Hello, I am Bob. I stumbled into FP the first of May and received my first FP on the 10th of May. It was suggested that I join one of the communities and since I'd found many great answers to my questions on FPN I decided to start here.

Welcome aboard, from Charleston, SC. As a newbie, you might look at the Reference Pages on a website called Richard's Pens: it has a wealth of info about the basics of fountain pens, their use and care, and it will help you avoid making some mistakes. When evaluating any pen you acquire, bear in mind that how it writes is a complex interplay of the pen, nib, ink, paper, and writer, so your experience will vary depending on the mix of the above. This is something you can only discover with experimentation on your own. Have fun.

Welcome, Bob !  

 

Which fountain pen did you get, recently ?

Hello Bob 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
