    Hi From Iu! (Indiana)

    Graduating senior in Math & Econ going into a Quant role soon, but not before traveling abroad for 2 months! (Staying in Berlin most of the time) Sometime around last November I bought my first pen, the Caran d'Ache Leman Grand Bleu. I love their colored pencils so found out about their pens since. So beautiful, but my writing is not the best. Open to meeting you all, and reading your advice and tips in general!
  2. Almost 5 months ago I "designed" and had this pen case tailor-made for me: http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii33/mmmcosta/Watches/PenCase_zps27acfdc3.jpg Here's the story: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/245327-tailor-made-pen-case/ Earlier today the cartridge went empty - in the small side pocket, a spare was available for replacement. Best! Marcelo
  3. After using my modest collection for many years, I have come to the conclusion that my favorite pen materials are laquer over brass (or metal). I have narrowed down my next purchase to either a S. T. Dupont Elysee or a Caran d'Ache Leman. Probably the basic black with silver trim for both. I have no experience with the S. T. Dupont brand and only had an Ecridor Rotation from CdA. I am really impressed with CdA quality but hate the pencil sizing of most of their models. I believe that both companies produce quality FPs but would really like to hear from FPN if one stands above the other based on quality and nib performance. Price is similar for both so not really a factor. Buying both at this time is not possible. Which one would you pick and why? Does anyone own both? Pictures are always welcome.
  4. I wanted a single pen case to carry my fountain pens: Waterman Carène, Parker Premier and Caran d'Ache Leman. I found some interesting options, but had to import them. There was also another issue: I wanted a case that could also carry a spare cartridge. What I did was, based on this Lamy design, http://www.pensandleather.com/images/products/detail/lamy_dialog_pen_case_open.jpg asking for a tailor-made one at a good shoe shop at my hometown - these people know how to work with leather. They even put a kind of shammy inside, to keep the integrity of lacquer and external paiting. But what makes it really tailor-made, to my "specifications", was the little "pocket" to carry the cartridge: http://i260.photobucket.com/albums/ii33/mmmcosta/Watches/PenCase_zps27acfdc3.jpg Not that beautifully finished, but very functional. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-cool14.gif Regards, Marcelo
