I loved fountain pens years ago but sadly my children killed the nibs of the ones I liked when they were little and I had to put them away.    But I have rediscovered that I still love them!   And now that the offenders are grown I will consider chopping off their fingers if they touch my new ones.

Welcome....

 

If they do choose to forfeit their finger's, just hope that the policeman that takes the report likes fountain pens. 

 

You: Well officer, the damaged that nib. 

 

Officer: Arrest them no excuses for that!

Welcome! You will find lots of great information here (some about replacing nib) and many suggestions to expand your collection.
Cheers,

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!

- Winston Churchill

Welcome (?)

 

Certainly, lock up your prized fps.  There are some inexpensive and rugged fountain pens that 

can distract kids.  Maiming of children is never recommended, even to defend fountain pens.  

I recommend a locking pen case / cabinet, strong word, and Taser.   :lticaptd:
