Another Hello From The Chicago Area


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am a long-time FP user but have only recently returned to the FP rabbit hole (due to work I went with pencils and ballpoints for a long time). I stumbled into the Chicago Pen Show last year and it brought me back to my love of fountain pens and writing with them.


I used 2 student Shaeffer pens in high school, and when I graduated my mother bought me a Shaeffer Targa which I still have. In college I added a Shaeffer NoNonsense and those were the pens that got me me through every day of high school and college. That was many years ago and today I am loving the variety that is now available (to me). And the inks! I remember when my only choices were Shaeffer black and blue because we lived in a rural area and writing supplies were a little hard to find. I am now in a love-hate relationship with Organic Studios Nitrogen!


I have been lurking around FPN for some time, but decided to jump in. I enjoy reading about all the different opinions and experiences, plus there really is a lot of knowledge to be found.

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!

You have successfully entered a rabbit hole, who knows what it'll yield and where it'll lead.

Enjoy the fascinating journey and feel free to ask/share... thumbup.gif
