South Korea Ink Sample Exchange



Recommended Posts

I've slowly been discovering fountain pen users one by one here in South Korea and I was wondering if there was any interest in exchanging ink samples/supplies/etc among those of us in the country. Ink sample vials can be easily purchased on Gmarket and shipping should be fairly cheap. Of course if you live in the same city, you can exchange in person. Anyone interested?

I have seen very few FPN members residing in Korea, but that would be an awesome idea if it can get through. I believe there are some fountain pen communities on Naver/Daum; have you tried those places?

I have met a few fountain pen users on other social media networks that are in Korea. I've even met some in person that I'm not sure even participate in the online FP community. Seems like we're quite disconnected. I'm a part of the biggest FP community on Daum, but the language barrier makes it difficult for me to organize anything with them, unfortunately. I'm hoping to get the attention of more English speakers who are living here.

I am a FP user and will be landing in Korea in June. As a woodturner I only use the pens I make but I have started getting into inks. Would love to learn and maybe participate.

Great, that's good to hear! I've talked to a few people on Reddit who seem like they'd be interested as well.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
