After being a silent reader for a while, I will try to post something here.. (english is not my daily language, so hang on.. )
I just recently fascinated by fountain pen few months ago. It's all started when me and my father went to meet his old friend in a meeting who has a S.T Dupont Elysee. Then I remembered that I have had a fountain pen back when I was 10 yrs old. I can't remember the brand but it was printed with colorful jungle and animals picture on its plastic body. The first thing I did to it was try to figure out how it is worked, try to take everything apart, ink all over places, thankfully I was able to put those back together. I brought the pen to school (got many "ooh" and "aah" from friends) and use it everyday until it broke (I dropped it and destroy the nib). I shared this memory with my father and he gave me a MB Starwalker next week (thanks dad!). And that begins my FP journey. Now I have a Sheaffer 100 M, Lamy Al Star (+spare nibs), Parker Urban and the Starwalker and bottles of inks, and I hope my collection will start growing, despite low availability in my local market. My next target maybe a FaberCastell.
I see a good community here and tons of knowledge. You rocks guys!!
