Yeah, so I just bought a Kuratake fountain pen. I like to think it's not an impulse purchase. It's a work expense. I am writing a book that involves, but is not about calligraphy, if that makes sense. The nice thing about it is, that altho I can't stop myself from accidentally drying my ballpoint pens when 've only had three hours of interrupted sleep, I *can* remove foutntain pen ink with soap and water, as it's water soluble!!! Sure beats asphyxiating myself on rubbing alcohol. Supposedly old-fashioned shaving cream (the foaming type, not the gel) works too. If not, I am only out $1.97+tax, and I have a can of Barbasol to replace my nearly-empty Skintimates Baby Powder scent, which I don't really care for anyway. Phew! I do digress, don't I?- - - Updated - - -
My pens arrived today. (January 24, 2013)
Yeah. Pens. I bought two. You are such an enabler, gandhajala.
No, but seriously. I really love the Lamy Safari. I used to have a fountain pen when I was in middle school, but this one seems to write much smoother.
I haven't tried the brush pen yet. A little intimidated.

Nope, you're the only "friend" I know who has a fountain pen. But maybe I can make more. Aiona Jr. is learning to write. He can make Is and Os now. Aiona Jr. #2 can only blow bubbles, yet.
