Hi guys,

 

I am new to the forum. I live in Germany although I am original from Spain.

I am relatively new to the fountain pen community so I am interested in learning from other fountain pen users.

 

Best,

Carlos.

Welcome aboard, Carlos, 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.

Dear Herrjaeger,

 

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I already visited JetPens and subscribed to Brian's Youtube Channel (also I have already watched all his 101 series and many other videos from him) and The Pen Habit (youtube and Matt's website http://penhabit.com). I have to admit I did not know PenChalet (now added to my list, thanks).

 

Kind regards,

Carlos.

Welcome, Carlos ! 

 

What do you currently use for daily writing ?

Welcome, Carlos !

Thanks Sasha Royale,

 

Currently I use Noodler's Black on a Faber-Castell Loom. I have other fountain pens and inks but I have found that combination good for most of my daily uses (including copy paper at work, etc...)

I am thinking on buying a TWSBI soon as I do not have a demonstrator and I find them cool, affordable and I have read good things about them.

 

Best,

Carlos.
