Driving taxi in Istanbul is more exciting than roller-coaster  :lol:

:lol: Yeah, you got that right!

I tend to order a local beer wherever I go, so as to get the full experience. I've found some delightful drops that way, though have been disappointed in Portsmouth, where they gave me something flat and warm. :huh: 

And in Lichfield on Route 66 just outside St Louis, where I asked for a local beer and they gave me a Bud!

But there are few better experiences than sitting - with the other tourists - at a fish restaurant on the lower level of the Pera Bridge, having a fabulous meal, drinking an Efes, watching the ferryboats bustle about on the Golden Horn, the sardine fishermen hauling in their catch and looking at Asia across the Bosphorus. What a city and a half it is!

Welcome !

 

Unlike ball pens, the must track with friction on the paper in order to distribute the paste ink, the liquid

ink of a fountain pen has an affinity for the paper surface.  The ink will flow to the paper eagerly.  one

merely guides the path of flow.  Therefore, writing with a fountain pen will be smooth and low in effort.

 

Currently, you can see the line of ink that you are applying.  How do you wish this line of ink to appear

on the paper ?  Fine ?  Broad ?  Of consistent thickness ?  Varied thickness ?  

 

Montblanc is known for excellent quality, at a premium price.  It offers a comprehensive range of  options.

Perhaps the best strategy would be to enlist direct assistance at a pen shop. 

 

Write with joy.

My advice would be to take your time, purchase some cheaper pens and see what you like, rather than rushing out and buying a Montblanc.

 

My wife is Turkish (sang in the pop group "Beş Yıl Önce, On Yıl Sonra") and now also collects and restores old pens.

Thank you Sasha,

I am looking for the best pen for signing documents. It should show better my signature. According to articles and advice that I read, the nib must be broad or wider for the signature not seem weakness. So I think EF, F (maybe M) aren't suitable for me? In my opinion the best way try them at pen shop, but I want to learn that which issues (nib, oblique, stub etc.) should I focus?

Merhaba enişte  :)  and greetings to yenge from Turkey  :) Did this group contest in Eurovision?

I think your suggestion is logical. Which nib do you suggest for beginners?

Slm Murat,

 

FPN ye hoşgeldin :D Nerede oturduğunu söylersen seni kalem dükkanlarına yönlendirebilirim...Eğer imza kalemi istiyorsan Pelikan ile Montblanc tabiki güzek kalemler.Sen nasıl birşet istediğini tarif edersen ona göre bulmak daha kolay olur. Yani ince uç mu kalın mı ? Kalemin malzemesi ile ilgili reçine mi metal gövdemi ?
