    Default Hello from Washington, DC!

    Hi there! I'm relatively new to fountain pens, having first fallen down the rabbit hole a year and a half ago, and am excited to start participating more in the community. Right now I've got a brand new TWSBI 580 ALR Prussian Blue (B) inked up with Sailor 123 and a Lamy 2000 (F) inked with Pilot Iroshizuku with Tsuki-yo. It's been interesting watching my tastes evolve from extra-fines to broads and stubs as I've experimented more, it seems like that's a common progression?

    Welcome!!!! And stay safe there!!! It is a good week, perhaps, for you to stay home and buy pens, inks and paper.

    That's a good question...and I'm not sure what the answer would be.

    Maybe ask the same question in then 'Pens in general' forum.

    Personally, I started with mediums, and then explored finer and broader nibs.
