Hey everybody! Today’s the day to celebrate the art of handwriting and the use of fountain pens with fellow enthusiasts the world round. Fountain pens encourage the writer to slow down and enjoy the feeling of the pen against the page. They add personality to every letter, and can be paired with a variety of inks and paper types until you find what you like best.
So tell us: What are you writing with today? Share a photo of your favorite fountain pen below, and check out what others are using too.

Cleaning my pens to get ready for inktober. Inktober is an artist challenge to make one ink drawing a day during October. There is a daily prompt list, but I don't use it because i like drawing random things and it's more relaxing and fun for me.
Some previous drawings of mine. https://sammlerworks.wixsite.com/sammlerworkshome/fun-with-inks
And the inktober homepage for more info if interested: https://inktober.com/rules/

My baby! After finally obtaining my grail pen (gold watermark, modern Spencerian nib, double chamber vacuum filler) it's hard to find another grail, maybe it's brother in palladium with a palladium custom nib is next. Take care of the bronze age HS, she was always good to me.

Being a maker of Fine Writing instruments, this is the quality of my work. And also, what I use. :-)

I like that small hand writing.. Mine is slightly the same I just prefer a slight slant to the right as if it's a person and his head is facing forward heading to run off the page lol.
