I am a school teacher working and living in South Korea. I have three pens: a TWSBI 580, Pelican M800, an artisan turned deer-horn IPN and a Shaefer Calligraphy pen from the set I got when I was 13 years old.
I started to use fountain pens regularly in University where I would buy $1 fountain pens in lots of five since one or two in every five would work.
Nowadays, I usually use my TWSBI to go to work and the Pelican at home. I like that Pelican so much that I rarely take it out since I often misplace sunglasses and fountain pens. Also the cleaning ladies in Korean Universities are relentless about pocketing anything left behind....sunglasses, coffee tumblers, even my class logs...you can't leave anything behind. I've lost two Lamys, a Pelicano and another cheaper Pelican to these ladies. ... anyway they are fine people, you just hvae to be careful when leaving the room....if they clean it, anything not bolted down goes.
So looking forward to using this forum.
