Good day Mates!

 

I'm Andy, a newbie who's discovering his love for fountain pens. I actually used a desk fountain pen, most probably a vintage montblanc when I was about 10 years young. My Mom was working in a government bank and I think it was a gift from the company that she never used and just brought it back at home which I luckily played around with. I vaguely remember how I would ink it, but I do remember dipping it in an ink bottle and had to be careful because it would stain my fingers. I fell in love with writing at that very young age. Been lurking around the forum and reading as much as I can, and because of the great advice that it would be better to purchase a pre-loved Montblanc than trying to buy it full retail. I am on the hunt for for Montblanc 146, and hopefully I'd get one for a fairly decent price.

At present I bought a pilot penmanship EF and a Lamy safari medium nib, trying to test out the different nibs and get a feel of re-using a fountain pen.  Will start to purchase some quality fountain pen friendly paper too to help me on my journey, and I guess I'll acquiring some of my friends home addresses so I can send them a thoughtful letter lovingly written on a fountain pen. Email may be the future, but handwritten letters will always remind us of all things good about the past.

 

 

Here's to a long and blissful journey ahead with fountain pens!

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 and G'day !  

Good news.  I can confirm that ink still stains the fingers quite effectively.   :lticaptd:
