Like many here, The Nib has served for me as a gateway to an all new hobby. I'm really grateful to have pen Jedis like Brian, Doug and so many others here to make this an easy pool to dip a toe in. The pens are great, but I'm not a collector, just a user. I love paper, but don't write all that much. Love the inks, but my preference tends toward conventional blues and blacks (and shades similar to them...a big fan of Noodler's Purple Heart).
The thing that really borders on obsession, though, is nibs. I first caught the bug when I swapped a medium in for a fine nib in my Safari. Then Suzuki started the thread about the Triumph nib. I then found myself preferring italic nibs over the conventional ones. Is this like having Blade Acquisition Disorder? Is there something wrong with me????????
