Hey everyone! Im Alex!


I am very new to this site and I made my first post a couple days ago! I lots of great feedback from this amazing community! A little bit about me, my name is Alex and I live in New York City. I am very new to the fountain pen world as I got my first 2 fountain pens, a Pelikan m800 and a Mont Blanc no. 32, right before Thanksgiving. I only got them because I got a box of assorted pens for $1 at a yardsale and I guess I hit the jackpot.  :D I made a post recently because after buying starter pens, I noticed thaty they write much better than the other two do. I am going to have the pens looked at by the staff of the Fountain Pen Hospital soon! I just have one quick question about this site: When I try to edit a post I have made or try to change my name it says I need 5 more approved posts. What is that? 


Nice to meet you all!

Hello Alex 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!
