Welcome aboard, from Charleston, SC. 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.

Thank you Mike. I'll take a look at these websites. I found a good Youtube video on fountain pens -mistakes to avoid - and watched it carefully before inking my new pen, but yes, I have a lot to learn. Thanks again for the advice. I'll take a look.

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!

Greetings from Fort Worth, and welcome to FPN!  :W2FPN:

 

You have a very nice Montblanc Solitaire--congratulations! There is a huge amount to learn in the Montblanc forums here on FPN, and I hope to see you there. I also hope you will be able to attend the Dallas Pen Show in September. Let us hear from you.
