Hi everyone. I'm new to FPN but am not new to fountain pens. I have been using them for a few years now. I mostly use inexpensive pens, as I am a student and cannot afford expensive pens. I will be starting medical school in August, and I plan on using fountain pens throughout medical school and beyond.

Some pens I own include: Jinhao X450, Jinhao 159, Bülow X750, Noodlers Ahab, Noodlers Konrad, Pilot Metropolitan, Monteverde Prima, and a Sailor Magellan. I recently received the Sailor as a wedding gift, and I am in love with the pen.

Welcome to FPN and greetings from Detroit, Michigan, NM12209!! Best of luck to you in MedSchool. Look forward to your future posts...although I suspect they'll be limited given the demands of MedSchool. Enjoy your time here.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Even though I just acquired my first serious pen with a gold nib (the Sailor Magellan), I find myself browsing the internet for my next pen. I rarely buy anything though, I tend to look more than anything. That said, if anyone has suggestions for pens that would not be excessively expensive, but are still nice pens, I would appreciate all input. I tend to like the cigar shaped pens, and since seeing the Sheaffer Balance OS in person, I have been looking at those. I am also interested in Pelikan, Mont Blanc, and some Visconti pens, but those are all far out of my reach in terms of cost. They currently serve as eye candy for me.

While I am thinking of it, can anybody tell me why I can't view a person's profile? I have tried and tried. Even when I try to go to the member list, I receive a message that says, "You do not have permission to view the member listing." Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the Fountain Pen Network. Glad you have joined us. I haven't any pens as expensive as your recent Sailor Magellan, but I can tell you about one brand of fountain pens that were well designed and well made from quality material. What is more, they are simple to use and last for decades. If you want a different nib size or style in one, you simply screw out one nib and screw in another - no sending it off to a shop to have it changed. The fountain pen: The Esterbrook!

 

I hope you enjoy your time here. Congratulations on your wedding.
