    Default Oh dear, and I've just ordered more!

    IMG_20160512_231841.jpg

    What have we got here? A load of Parker Reflex plasticky pens I'll be replacing with Chinese metal pens - more Jinhao is on order. My last received order of pens had the Chinese Horse Baoer, Golden dragon with red eyes on the clip Jinhao, and the Hero black and gold thing. Most of the Jinhaos are the 250s. I also have Parker Frontiers and the Vector calligraphy. These pens are all inked and live in my pencil case. Oh, I forgot to include blinding pink and blinding green Safaris and ...

    but these live on my desk.

    I just bought a set of 4 Jinhaos for less then $10 and I have been giving them away. I'm trying to share my sickness.

    Hello, lovely addicted geeks. I'm looking forward to have as much pens as you, Morgaine!! I have 3 already, a Lamy Vista, A Pilot Petit and a Sheaffer Targa Vintage and I'm waiting 3 more. 1 TWSBI Eco, A Noodlers Ahab, and a Pilot Metropolitan. I'm crazy about ot and I haven't started with ink yet, o.O. distracted-mom- Giving pens away feels amazing. I gave my first one to a student that writes beautifly with a ballpoint and when I gave her my Luxor Fountain Pen, she almost cries. I think I have just started sharing the sickness.

    I had started to lose track of the inks until about a year ago, when the SF group put out the call for sample donations. It spurred me to inventory the ink box, and now I have a spreadsheet that I update when new inks arrive.

    The pens... yeah, I can ballpark it, but I really have no exact idea. But that includes pens that are not so important but just haven't left the house for other hands. Nonetheless, I'm clueless on the count.

    Oh, I forgot I had two heart shaped bottles of J. Herbin ink (a purply and a turquoisy) included with two glass twirly dip pens bought before InCo 2015.




    Should I amend the title to, Oh dear and I've just ordered even more! ?

    It was in a lovely little stationer's in Peterborough, in Cambridgeshire. I bought this one myself but I ummed and arred about the other one, the turquoisy one, and came home without that. However, I contacted the lovely Potter (a member here) who was able to buy it for me and drop it off at my mum's for payment.

    Latest picture of pens I own (glass pens, and a pink Safari not shown). Other than one Parker Frontier amongst the Chinese pens, the other Parkers are at the top. Lamy Al-Star and Safari at the ends.

    I first got Deep Dark Orange a while ago and it was a favourite for a long time (still is), but I just recently discovered a desire for, and lack of, a blue-black ink, so acquired Deep Dark Blue - it's the shizzle!

    IMHO you should seriously consider adding Sherwood Green and/or Red Dragon
