Hello! I am happy to have found this forum. Recently I've rediscovered my love for writing with fountain pens. When I was a kid in the '90s I did most of my writing in elemantary school with a fountain pen (that we got for free). After that I moved on to ballpoint pens and did pretty much all of my work in the past 18 years with those spring-loaded BIC pens. 

 

About half a year ago I bought a Lamy Safari and at the first stroke and watching the ink slowly dry on the paper I got hooked again!

 

I am 29 years old and work as an engineer. Currently my favorite fountain pen is a Lamy 2000 with a broad nib.

 

Salute!

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!

:W2FPN:  Glad to have you join us.  There's a Lamy forum in the Brand Focus section that you might enjoy for starters if you haven't already found it.  Lots of nice, helpful people here too.

Welcome, Jack !  

 

My LAMY 2000 is one of the smoothest writing pens in my collection.  I really enjoy using it.  The tiny metal "wings" on the section are of some concern to me.  The appear to be quite fragile.  Have you experienced a problem ?   I have not.

Nope, I actually grip the pen at both of them and they are of no concern to me at all. In fact, they help me to position the pen in my hand so that I'm always in that "sweet spot".

Welkom!

 

I remember the primary school fountain pens. They were always Bruynzeel pens I think. Mine was this dirty green color.

 

The 2k is my favorite pen, too!
