I have always liked to write with a fountain pen! But I work in an environment that is very unfriendly for fountain pens ... After a few falls I therefore stopped. I recently read an article in the newspaper about fountain pens, enough to get my way back. I now use some pens from Mount Blanc with the ink Lavender Purple. After I discovered that here in Belgium one of the top of the fountain pens is made, I immediately ordered my first Conid fountain pen. I'm really looking forward to it!

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!

Welkom! Veel plezier!

Welcome to the board, enjoy!

 

Which Conid did you order? I have a regular and a kingsize and I'm sure they will not disapoint you!

 

I'm looking forward to your findings...
