Ahhhhhhmigawd it came! Finally found a Canadian online retailer for fountain pens, the shipping prices for sites based in the US made me want to cry.
Look at that packaging for the ink bottles. They did not mess around. Also they don’t trust Canada Post.
Big ticket items are the Lamy fountain pen and the pink and oxblood ink. The needles are for refilling the pens, way cheaper than buying refills and much cleaner than messing with converters.
Got a 3.8 parallel pen, which I suspect will be the ‘baby bear’ fit of calligraphy pens, meaning it will be juuuuuuust right.
