Hello, FPN and all it's users.


I am who I am. I come here frequently as a guest, going through topics and such, looking for the information I've been hunting for at that particular moment, which will usually come in the form of questions regarding inks or their reactions to certain tools. Seeing as I go to this website as much as I do, I said "why not" and I decided to make an account. So here I am.


I am a university student from the Philippines. I am someone who is very involved in the arts, mostly in illustration. I own a few fountain pens, not a lot but five, a Pilot Kakuno, a Pilot Metropolitan, a Platinum Preppy, and two Pilot Petit1s, are a start. I own many art supplies but I do not think you people would be so interested in them, this leaves me with the various brushes and nibs that I own which can be readily applied to calligraphy, lettering, drawing, etc and the inks that I have lying around, both of the fountain pen and the non-fp varieties.


I see fountain pens as beautiful, economical and very interesting things. The thrill of buying, using, caring and trying to understand them better is what makes me go back to these things all the time. Of my small and cheap collection, the Kakuno with its medium nib, which I swapped from my older Metropolitan, and the black inks I always place in it are my favorite. The smoothness of the writing experience, the lightness of the pen, the length and the colors just make want to use that pen as much as I do. The Pilot Petits are also just a sheer joy to use.

I don't know how to end this introduction so I'll just leave it at that.

Machibex, welcome to FPN! Sounds like you're familiar with the sub-forums focused on ink -- there are also three sub-forums focused specifically on Calligraphy here on FPN -- those might be worth checking out.

Welcome, Machibex !


I learn much from the answers offered for various questions.  Thank you for you contributions.

I have three Pilot Petit !  pens.  One each fountain pen, fibre tip, and brush tip.  They are fun to use.


Write with joy.

Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
