Good Afternoon! 

 

I am Lisa, aka Li. I had fountain pens when I was at school, but they were mainly Parker Vectors. 

I have been collecting about a year now and the first pen to start this obsession off was the Lamy Safari Dark Lilac SE. 

I now have 50+ fountain pens ranging from starter pens to next level ones, including brands such as Jinhao, Wing Sung, Pilot, TWSBI, Lamy, Parker, Sailor and Visconti. 

My newest arrival is the Retro 51 Tornado Zodiac, and on its way is a Sailor Professional Gear Purple Cosmos. 

 

I'm also a Bullet Journalist, which is how I got back into fountain pens. 

 

Tell me, what is your favourite pen in your collection?

Welcome home Li.  Pull up a stump and set a spell.  Today it is a Danitrio Takumi size Chinkin based on the haiku 山の鳥 来てさわぎゐる 桜かな or "Yama no tori kite sawagi wiru sakura ka na" (The mountain bird arrived and disturbed the cherry blossom).

Welcome to FPN..

 

Jar, that is an amazing Pen.

 

I liked the Pilot Metropolitan Pen with an F nib, but, then I tried a Lamy with an XF nib; I really like this pen and it is my current favorite. I ordered a Pilot 74 with a Fine nib, but it was delivered with a Medium, so I am sending that back; really good price on that pen. 

 

I have a couple of Eversharp and I have been kind of liking their stiff nibs because they put down a fine line so I can write smaller, but, they are a bit scratchy.

Hello Li and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

 

Favourite pen? My Conway Stewart Churchill Poinsettia with a medium-stub nib.


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!
