Thanks for allowing me onto the forum. I am a long term kit pen maker using mainly timber and epoxy blanks I make myself.

I am currently in the process of adding bespoke Fountain Pens to my list of interests as I have recently started using them again after many years.

I used FP as a child and grew up with dip pens as well before switching to the magical biro when they became available.

Anyway, I look forward to joining in the conversation I enjoy so much.

Cheers, Ian

Welcome to FPN, mate!

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Hi All, i have had some disruptions in my world as a lot of people around the world have had with Covid and other goings on. Thanks for your welcome wishes and my apologies for not responding sooner.

I have been back in my shed lately and have gone deep into the rabbit hole of bespoke pen making and have made several so far and will post an update shortly on those.

Cheers, ian

      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
