Thank you for the warm welcome !
Welcome, Joey !
"Wet noodle" ? I guess you desire a fountain pen with generous ink flow, and a nib with a lot of "flex". This pen might not be prohibitively expensive. Some "nib-meister" might have a large, soft, gold nib. What size pen would you choose ? As big as your Sailor 1911 ? Thinner ? Much thinner ? Choice of filling system ? There are a lot of vintage, lever-fill pens around. This is a good place to learn and discuss your plan.
You are welcome to practice your English on us, although I have no difficulty understanding your English. (Certainly, it is better than my Australian. )
Write with joy.
Size really doesn't matter. I prefer lever filler, or something that is not messy to use.
I have looked around. Many of you recommended Mauricio Aguliar. Although his pen are very nice, they are very expensive.
Looking to buy ~200 USD or less.
Welcome to FPN, Joey! I used to have a Sailor 1911 as well, it got stolen
but I have 4 pens now, ST Dupont, Waterman Carène, TWSBI Vac 700R, Lamy Joy. I use the ST Dupont mainly for writing, and drawing with the other ones! Have fun and enjoy your time while at FPN!
Well..... that's sad to hear. I often lost my ballpoints pens too; Borowing it to someone, stolen, too shy to ask back.
Lastly, What is the average age of FPN users ? It's rare for young people to use them.
Just being curious.
