I've always been passionate about handwriting and calligraphy, so I naturally enjoy using fountain pens.

I'm left handed - I totally disagree with the idea that fountain pens are not suited for lefties as I use them all the time. I'm an underwriter.


J'espère utiliser ce site afin d'améliorer mon écriture et peut-être de faire connaissance avec d'autres gauchers !

Welcome!  Bienvenue!  


My twin brother is a leftie.  He had to use fountain pens in elementary school in Germany just like me.  And he survived...

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!

Welcome! You will find lots of great information here.

None of us knows how long he shall live or when his time will come. But soon all that will be left of our brief lives is the pride our children feel when they speak our names.
