Hello all, I've pulled up a stump and started counting my goodies -- currently eight fountain pens and six bottles of ink. I was lurkng for months after a co-worker let me try his Lamy Safari once this past summer.

Well, that was the beginning of a most pleasurable obsession. I have questions, of course, but I will do my besst to post them in the right areas but I've seaarched and searched and can't quite find a solution to my Pilot Metropolitan nib/ink problem that started with Noodler's Kung Te-cheng ink that has rendered that pilot (one of three) completely useless.

See ya all around the forums!

Welcome !  

 

I like best, in my Pilot Metropolitan, Pilot Black cartridges.  

 

I hope a thorough cleaning curse your pen.

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!

- Winston Churchill
