Hi everyone!! Fountain pen newbie here!!


I just discovered this new wonderful world and have started my collection with a Pilot Metropolitan in Retro Pop Purple, and a Lamy Safari in Charcoal, both pens have medium nibs. Hoping to add one more pen soon and start messing around with inks. I use my pens for both drawing and writing, though I do more drawing than writing. I'm still in the process of experimenting and getting to know my pens and the inks I managed to find in my area. 


Glad to be here with you all! Cheers! <3

Welcome, Rabbit!

I'm a newbie here too, although I've used fountain pens for many years. This is a most excellent group.


And the charcoal Safari is excellent, too. I also own one.

Welcome aboard from Charleston, SC. With the Safari, it's easy and fun to try different Lamy nibs and see the effects they have on writing and drawing as you experiment. The nibs are easy to change using the scotch tape method.

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!

Welcome !  


I am glad you appreciate medium nibs.  They put down a fair amount of ink, thus encouraging larger writing and the use of colorful inks.  


Write with joy.

Hi, guys!! So glad to be here; greetings from Mexico city.

Rather recently I joined this forum, although I have been a fountain pen users during the last 48 years. Actually this month/this year I am celebrating my 20th anniversary as a collector. My collection is close to 300 along with about 80 ink bottles. Have fun you all!!

Greetings and welcome!



...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.
