Hello to all!

 

So glad to finally have a profile here. I've read threads on this site so many times to help answer my questions, and I figured it was finally time to engage actively and make connections.

 

I have always been a fountain pen lover, but have only recently started collecting, first with Rotring and more recently Sheaffer'S. I have some oddities I would love to post photos of to get advice with dating or just answer general "why does my pen look like this!?" kinds of questions.

 

I'll also post photos of my "Follow the Dot" Sheaffer'S collection at some point, still not complete (and perhaps I'll find help there also!)

 

Thanks again for all the help in the past, and it's good to be here to hopefully give back.

 

Matt

Welcome, Matt !    Hello, Matt !  

 

That question sounds like fun.  Please ask your questions.  It is surprising how much we learn from the answers, and especially from the discussions that follow. 

 

Welcome !

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!
