Dearest Members and Visitors of our little Fountain Pen Nut House on the digital prairie,


We are proud to announce our latest victim volunteer to take up moderating here on FPN, by a person with specific interest in all pens Montblanc, and are excited for him not only to moderate the Montblanc forum, but also to share his knowledge of Montblanc pens with us in his new capacity!

Thank you, James, for taking this up!


Please welcome the one and only jamesgibby!


Warmest regards, Wim

Congrats and Welcome! 

Fountain pen novice. I am aquiring pens at a frightening pace, I am afraid it might be an addiction... I see I am not alone here on FPN! Latest acquisitions - Platinum 3776 Kumpoo with Diamine Eau de Nil, Opus 88 Koloro inked with Diamine November Rain, Franklin-Christoph Model Pocket 66 prototype inked with Franklin-Christoph Honeycomb.

I'm very new here but would also like to say welcome (to a fellow Doyle fan).  My first good pen was a MB.  That was 32 years ago and I've almost licked the PTSD... ;-)


Still, somehow, I use fountain pens.

Hello James...

Thanks for volunteering... dont care about being late in sending my felicitations because I dont log into here often enough ... brain fog among other things.

So... Montblanc pens...lovleeeee,,,  cant afford one like, SO, Ive got a Jinhao replica, the 159.... AAAuuuuugggghhhh I hear you shout but its a nice pen from the Asian community (Hope thats right) and look at the calligraphy they can do.


SO best wishes, dont stand any shenanigans.
