Hello colleague fountainpen freaks !
I'm Robert from Belgium.
For 5 years I remained a low profile collector, building up my collecction...

Today, @age of 57 it's time "to come out", share and enjoy pens that way to eachother.
As a technician, all started through the fascination for demonstrator pens with a Pelikan 200-Cognac.
After also came the melancholy for disappeared Belgian, Dutch and German brands, icon pens, filling systems and my incurable Montblanc adoration...

I must admit, I was exceptional lucky to meet and as anyone else to dodge Francis "Fountainbel" and Conid !
Over cordial years, trained and supported by Francis, I present myself today also available for repairs and maintenace.
If interested, contact me trough PM !

For today, below a picture from my Montblanc historical line-up from vintage to modern over model transfers...
Never complete, I continue chasing !
To be continued...
PENrob

PS : Special thanks to "Kenshiro" for copying his tray presentation system !

Welcome!  My mother is from Belgium so it is a country I have visited many times!  I will now have to do some research to find out more about Belgian pen manufacturers!  Thanks!

Hello Robert 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!

- Winston Churchill
