Hello, I'm new to this forum. As a small introduction, I become a pen enthusiast around August 2017. I started with the Pilot Metro. I have a total of 10 different pens ranging from a Preppy to a E95s.

Out of my entire collection, my favorite pen is perhaps the TWSBI Classic, Sapphire Color, EF Nib. I don't understand why so many people don't like that pen, I LOVE it.

I tend to prefer piston-fillers. I have come too lazy to unscrew a section to operate a converter. Plus, piston-fillers tend to have a decent ink capacity.

I am not a huge fan of demonstrators or eyedropper pens. I never understood the appeal of either. I own a TWSBI Eco and while I love the pen, I wished it was a solid color, rather than clear. As for eyedropper, I'm too scared they'll break apart in my pockets.

That was a small summary of who I am. I hope to contribute and enjoy conversing with you all.

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 from Columbus, Ohio, USA. 

 

Never tried a TWSBI, but I did think about it, just getting started. 

 

I like the demonstrators if for no other reason I can see exactly how much ink is there and what color ink I have loaded. That said, I have about 7 pens inked right now and only two are demonstrators.

I like TWSBI pens since they're easy to disassemble.

I also like seeing my ink level without disassembling the pen which is why the Classic is my favorite pen. It has a neat ink window and I haven't had any leaking issues some have had.

I tend to prefer piston-fillers. I have come too lazy to unscrew a section to operate a converter. Plus, piston-fillers tend to have a decent ink capacity.
 

Welcome !  

 

Wow !   That  is  lazy.  By the way, the abbreviation for the month of June, is   " JUN ".   Now, THAT   is lazy.   :lticaptd:

 

I like a fountain pen that write well, regardless of the filling system.  I enjoy the ritual of filling my pen.  Eyedropper pens frighten me.  (So do clowns and fish with teeth)
