Hello Everyone


Thought I should formally join and introduce myself, having loitered and picked the bones clean on many an occasion - from your expert knowledge I have managed to restore the ubiquitous Teal '51, replace an errant J bar on a Stephens, and come to the realisation that God wrote the Book of Life using a Doric!


In truth, I love old (sorry, vintage) fountain pens! I can remember being given one as a child (an old Stephens) and covering myself in ink ... there must be a fetish somewhere that covers this! Anyway, I have fallen in and out of love with FPs since that time. I blame in part, of course, my go to dealers for rekindling the need (shame on you!), and seem to have accumulated quite few. I doubt there are any that would interest such an illustrious group, and I wish my excitement hadn't got the better of me on many of an occasion - that don't sound right. Of my faves are a new found love of Conway Stewart 58s - Please, Barry, no more! - and Parkers; work-a-day, 40s/50s Duofolds; nothing fancy, nothing glam, but simply do what they say on the tin!


Fantasy pens? I think there are only a couple for me: Doric's, of course - boxed set, obviously ... CS No 58 / 33 Tigers Eye, boxed; and an engine turned / lattice Waterman's (I think) that looked just beautiful but was out of my league!


Sorry to have gone on, and don't get me started on ink ....

Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell.  There are fountain pen trolls that live under bridges.

Welcome !  


Do you have pictures of your Doric ?  

Auf freiem Grund mit freiem Volke stehn. 
Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön ! 



    Say that again, I have a pen here somewhere...
