Hi my fellow fountain pens lovers it's a pleasure to have found this web site. I learn writing Chinese in brush but these days I prefer fountain pens!!


The other week we had a OFCOM survey interviewer knocking on our door  about our internet service in our village.


We invited her in and I let her carry on with my wife for the interview.


20 minutes my wife asked if I could talk to the lady. 


It happened that she noticed some of my fountain pens were on the table with a bottle of Cross ink.


We started to chat and she showed me her Pelikan M1000, Lamy 2000 and Edison Menlo.


To cut long story short she recommended me of this wonderful and resourceful web!!!


Here are some of my collection and the videos I made.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


I bought two Conway Stewart Churchill fp's last year, both with custom medium-stub nibs; fabulous pens in every way; lovely balance, beautiful materials (bracket brown and poinsiettia) and a nib that suits my writing style 100%. 


Enjoy your time here.

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

Welcome !  


Like neurotics, and Cherokee Indians, and tea drinkers, fountain people are more prevalent than we realize.  (My wife is all four.)  


Nice collection.  Thank you for sharing.
