    Default New to the site, not to fountain pens

    Greetings, fountain pen enthusiasts!

    I use fountain pens exclusively other than signing cc and debit card slips. I write with multiple pens, and write every day.

    Currently inked -- Franklin Christophe 46; Kaweco Steel Sport; two Karas Kreations pens; Lamy 2000; Pilot Custom 823; Lamy Imporium (the cap is horrible); and a few others.

    Inks in use include Diamine Earl Grey (not a fan of the shade, but well-behaved ink); Blackbird Peacock Teal (Blackbird is made by Maby Todd in England); Herbin Blue de Profondeurs; Diamine Asa Blue; Pelikan 4001 Königsblau (Royal Blue); DeArtamentis Alexander Hamilton (aubergine (purple)); Bungu Box Sapphire; and Pilot Iroshizuku Take-sumi (black).

    I'm not very adventurous with colors, but really appreciate shades of blue.

    And, yes, I clean my pens frequently.

    Brad

    Hi Brad and welcome

    Nice pens there, and some great ink too - I love Earl Grey!

    (and I don't clean my pens nearly often enough)

    What setting do you use on the dishwasher? I know I clean my vintage pens more than their original owners ever did!

    Good to have you here!
