Greetings!

 

:W2FPN:


...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.

Thanks a lot for your warm welcome! 

 

Answering your question: At the moment I only have a MontBlanc 149 Platinum, one Parker 45 (70s, Argentina), Parker 51 (60s, USA), Waterman W3 (40s),  two INOXCROM (Spain), tree Parker Vector, One LAMY Joy set and a few cheap chinese pens. The next step: another nice vintage celluloid gold nib pen.

 

Thanks again!

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

- Winston Churchill
