But it's a dry heat.


I'm new to the forum. I have a small collection of fountain pens, which is unique since no one can read my penmanship.


I have 1 Parker, which has decided to not write, 3 Baoer, several Jinhao, Sheaffer and a few no-name pens from ebay.


:lticaptd: :yikes: <- Just because they look funny.

Hi and welcome to FPN



That Parker has revolted.... no use writing if no one will be able to read it anyway.... :lticaptd:




Joking aside.. perhaps on these pages we can help you get the Parker going again...



Enjoy the forum

There's hope yet--remember how long it took to unravel the mysteries of hieroglyphics! Just kidding . . . Enjoy this forum and get that Parker going again!

Welcome !  


I hope you have been flushing the ink from your pens, b efore putting them away.  Dried ink will form a "cement" 

that clogs the pen.   :wallbash:     Find a cool, dark place for your ink.  Ink won't freeze in your climate, but it WILL mold,

and grow some floating colonies that fl present as "slime".     :wallbash:   


Slow your writing.  Concentrate on forming each letter as you want it to appear.  Write more often.  .

Verweile doch, du bist so schön !

My penmanship is far from elaborate or noteworthy, but it doesn't lessen my enjoyment from writing with a FP!


Matter of fact, it has improved! (slightly)  :rolleyes:
