Hello all,

Saying hello from Iraq, though very new here I have enjoyed what I read and have learnt a lot, and of course the "pens to buy" list multiplied by 10 suddenly.

Though have admired fountain pens for long time, I have just recently decided to start a collection, it's not easy task specially in Iraq, but I will do my best, travelling in few days to another country so will try to get some new pens and inks.

Hello Margana, a lovely name.

It all started when I went to university my father gave me a sheaffer imperial ii deluxe and a parker 25 which he used when he was in university, so I have a special love for parkers and sheaffers, but on my "to buy" list I have the pelikan, waterman, sailor, pilot, twsbi, kaweco, omas, aurora, lamy ....

Best regards

Welcome, Northstar !  

 

Using and collecting fountain pens can be very rewarding.  There are so many varieties.  One is encouraged to write to others.  Please ask questions freely.  We all learn from the answers.  Be safe in your travels.  

*****************************

God willing, may all be well with you.

Hello again,
Thank you all for your comments.

Ghost plane: in theory, yes I am suppose to find good vintage pens, haven't yet but will definitely watch for them (already got an early parker 45 from my uncle, and aunt owns a brand new parker 51 which she refused to give me).

Sasha Royale: yes I am really enjoying the pens I have, and yes we all learn by asking and I will be doing that often, specially if I come across some vintage pens that need care and maintenance.
Will let you all know what I will buy during my travel when I am back.

Morgana: yes that's a big list, actually I even have the particular models for each brand that I want to buy, but to minimize the list, the sheaffers and parkers and pelikan and waterman are of higher priority.

Best regards
