Hello from SoCal
« on: Fri, 15 May 2020, 23:19:50 »
Hey everyone,

So to start off I learned of this hobby recently watching some youtubers and eventually FrankP came about custom keyboards. I didn't think much of it until I watched :)ildcat and heard the voyager65 keyboard with H1 switches and I was like amazed how great they sounded. So here I am deep into something pretty cool.

Other hobbies I enjoy are guns, knives, games, and grilling.

Hey there, BLOODYJOKER!

Welcome to geekhack :)
How you got into the hobby is similar to how I did; I had TaehaTypes show up in my recommended feed on YouTube, watched a few of his builds, and then I nose-dived and began watching other fellow keebweebs, such as Andy Nguyen, Brandon Taylor, TheApiary, and many more. I guess it just happened since I was building a my PC and the interest came up.

You got some pretty cool hobbies there. I was once into knives, but it served no purpose for me since all I would do is just look at them.
I, do however, partake in the following (aside from keyboards):
  • Fountain pens
  • Journaling
  • Raw denim
  • Watches

Hope you enjoy your stay!

I like fountain pens as well man! what are some of your favorites? I haven't gone as deep into that hobby so far but it seems just as interesting.

My favorite two favorites right now are the Pilot Heritage 912 w/ a 14k Waverly Nib and a Schon Design Pocket 6 w/ a Fine Bock nib.

The Pilot Heritage 912 was pretty much my grail pen and when I got it in from Engeika (this was prior they became their own brand), it marked off all the boxes. It's the perfect size for my hands, uses a large removable converter, and the Waverly nib allowed me to write at any angle whenever I held the pen. It glides over paper and is by far the best pen I own.

The Schon Design is a Valentine's Day present I got from my S.O. It's a one man company run by an engineer who bought his own mills to make his pens. Writes like a charm, is portable, and I love its anodized aluminum with seamless construction. You should check out his stuff. He's been improving his craft day by day. The dude even makes watches, too!

Hi BL0ODYJOKER. Welcome to Geekhack.

I figured this one was covered, but I see you like guns. Which have you got? Which do you like?

Also, while I'm at it, what switches have you tried, and which do you like?
