  1. Hello everyone! Just joined the forums. Still very new to nice pens and writing with them. I'm really enjoying it, struggling to find things worthy of being written. I started with a set of Pilot Metropolitans a few years ago, I think it was an impulse buy mostly, upon seeing them on amazon. I bought a medium nib black metro and a medium nib silver metro. (not sure why i bought the same nib) A bottle of parker quink to fill them and I was all set. I must have only used them a few times as I never realized even how to properly use them (writing angles, storage, refilling). They were sitti
  2. I have been thinking about starting a Sacramento area pen group and now that I skipped this semester of college I have more time to make it happen between now and September when I have to go back. I would like to see who would be interested. You don't have to be a Sacramento resident but I want to have an option for a group for people in and around Sacramento who can't make it to the bay area group get togethers. Who's in?!
  3. Yeah! I didn´t realize it could be a good idea to drop some lines here, at FPN, which is a pity, as we´re flying back to Spain tomorrow in the afternoon, so it´s only today that we can search for shops and/or Friends related to our common hobby We´re visiting the States (actually we are in Sacramento, California), so I was wondering if there´s any shop/place I should visit before flying back... It´s a pleasure visiting you back, sirs Have a nice day!

    Hello From Southern California!

    Hello! Craig here from Orange County California! I am extremely new to the world of fountain pens but I found it in a really cool way. When I was young, I had a family friend who gave me unique Christmas and birthday gifts. I received a LeBoeuf pencil one year and the next was a sterling silver dip pen. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2008 from a long battle with lung cancer. He was a world traveler, and hailed originally from Portugal. Now 8 years later we are still finding things he collected. Digging around in an old box, I pulled out 3 pens. A green Celluloid Pelikan 400 from the 50s, an
  5. Hey all, So I am pretty new at fountain pens. I currently only have 3 pens, but only really use 1 at the moment. Pens: Pilot Metro (current and favorite atm) Pilot Custom 74 TWSBI Vac 700 Reason I'm posting is I am looking for local groups I can travel to to meet new people, and a reliable repair guy for FP's. Both my Custom 74 and Vac 700 need Nib flow adjustment and I am too afraid to mess something up on my new pens!! I actually have not really been able to write with the 74 or 700 because the tines are too taught/close together so i have to exert too much force to get a nice flow

    Intro Hello

    Hello. I have been watching this forum off and on for a couple of years but finally recently joined. I am in Sacramento, California. I use fountain pens almost exclusively for drawing and sketching. I very much enjoy and appreciate reading all the marvelous posts and learning from this forum. I hope to humbly contribute a bit back, perhaps in the form of reviews for others here who love to draw with pen and ink, as thanks to you all for this wonderful resource you have all built!

  8. Okay I am just going to put this out there and see if anyone is interested in coming! I am planning on reserving the meeting room at the Elk Grove Public Library on Saturday, October 25th. Two times available are from 10:00 am to 11:30 am or 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Any preferences? Please voice them! I need to reserve the room and time asap, so if anyone is interested in attending please let me know as soon as you can. I planned this a couple months in advance hoping it will help people plan who want to come. I will be there whether or not anyone else shows. It is a nice library and I ha
  9. There is currently no group for those of us in the Sacramento area who love fountain pens, so let's create our own group! I think first we need to figure how many folks are in the area that would be interested in meeting. Then we can select a date, time and location to meet. I don't mind helping organize some of the details; but I would just love to hear feedback from those of you who live in the area and would be interested in getting together. If anyone is interested in being involved in a FPN group here in Sacramento please let us hear your thoughts!
  10. Are there any groups for collectors in the Northern California area? Especially in the Sacramento area? I am also looking for local area pen shows.
