Greetings From Seattle!

Hello fellow FP geeks!

 

I am a returnee to the fountain pen world. A couple of months ago, I picked up a Pilot Varsity and loved it. Then I ended up ordering three Lamys from Amazon - a Lx, an Al-Star, and a Vista. I also ordered a bottle of Shin-Kai ink and bought two different Noodler's inks (one of which being the infamous Bay State Blue) from a local shop that sold it.

 

I got back into the FP world because I am studying for a tech cert and wanted to do handwritten notes. I am a believer in the science that handwritten notetaking vastly improves understanding and retention of the subject you are studying. I am also getting into bullet journalling - my BuJo is a Leuchtturm1917 Master. It's huge and I'm a bit disappointed with how much the BSB shows through the pages, but it's only enough to be mildly annoying. BSB really bleeds through my cert notebook, a Moleskine. Hindsight being 20/20, I would have stuck with the Iroshizuku ink and Rhodia or Leuchtturm1917 notebooks (more on the ink in another post.)

 

My next pen(s) will likely be (a) Lamy Studio.

 

Well, that's my short intro. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to FPN, 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!
