    Default Greetings from Korea

    Hello, hello.

    I have been a fountain person for twenty years but I did not really come down with a serious case until maybe five or six years ago.

    I now have a thing for mostly vintage pens, including Esterbrook Relief pens, mid-century, lower-end Pelikans, and almost any semi-translucent bulb-filler I can find.

    I also have a thing for fine and medium left oblique nibs with the occasional cursive italic on the side.

    I have a thing for a lot of other pen things too but I will stop here.

    반갑습니다.

    앗! 우리나라 (ㅎㅎ) 분인가요?

    옛 펜은 한국에서 찾기가 참 어러워요.

    That sounded dirty.

    Welcome! I seem to see more German pens with OL nibs than other countries. I wonder if that is just my imagination or cognitive biases or if that is a real thing.

    반갑소! 미안하지만 오랑캐입니다. ㅜㅜ

    저도 한국에서 옛 만년필을 못 봤어요. 해외로 주문해야 하죠.

    I think there was a time when oblique nibs were all the rage. I don't see them much on new pens but I sure to like them.
