Stealing something from a former colleague.
I am going to try and post more here in German for practice as I learn.
For any mistakes, I give you all explicit permission to (nicely) provide corrections for anything from awkward phrasing to wrong words and outright nonsense.
I will keep a casual record of these, and will give you a cookie or buy you drinks/food at the next Congress/Electromagnetic Field/CCCamp/etc as thanks.
I have discovered that LAMY made a special matte black edition Safari in 2018, which is exactly the color I want.
Guess I am now going to some pen shows to try and track that one down. :D
New pen day. :3
LAMY Safari in charcoal with an extra fine nib, which I swapped in a red clip from a broken LAMY Joy. Inked up with Diamine Red Dragon.
This particular pen and ink had some wild flow properties for the first page or so of writing, but it seems to have evened out now.
May end up part swapping the collar, nib, and clip onto a standard black Safari in the future since I was aiming for a darker black, but right now this matches my Field Notes and the non-glossy texture is kind of nice. ❤🖤
Social media platform moderation and the workarounds employed by various marginalized communities has gotten to the point where someone can link their “accountancy page” and I can never be sure if I am about to get tax advice or a picture of their ass.
…worse is that with some of my friends, it could be both!
Stationary (pens in particular) is such as cool community because pretty much everyone just wants to share the joy of writing and it is all about finding something that you enjoy using above the commoditized baseline.
It never goes out of date, brings in people from all walks of life, and scales from about a sub-€2 MUJI Gel Ink pen all the way to the one-off custom pens from the finest makers in the most expensive materials.
I'm really happy because I got to revisit a pen that I owned when I was literally 9 years old (LAMY Safari).
Currently putting a LAMY Safari fountain pen together from various part swaps that fits my current aesthetic to carry in my messenger bag. ❤️🖤
