Hello from Macclesfield, England.


I came upon FPN on my search for information on which fountain pen to buy and have finally joined the community.


Tasked with writing wedding thank you cards, I found I could no longer write legibly after years of excessive computer use. I decided to do something about it and embarked on a quest to improve my penmanship.


It started with a Lamy Al-Star where I experimented with nibs, then it has gone a little out of hand with my Twsbi 580AL silver, the 580AL Lava and now 580AL Green. 


So that's a little about me. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Greetings! Fountain pens seem to grant every reason to improve one's penmanship.  :P



...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.

Hello... :W2FPN:


That's a nice little collection you've got going there. Will that suffice, or do you have eyes on something else?
