Hi, I'm George and I live in Athens, Greece.  Big fan of fountain pens, I'm using them exclusively, since I turned 18 (I'm now 50).

My favorite is a Parker 75 fountain pen, from 1964, that I inherited from my grandfather. I use it every day and it rights so smoothly ! I also own a Centennial Parker Doufold Lapis Lazuli, a Montblanc Red Gold - coated classique, a Cartier Trinity and several cheaper fountain pens.

Glad to find you, I have so much to read here !

Welcome, George !  

 

I also cherish a Parker 75  Cecelé , given to me by shipmates of my sea deployment.

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!

Hi

I didn’t want to open another topic so I’ll make my introduction in the same one.

I’m a big fun of fountain pens since 90’s when as a present I had a Waterman expert. The last four months I was reading some of your themes, so today I decide to join you. I’m happy to meet you all.

Hello and welcome to you  :)
