Brand sparkling new to the FP arena. 

I am Left handed, and write below the line, mirroring my right-handed friends  :wub:

 

Where i live no shop have; fountain pens, ink or cartridge. So i have FP and ink on the way by mail.

 

The style i like is "overhand cursive" that might change. Now i am looking for some paper i can print out with the alphabet in the margin.

 

 

Cheers

 

 

Post script: While waiting for my pen and ink to arrive, i use a pencil when learning to write "overhand cursive".

Welcome from Missouri!

 

I purchase some of my pens from my local shop but typically online.

 

FPN has a good classifieds section.  Take a look at it.

 

Good people here also! Ask lots of questions and do utilize the search tool.  There is a vast amount of information here.

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

 

Over here it is also a "fountain pen desert" and I order most of my pens and other accessories via the internet.


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!
