   Greetings from Bahrain. I'm Vishnu Nair, working as a finance professional. My love for fountain pens started once I joined here for work, as I happened to see the collection of fountain pens that belongs to my Director. My collection started from Lamy Safari charcoal black and now I have around 20 FP's and 40 ink shades. Looking ahead for great tips and support from this forum. Thanks

Hello Vishnu 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 aboard, from Charleston, SC. As you are a newbie, you might look at the Reference Pages on a website called Richard's Pens: it has a wealth of info about the basics of fountain pens, their use and care, and it will help you avoid making some mistakes. A couple of other websites with useful information for newbies include PenChalet, Jetpens and the Goulet Pen Company. Goulet has made quite a few videos available on their website and on YouTube, which are helpful with some procedures related to FP use. There is a series of posts here, called A Newbies Guide to Inks, which is worth reviewing (you’ll find it as the first pinned topic under the Inky Thoughts Subforum). Bear in mind that how your writing appears on the page is a complex interplay of pen, paper, nib, ink, and handwriting, so be patient as you experiment with these variables. Enjoy, and good luck.

Welcome, Vishnu !


You are the second person, by the name of Vishnu, I have encountered.  The other is on the east coast of the USA, and driven into fountain pen use by my efforts.  


Write with joy.

Greetings from Columbus, Ohio, USA. 


Lamy Safari charcoal black is a great starter pen, I love mine (but it is not black)...
