Hello, fountain pen network!


I have been interested in Fountain Pens for around a year now and have decided to join the forums.


The pens I have/ have used include:

Pilot Varsity

Panache Caligraphy Pen

Lamy Safari


And my most recent, the Monteverde Invincia (stealth black).


It will be a pleasure to talk in further detail!

Welcome - I hope you enjoy the forum. There are lots of knowledgeable people here who are more than willing to inform, admire and enable.

Welcome, Nick !


If you keep the Pilot Varsity (disposable), it can be refilled.  Somebody got ink into it once, so can you.
