My first post in the forum after consulting the posts here (redirected from Google search) a number of times.


I have always wanted to write using a nice fountain pen because my deceased father was a secretary for an admiral in the navy, and he has admirable script handwritings.


I had no luck in fountain pens because all those I tried were all too scratchy - either kind of clogged or with ink that are too dry.

Things have started to change when I am in Germany: even the small book stores or stationeries stores will have some nice notebooks and fountain pens (e.g. those approachable LAMY models) and they actually write, and quite smoothly indeed!


I start to have hope in getting my first fountain pen - those that don't use cartilage, to try to write more beautifully and perhaps even to start learning calligraphy!

And most importantly learn to enjoy writing in pen and paper and ink more.


There is a post about some of the more chic stationery stores in Berlin, probably not the most up-to-date but will still apply:

Top 6 Stationery Stores in Berlin


Hope to write more in ink!

Welcome !   


I hope you find a convenient store.   To shop for a fountain pen in Germany is to be a child in a candy store.   :puddle:        

LAMY,  Montblanc,  Soennecken,  Pelikan,  Kaweco,  Diplomat,  Reform.   


Good hunting.

Welcome to the insanity. I hear there are lovely stationery stores in Germany & you'll be able to acquire Akkerman inks, at the source!
Have fun.

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.

Welcome to our warm nook of the internet, where you can share this beautiful hobby with good and friendly people. Or as we say in low Saxon: Mooi a'j dr bint! (Good you're here.)

Forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them so much. - Oscar Wilde.

Hello and welcome for 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
