Greetings from Northeast Wisconsin. Ive only been interested in fountain pens for about the last year or so but seem to have been averaging about 2 a month during that time. Its been about 30 years since I first tried a fountain pen, but that initial attempt (cheap disposable) didnt go well, so I never gave FPs a second chance until recently. I really shouldnt have waited this long.

Ive kind of settled on my daily carry pens, though I do have a Lamy 2k under the Xmas tree that may join my daily rotation. Otherwise I carry a Parker 51 and a few TWSBI Vac Minis. Im finding that fountain pens help with my dysgraphia; if only Id found this out during my school years.

Anyway, great to be here, looking forward to learning lots.

Brian

Hi from the Milwaukee area (and childhood summers in Oconto county). I assume you know about Anderson pens in Appleton.

One test is worth a thousand expert opinions.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Im definitely having fun perusing the wealth of information in the archives.

Yes, Im well aware of Anderson Pens; my first FP and several others came from them as well as most of my inks. I feel fortunate to have a LPS nearby.

Welcome aboard! Do you have to be careful ordering ink, so that it doesn't freeze on your porch?

Welcome to Fountain Pen Network!

 

Returning to fountain pens after decades is a refreshing experience.

 

Writing with a Parker 51 is an especially pleasant experience.

 

May 2020 be a year of much writing!

 

Tom K.
