Pens, ink, and gifts
A question arose from last night’s conversation. I’ve been surprised to learn that a few of my friends have been fascinated by my Travails of the Fountain Pen™ and would be interested in giving a fountain pen a try.
Are you one of those people? Let me know in the comments. I might – just might – have a plan. So far I’ve given pens to two people, and instance #3 is in progress. Last night’s conversation makes me wonder if there are more of you out there than I realized.
That’s the best part. Ink, ink, ink.† I’m very definitely a Noodler’s Ink fan, just because I think ink should be permanent once it’s applied to paper. While Noodler’s carries a lot of permanent inks that are fountain-pen safe, a wider variety of colors are available for people who aren’t quite so choosy about colorfastness.
If you’re interested, speak up and let me know.
†Scott J. and Adam both prefer black, though Adam grades in green; Chris L. prefers purple. I don’t know what Andrew prefers. Misty likes grey. I’m navy blue.
