It all started here: http://www.wsj.com/a...rite-1409934039

I asked for a Christmas gift and was thrilled to receive a Lamy Al-Star. Reading the FPN forums led me to a 1.1 cursive italic nib...and a Lamy Studio with a 1.1 cursive italic...and Lamy gold nibs in F and M.

Spelunking the forums brought me to now 10 pens, and I want to share that story. 2 are still in the mail, one actually at Mottishaw's shop because I found the nib scratchy with others I later used. I've had so much fun using every one, the inks, the purchasing, the beauty, but now at 10 I think I am really, really, really done. Or, at least, here I should stop so that my list isn't yet quite complete and could be surprised for a gift. Never found a Nakaya that completely sang to me, but maybe someday it'd be good to try...

A question: if I wanted to tell the story of the 10 pens, which really in many respects will be shameless bragging in some respects but in others a hope to give comparison among a few brands, where should I post such a blog? I don't want to parse some into the country, region, or brand-specific forums.

Many thanks for reading! I've learned and drooled so much from your posts!!

Comparison posts usually are found in the review sub forum for pens. I think.

Warmest Welcome !  

 

Nobody needs more than one fountain pen.    :lticaptd:


Auf freiem Grund mit freiem Volke stehn. 
Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !

Did I really say 10? Perhaps at a score I shall stop.
