Hello lovely FPN community. I have joined the network after lurking for weeks.

 

I'm returning back to fountain pen after two decades. 

I have resurrected this hobby again, with the inception of year 2019, with an objective to restore my handwriting like back in days when i was proud of my handwriting. I made a considerable distance from pen and paper, due to profession life of this digital age. Not anymore :) !!

 

I currently use few Parker and Camline fountain pens with cartridges, procured form my local stationary shop and planing to get myself metropolitan, safari, TWSBI, etc in Q1 2019.

Local market has changed a lot in these years, now FPs are not even readily available here and if available in some stores, they are considered as luxury item and priced exorbitantly. 

 

I hope through the help of fellow members, I will be able to discover places where i can buy genuine pen at competitive prices.

I am not worried about inks at this point of time as Diamine, ships to India at very reasonable price and planning to order consignment shortly, batched in set of 4 inks per consignment so that i wont be levied any customs. And since I'm not a fan of blues and blacks, my first batch may contains: 

  • Diamine - Ancient Copper
  • Diamine - Peach Haze
  • Diamine - Havasu Turquoise
  • Diamine - Syrah (planing to make it my daily driver in twsbi eco - medium)

I'm also planing to get Diamine - Skull and roses (form a Germany based retailer, who ships to India at affordable charges ) :)

 

 

I take this opportunity to thank the Mods, Admins and all fellow members for maintaining the quality of information in this forum!

 

 

Edit: I'm also planning to get into calligraphy, at later point of time :)

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!

Greetings from Durham in northeast England. Sounds like you are signing up for the same reason as me: regaining something like reasonable handwriting. I suspect many of us started like that. But be warned - as YGV says above, fountain pens can be addictive! Somehow there's always one more pen, one more ink, one more whatever, that it seems you need. It's about the best fun in the world.
