Hi everyone.

I live in Castle Hill (Northwest of Sydney, Australi), originally from China.
My first fountain pen is a red Lamy Safari EF, purchased in high school, loved it so much, I even enjoyed taking notes and doing assignments, just so I get to use my Lamys.  :lol:
Stopped using fountain pens (or any pens really) when I was in university doing my IT degree, almost everything was done online/on a computer, totally forgot how a fountain pen feels.
It's about 2 years ago, youtube randomly suggested a video in the "up next" and automatically played, its the one that features the Spencerian customization on a Pilot Falcon, I didn't even know flex nib existed before that video.  :o
After the video, I bought my first flex fountain pen, a Pilot custom 912 FA, and fell in love with FP again. I also started to like Calligraphy from that time.
I'm still fairly new to the FP/calligraphy world, would love to share and learn from here.
Hope to make some new friends!  :)

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


Beautiful pens and beautiful handwriting. 

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!

A very cheery welcome from Brisbane (AU).  Always nice to see another Aussie.  You certainly piqued my interest with "A Lover's Complaint" by Shakespeare. I cheated, didn't recognise the work  so had to look it up. :-) Love to hear the background story. ;-)

Welcome, Cassie. That's some awesome magic you did with that FA nib of yours!




Mine frustrated so much I ripped it out from the section and feed and snapped the metal with my fingers.

As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
