They usually just come to London.


How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed. Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. One to ignore who uses 'I' four times in each post. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly. Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

Does anyone know if there will be a Conid presence at the Sheffield show?

Definitely not.

Thank you both.

 

I was hoping to make it to the London meet to handle them for size etc, but unfortunately I had to be somewhere else, it'll just have to wait.

A big thank you to all for your suggestions. I will check out Sarj. Im not sure if I will be able to make it to Madrid because I will be going to Japan in a few weeks. I will see if I can manage to check out a few fountain pen shops while there.

Your closest pen show (assuming there isn't one in Denmark or Sweden) may well be the Hamburg pen show, which I believe is held in early October each year.. So, more a 'for next year' piece of information...
