Heya, I'm a new member to this fountain pen community.

I was drawn in when, one day, at the beginning of the year, one of my classmates came to school with a Charcoal Lamy Safari, and I, being the curious bugger I was, begged to use it.

Since then I've fallen in love with the instruments but as a student on a budget, I cannot splurge too much.

Thus I have come to this website to avoid making uninformed decisions

Thanks.

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!

Welcome aboard, from Charleston, South Carolina. 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.

Welcome !  

 

Many of us enjoy fountainpenism on a budget.  Tell us your limits, and discover some excellent values in fountains.  What do you like about your Lamy ?  What would you change ?
