Hello Everyone,

 

I started getting into fountain pens after receiving one as part of a subscription box back in December of last year. It was a Kaweco Sport. Fast forward to present day and I'm nearly 20 pens in and loving it. There's so much to learn in addition to which pens match one's multifaceted preferences. As it turns out, I'm partial to both broad and stub nibs.

My most recent purchase was a Montegrappa Brenta di Notte LE and it's gorgeous yet has more tooth than I'm used to in a broad nib. I'm  attending the Northwest Pen Roundup tomorrow in Portland and expect to be similarly overwhelmed in a good way as I was at SW Celebration V in Orlando. I look forward to learning more from the great resources and information available here.

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!
