I bought my first fountain pen on a whim a couple of years ago, a parker victory. Read a little history on them and got intrigued. So I bought a couple more vintage parker pens. I really liked them, the craftmanship behind them and the history around each models. The process of cleaning a dried up pen (and change inc sac on a few) was fun. I bought ink and tested every new pen I bought, but I never realy started to using them, writing with them. After the first try they lay in the drawer unused. So after a while I sold most of them, but kept a few, laying in the drawer. There they have been most of the time until recently. But after getting more and more frustrated with ballpoints, I inked up a fountain pen again a couple months ago and has been using and enjoying them more and more. Even bought a couple of new pens...

So here I am, been lurking here for a while and learning a lot, and when I got trouble with a parker 51 I decided to join.

My collection is so far these:
Parker 51 (2)
Parker 51 flighter (needs a new breather tube)
Parker Duofold
Parker Slimfold
Parker Victory
Parker Vacumatic (in need of restoration)
+ 3 not functional pens

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!
