FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

Looks like the collar is split. This will probably fit into a regular holder, especially a vintage one. They tend to be more forgiving for different sizes. How’s the tipping?

You’ll need a magnifier of some sort to tell. They’re wonderfully flexy and good writers if they’re not too chewed up.
