I've found this site by searching fountain pens in the web. It seems to be a really good way to learn more about Fountain Pens. Actually I live in Sunnyvale CA, I'm from Mexico, and I've two pens a Pelikan M400 with F nib, and a M205 demonstrator with a custom 0.3mm nib that I bought from ahtzib through this site. I've chosen Pelikan because I made some research and I found that they were commonly reliable and easy to use.


Thanks for reading.

Welcome from the East Bay. You'll find a lot of great info and friendly folks here. There are even local club meeting for when you feel more comfortable. Pelikans are popular choices, but I warn you that spending time here will lead to a wandering eye and new pen desires.


Start posting, get engaged and have fun while learning.

Welcome, Elira !   


You chose well.  For your future consideration -- The Pelikan M800 has a pistom made of brass.  The pen is slightly larger than the M400, and notably heavier.    Sometimes, one prefers a bigger pen.

Greetings and welcome! I know my fellow Californians more often pray for rain these days, even in sunny Sunnyvale. Enjoy the browsing, learning, and daydreaming. Your 2 pen collection may soon grow.
