Hello! I am a long time fountain pen user. By humble beginnings were the Sheaffer pens you could buy just about anywhere. That was the 70s. For a long time I was a one or two pen kind of gal, leaning towards Watermans and using only black ink. Ive branched out in the last few years.

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!

Welcome !  

 

Do you still have any of the old Sheaffers, from school days ?

Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
