Hello! First time here at the FPN. Always knew that I would end up making an account on here due to my growing interest in fountain pens but I just never got around to it. I have heard great things and since now I have something that I will probably need knowledgeable help with, I decided to make the plunge.

My collection so far goes from the classic Metro and Al-Star, to my Invincia (Brass), Diamond 580L, and a wonderful Jean-Pierre Lepine Indigo that my parents got me on their trip to France. Other pens of note, I guess, are my Cross ATX with the insignia of the Royal Palace of Norway (grad gift from a friend's ambassador parents), and my Parker 75 in the sterling silver crosshatch (inheritance from my grandfather).

All in all I just hope to soak in the knowledge and good vibes that I hear just oozes from this community and to be able to engage with others that share the same passions as I do.

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 !  

 

How wonderful to have your grandfather's Parker 75 ! Cherish and use it, in his memory.  

Write letters with it, to friends and family.  They will appreciate that you keep it in service. 

 

Write with joy/


Auf freiem Grund mit freiem Volke stehn. 
Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
