Hi,

 

Just got up and running on this site and I'm new to collecting/using FP's.

 

Looks like a great site with a wealth of knowledge to be had.

Welcome aboard, Robby, 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. A couple of other websites with useful information for newbies include PenChalet, Jetpens and the Goulet Pen Company. Goulet has made quite a few videos available on their website and on YouTube, which are helpful with some procedures related to FP use. Have fun.

Welcome, Robby !  

 

I have an older brother in Delaware.  He likes to take people on drives, and pointing out Joe Biden's driveway.  

 

Do let anyone tell you what is, and isn't, "collecting".  Enjoy it, and we can learn from each other. 

 

Sooooo, whatcha got ?

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!
