Anyone interested in some thread themes of the month like inks or papers maybe writing styles
While that's true, there's a lot to be said for the small, modern US manufacturers, such as Franklin-Christoph, Bexley, Gate City (made by Bexley), and Edison. I'm sure there are others I don't know about. Discussion of those manufacturers would make a good theme for one month.Around here it's more like Lamy, Edison, TWSBI
Sounds good. Perhaps uses of pens? Journal writing, letter writing, card writing (December), note writing (thank you, sympathy, congratulations, well done) and associated stationery a gentleman needs to have on hand, agendas and time keeping techniques, note keeping 3 x 5 cards, letters written to your kids to open on 21st birthday, writing on your travels, train, plane, automobiles, (boat?), postcards, letters to MPs and other politicians (yes I've written to Dalton and had form letter responses), letters and notes that we have received that inspire.
