I’m not really a fan of about pages, but most blogs have one and I felt some people may want some insight into how I got into fountain pens, and any kind of stationary for that matter.

I received my first fountain pen from my grandfather during the summer of 2017. At the time, it was my younger brother who had been interested in them, and not me. However, I was looking forward to experiencing something new, especially when it came to writing instruments.

The first fountain pens I ever owned were a Jinhao 992 in solid green, and an amber Jinhao X450. I was blown away. The pens wrote smoothly, smoother than any other pen I’ve ever used. And, with the added bonus of being able to change the inks to any color I wanted, I was hooked.

After purchasing several more fountain pens, I decided to start this blog to share my love of fountain pens with everyone else. I feel everyone should try to use a fountain pen at some point, as using them can be life changing. I know it was for me.
