    Default Hi guys...

    Hi everyone,

    I just joined and wanted to say hi.
    I've been using FP's since I'm a kid (I'm from Switzerland and we use them in school).
    But I've rediscovered them recently and have been adding some nice Japanese pens (up until then I mostly knew European pens, like Rotring, Montblanc, Faber Castel, etc.).
    Right now I'm enjoying Japanese, Korean, Indian and American ones. There are so many nice models out there 🤯
    And I've dabbed a toe in vintage pens, but that seems like on another level...

    Thanks, trying new pens is always such a nice experience.
    There's the expectation, and if the stars align, expectation is met or surpassed.
    Of lately I've been quite lucky with my new acquisitions.
    I'll gladly share some pics on the weekend.

    Hey Bebox! Love Switzerland! Have had the privilege of traveling there several times and I am in awe of your country!

    My family is from Austria and Bavaria. Kind of scattered a bit, but it is in my blood! Mostly around the Landeck area.

    Glad you are with us!

    Hi Bisquitlips,

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    Glad you like Switzerland, I was living abroad for a long time and moved back 4 or 5 years ago and am enjoying it a lot again. I did miss the winters and the mountains
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore
