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:
Hope to write more in ink!
