I'm Rico, from Hudson.
I just got onto fountain Pens about 2 days ago.
I've been thinking that I wanted to get a Fountain Pen lately then stumbled across the Burlington, MA. Paradise Pen store. I just looked around the first time knowing I would be in Burligton again. The next time, I looked to buy. I ended up buying a Vision Nature Rosewood Fountain Pen with a medium Iridium point from Online GmBh.
I've been doing research online since.
Last nite I found a Levenger True Writer Kyoto Fountain Pen at one of those "sell your stuff to us & we'll sell it to someone else" stores.
There was another one that had the lever & I couldn't take it apart to open it, so I left it until I could learn more about pens.
I brought Kyoto home & started researching pen restoration. (I'm a year into a hobby of restoring Vintage tobacco pipes and razors [mostly Single & Double Edge] so I figgered pens shouln't be too difficult.) The Kyoto is a cartridge pen, so it'll be an easy first Fountain Pen restore. It came w/ an empty cartridge so I know what it looks like to find others.
Locally, I can't seem to find any Levenger ink. Does anyone know if other brand cartridges are compatable? Otherwise, I'm resigned to ordering online. I'd like to find something locally so I can use my new beauty right away.
