Welcome aboard, MG, from a neighbor a bit to the south, in Charleston. If you are 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. Bear in mind that how your writing appears on the page is a complex interplay of pen, paper, nib, ink, and handwriting, so be patient as you experiment with these variables. Enjoy, and good luck.



Thanks, Mike.  I will take a look at that page.  I've placed several orders with Goulet already and have a pretty hefty wishlist with them!  


I'm already experiencing the idea of "if only I could get this pen to write a little more like that one with this ink and that paper..."   A journey indeed.

Oh, I know this of myself

I assume as much for other people

We’ve listened more to life’s end gong

Than the sound of life’s sweet bells
