencerian, and the Palmer Method of handwriting... I guess Palmer is the derivative of Spencerian, so they go hand in hand.

 

I'm having a lot of fun with this new and addicting hobby... writing letters, testing inks and collecting pens (which I need to practice restraint if I don't want to go broke, LOL).

 

Have a good one everyone! And happy inking :)

Welcome, Inkception !

 

Improvement of one's handwriting is a noble pursuit. So, what other pens do you have ?

 

You didn't mention the pursuit of poverty. Anyway, one can always sell a kidney. :lticaptd:

Write with joy.

Welcome !

 

The first step is to acknowledge your problem....the FP addiction. Feel better. But, no cure....well, yes....more FPs & inks :)

 

Sasha Royale keeps recommending selling kidneys.. still won't reveal how many he's got left.

 

Happy fountain penning.

thanks & best wishes, Captain Nib

...keep nibbing on...

Don't look down on someone, unless helping them up :D

Welcome from just a little north of you here in Wisconsin. Enjoy. So many pens, so little time.

Thank you thank you. Greetings from the north! .... More like so many pens, so little cashflow. :)

Ah! To improve what is used daily and to maximize its efficiency and beauty? There is no finer pursuit. And plus, my natural handwriting looks as if I've drank one too many cups of joe.

 

Since the Kaweco Sport, I aquired a Noodler's Creaper, Pilot Metropolitan, 78G, Waterman 100 Year Flex, Shaeffer Craftsman 0.6mm custom stub, Pilot Parallel 1.5 & 3.8, Pental Pocket Brush (not a FP, but I use FP inks in it), Konrad Brush Pen (just picked up yesterday!), TWSBI mini 1.1 (in the mail), Rotring ArtPen 1.1 & 1.9, and Fisher Space Pen (not a FP but my emergency pen I keep in my wallet).

 

Buuuut what I would LOVE to get is another question for another time, and for another pay salary, haha. ;)

I think you're right about the cash flow. (But Luck, WI IS north of Toronto)

 

 

Lol, apologies. I should really look at a map SMH

Yup, LOL, too. It's a common error. (FYI, Luck is 45 degrees north, Toronto is 43 degrees north)
