FPN appearing slow

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi, fellow pen lovers. I'm Magnus, a Swedish university professor who have been using fountain pens for many years. Nevertheless, it's only in the last couple of years I have become something of an addict. I have about a hundred fountain pens in my collection. The lion's share, I have bought at flea markets or antique shops for a couple of Euros (or less) each. In Sweden, it's quite easy to find older German, Danish and English models from the 1930s onwards. But I have acquired some better pens, too, and I use a few of them on an almost daily basis: a Pelikan, a Montblanc and a Parker Duofold. The Fountain Pen Network is really a treasure trove when you try to learn more about these interesting little things. Best wishes, Magnus

Welcome, Magnus !  

 

You have access to the 1930's German-made, student pens.  I have two, much-cherished, all plastic, 

un-named, German piston fillers, from that period.  Amazing product !  

 

Enjoy your time here.

Hello Magnus 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
