Greetings from Cyprus

 

I came accross this forum where I have found fantastic information on all types and brands of fountain pens.

 

My experience with fountain pens started during high school, throughout which I quite often used a Parket Jotter (i think) for note taking. However, after a significant pause from fountain pens throughout my university time, my interest in pens generally sparkled again. At the time though I started using ballpoints :(

That was until i dared to buy for myself a MontBlanc Boheme (medium nib). The pen was striking, and I could not resist it.

Although that small MontBlanc got stolen from me during a trip, I still think it is the best I owned. During the 3 years I owned it, I hardly used any other pen.

 

Currently, I own

 

Fountain Pens

  1. Pelikan M400 (fine nib)
  2. Montegrappa Parola (medium)
  3. Parker Latitude (fine i think)
  4. Parker Urban (fine)
  5. Platinum #3776 steel nib (medium)
  6. Cross Century II (fine nib)
  7. Cross Century II (broad nib)
  8. Cross ATX (fine nib)
  9. Sheaffer 100 (medium Nib)
  10. Lamy Vista (medium)
  11. Lamy Nexx (medium)

Plus an assortment of Ballpoints and Rollerballs eating dust in a pen case.

 

I will try soon to post a few handwritten reviews of these pens 

 

Inks I have used.

Cross Blue  and  Black (I think both cross inks were made by Pelikan)

Parker Quink Blue, Green, washable blue, blue-black and black

Pelikan Edelstein Topaz,

Sheaffer Skrip Blue
