Hello everybody, I just joined Fountain Pen Network after a recent joining of the fountain pen world.  I've used cheap ballpoint almost all my life until earlier this year, when I saw some fountain pens at Office Depot and thought I would try it out.  They were wonderful!  Since then, I have purchased many pens.  I am so glad I threw away all my old pens.  (Pilot Ballpoints, a dime a dozen!)  I am really looking forward to being a part of FPN.  Thanks again!

Welcome !  

 

Alternative :  All those use ballpoint pens from school, and those cheapies that come in the mail, 

can be donated to library and random "pen cups", for use by ordinary people.    :rolleyes:  

 

Enjoy.  This hobby can be a lot of fun.

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!
