Hi All

 

I just wanted to let you know that I lurked for a while and read your advice on buying my first fountain pen.

 

Many people recommended the TWSBI Vac700R as a good starter that is quite reliable. A few people emphasized to consider what size pen to get. They saved me from making a bad choice with the Lamy (my original preference) which has too small a diameter for my hand. I bought the TWSBI from Pulp Addiction in fire affected Victoria. I chose the fine nib. After writing for a while I changed my mind and went from a fine nib to a medium.I wanted to let everyone know how pleased I am with it and say thanks.

 

Also, I wanted to thank the people who have done the detailed ink reviews and detailed ink swatches and spectrometer analyses. You have been a big help in making some choices of red/brown colored inks which for some reason I find stimulates me to write.

 

Warm regards

gary

Welcome to Fountain Pen Network!

Your TWSBI M inked with red/brown ink sounds terrific.

The ink review sections have opened my eyes to a wider range of colors than I'd realized existed.

May you continue to enjoy visiting and participating in this site.

Thanks to all for your friendly welcomes (above)!

 

It is a pleasure to be at a website which is so positive and helpful in warning against pitfalls in making choices and expensive consequences of incorrect use and care

 

Warm regards/gary

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!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
