    Default Hello all from North West Washington

    Hello all,

    I caught the fountain pen bug about 3 years ago when I started journaling a lot. Well I have been in the military and just retired so I can use fountain pens exclusively. They are becoming almost an obsession. Itís a happy one though. I have quite a few pens now.

    Platinum Balance Fine
    Kaweco Skyline Sport EF
    Pilot Elite EF Black and Gold (Old 70ís Korean made steel nib)
    Pilot Elite 95s EF Deep Red/Ivory
    multiple Platinum Preppies EF

    I usually use De Atramentis document black and document blue inks. I also have document green and because I used to live in Connecticut I also have Noodlerís Polar Black and Polar Blue. My daughter steals my Empire Red a lot too. She also has the bug.

    I have a few pens I am also looking at parting with in the future. Those are...

    Monteverde Invincia deluxe black chrome EF
    Lamy Studio Stainless Steel EF
    Faber Castell Loom Gunmetal Fine

    I hope everyone enjoys their writing today.

    -Michael

    Thank you all for the well wishes. And as for needing money for the hobby I know. My other two obsessions are vintage safety razors and acoustic guitars. I am glad I have a very forgiving wife.
