Hello From Alfred, Ny



Recommended Posts

Hello all! I live in Alfred, NY and a newcomer to fountain pens in general. A very tiny town (village) that is in the middle of nowhere but has two large colleges across from one another. I've been doing some calligraphy for a few years and wanted to try something a little different from my dip and Pilot Parallel pens.

 

I've gotten a TWSBI and a Karas Kustoms pen, but went ahead and splurged for a Conid Bulkfiller Regular. Having a hard time waiting for them pen to ship and arrive at the end of this month! I believe I've exhausted all videos on Youtube about the Conid and trying hard to keep my attention focused on patience.

 

Thank for letting me join the community and will definitely post photos of men when it comes!

 

James

Hello and welcome from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Welcome !

 

I was at the University of Maryland, when Cindy said that she was going to "AU". I though we would be neighbors, with Cindy at American University. Alas, she meant Alfred University. Alfred The Great, is said to be model for the legendary Arthur Pendragon.

 

Will you be attending the Belmont Stakes, in June ?

Greetings and welcome!

 

:W2FPN:

...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.
