  1. I recently got my first FP: a Pilot Metropolitan with a medium nib (plain black) and I'm starting to plan the next step. My criteria is as follows: 1) Affordable. I'd be comfortable in the $5-$35 range. 2) Quick drying. I'm a leftie so pens on the dry writer side is preffered. 3) Aesthetics. I'm not particularly a fan of the more modern designs such as the Lami Safari. 4) Nib size. I'm currently using a Pilot Medium, but I've heard from multiple people that a Pilot Medium is close to a Western Fine. So either fine or medium nib is good. 5) Feathering. As a student, I frequently write on cheap,

  4. Hi, I've come to this site to ask a favour. I am (was, just got made redundant, last day tomorrow) a contract cleaner for British Airways. I'm part of the team that rips out the cabins on their plane MOT's. Usually it's just gummy bears and Euro cents I come across when the seats are removed, but on one particular plane today I came across a rather funky fountain pen. Instead of chucking it, I took it home, as I was planning on giving it to my arty sister, but I googled it, and discovered not only is it very expensive, it's also now no longer made. I figured that the person who had lost it i
  5. Hello Fellow FPN users I want to know where can i buy Kaweco & TWSBI pens in India, especially in Delhi or Mumbai....?? Any help will be really appreciated....?
  6. TWSBI ECO - 1.1 Stub Nib This is the first non Indian pen I am going to review and I hope you all like the review and please leave the comments if you like. The same has been reviewed at my blog and you are welcomed to visit my blog to check the reviews : LINK This pen actually took almost 4 months to come into my hand. Even though I have TWSBI 580 Al Orange but I was more excited about the ECO. This pen was bought from Frank of FONTOPLUMO. It was booked as soon as it was launched and Frank was kind enough to hold the pen for more than a month and he was even kind enough to hand

  8. Below is my review on my newly received Montblanc Agatha Christie fountain pen. A more detailed review and photo's are available on my blog www.manllectables.com How does one actually review a pen that is 23 years old, not for sale except for via dealers and ebay? After a few weeks of use I won't be reviewing this pen as if it were new, quite simply because you can't buy it new anymore for the recommended retail price. I will instead attempt to review the pen as a collectible with today's prices to determine whether it is worth handing over your hard earned money to a dealer or re seller.
  9. Good day FPN friends! Its been some time since I’ve posted here but perhaps some of you may have read my reviews of Japanese pens in the past. My name is Nicholas and I write at www.inkypassion.com. I’m thankful that my site has given me the opportunity to meet many enthusiasts and enjoy unique pens. Many of you know that I have always had an interest in Japanese pens, and Maki-e was a natural progression – I trimmed my collection of over 40 pens to move to Maki-e because I really appreciate the fine artistry and craftsmanship. You can read some of my pen reviews on my site too! I have b

    Asa Spear Review

  11. Out of my recent acquisitions of 5 pens, the pen i am reviewing today is one of the new introductions by ASA Pens which adds to the growing list of their lineup. DESIGN: The pen is a quite long comparable to likes of Gama Kuyil and also it seems to be inspired from Gama Kuyil and in many ways it betters the look and feel of Kuyil. The grip section i feel is better than the kuyil. The barrel is just a bit thinner than Kuyil. ASA I.Can vs Gama Kuyil – Capped ASA I.Can vs Gama Kuyil – Uncapped The top of cap of ASA I.Can is bit longer and it gives the pen a distinct look. It comes in 5 co

  13. Hello everyone I always used fountain pens mostly for sketching or take quick notes from my classes. But I never took it as something serious (I mean, smoothness, tip of the nib, etc...) I´m an architect, who, since a long time, admires a spanish architect called Enric Miralles. I don´t want to bore you, but since I saw that he use FP´s, I started writing almost everyday with them. In fact , I think I started to collect them , having about 15 pens. This collection starts, trying to figuring out what pen did he use. It's funny how an image, can make you start collecting something. But , fri

  15. So, I acquired this nice looking pen. To my surprise, I am very satisfied with the way it writes. It is very smooth. The pen is on the heavy side, since it is made of some kind of metal (cant really identify the metal). Anyway, the reason I turned to the help of the fountain pen network is to identify it. At first I thought it was a chinese pen, but then I realized it had "ITALY" engraved on top of the clip. Therefore I hope you can help me to identify it (although I believe it will be some kind of entry level pen, since it has iridium point engraved on the nib). Thank you in advance, and here
  16. ASA – Galactic Jumbo Demonstrator ASA – Galactic was my first demonstrator. I never liked the demonstrators but i decided to go ahead with the purchase and amazingly I was the first one to buy this. Following is my review of the pen. Design & Build: My first demonstrator is a jumbo sized pen which has a fogged finish. The pen looks like what it is named “Galactic” The real beauty comes out when you ink up this pen. Aaaaah so beautiful. I have suddenly started liking the demonstrators. The pen is beautifully engraved with company logo on the barrel and also my name is engraved on the c

  18. Hello My Dear Fellows, I recall, that I mentioned that I already have an MB, even thoe I called my very first review "the first Montblanc Meisterstück". Well call my a liar, but the 121 doesn't count to me. I bought this pen for 50€ at a flew-market I worked at. It was in my even earlier days of collecting pens, so even the fact that I didn't get anything with this pen like a packaging or so didn't bother me. I went home full with joy and all this stuff because I just bought an MB! But this topic wasnt called "Tragedy" if there wasn't a tragedy. I filled the pen up with ink, so far so good,

  22. Hey guys, Does anyone know where I can pick up a Lamy 2000 (for less than $200) in Canada? I live in the Greater Toronto Area and shipping/customs/exchange rate coming in from the US is expensive. I've seen some retailers charge $200+ for a Lamy 2000 and that is out of my price range right now but I am dying to get my hands on one. Any suggestions?
