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
- Pelikan M400 (fine nib)
- Montegrappa Parola (medium)
- Parker Latitude (fine i think)
- Parker Urban (fine)
- Platinum #3776 steel nib (medium)
- Cross Century II (fine nib)
- Cross Century II (broad nib)
- Cross ATX (fine nib)
- Sheaffer 100 (medium Nib)
- Lamy Vista (medium)
- 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.
