  1. Hello! My name is Michael Benham and recent member to FPN. Since high school, through college and all these years past, I’ve always liked and carried nice pencils and pens. Now almost exclusively I prefer to carry and have fountain pens. In these latter few years, I’ve ramped up my collection of pens, mostly mid to low-end caliber pens, my most expensive being a Cross Century II gun metal/gold. In this time I came across a couple handmade pens on Etsy that I liked because of the nice wood and acrylic barrels. I then discovered that these were kit pens, Vertex pen kits from Penn State to b

    Hallo From Austria

    Hey everybody, until last year I mainly watched Youtube-videos, sometimes red reviews online and bought way to many TWSBIs but now I finally signed up here! I have a question on where to post certain stuff on this forum: I recently created a website and I'd be really interested in hearing some feedback! I'm just not sure where to i'm supposed to post. (If this is important, it's basically a fountain pen search that doesn't sell anything but just links to stores. The URL is www.fpfinder.com) Thank you in advance! Cipher
  3. IMHO, this is an (i)deal fountain pen: vintage Waterman Ideal 52 with Waterman's Awesome Brown Thus far the nib/feed combination has superseded all other writing experiences from the collection of Aurora, Bock, Jowo, Sailor, Parker, Pilot, Sheaffer, Wahl Eversharp... to name a few... Is there a non-vintage modern equivalent?What is your ideal fountain pen writing experience?

    Feedback And Its Nature

    Hey all! My first post around here I recently received an unexpected windfall from work and decided to try pens from two brands I had not previously tried; one of which was a pen I had been particularly lusting after for quite some time. In this process, I also excluded a pen because its particular brand had a reputation for "scratchy" nibs... and I am now second guessing all this after what I received. So earlier this week I received in the mail a Sailor Pro Gear with rhodium accents and a lovely bicolour 21K nib (broad). I also received, which I was far more excited about, a Pelikan M80
  5. Big thanks to Atsu, also know on eBay as cool-japan. A wonderful seller; they got me three Sailor Kingdom Note inks to me in the US in about a week and at better pricing on eBay. Also thanks to saskia_madding for the links that led me to Atsu: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/261536-about-my-reviews/ eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/japaneseproductsonlinestore/ The Gmail address is cooljapan21 If anyone is interested, I purchased the following: Nipponia nippon Tanna japonensis Garrulus lidthi

    Custom 74 Nib Feedback

    Just bought a new Custom 74. The softer nib is taking some getting used to, it is not bad though. What I am wondering is: Does yours have any feedback on the nib? I have read several reviews that talk about the nib being smooth, but mine seems a little scratchy. Not digging into the paper scratchy just not as buttery smooth as I thought with this pen. Feels kinda like I am writing with a pencil at times. Thoughts?

    Creating Feedback In A Nib

    Hi everyone, This is my first proper post, so please go easy on me Personally, I love that feel of feedback in a nib. However, the nibs I've smoothed always end up being too smooth for my taste. Sometimes even buttery smooth. I can't seem to find the balance between scratchy and super-smooth. I recently bought a Kaweco AL Sport with a Fine nib and this had precisely the level of feedback I like. My goal is to create a similar feel of feedback in my other nibs, but am not sure how to do this. Can anyone advise on how to create feedback, without making it scratchy please? Warm regards,
  8. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/_FUJ6448.jpg Would any of you calligraphic masters be willing to provide a gentle critique of the above sample and give me a clue as to what to work on to improve? I recently purchased my first dip pen and have been attempting this type of writing for just a short while. Before I go forward, I'd like to make sure I don't cement bad habits with my practice. The problems I see with my own writing include inconsistent/improper spacing between letters and words and a shaky/indecisive hand. There are also some letters that I'm really no
  9. Which pen give you the best writing feedback? Famous examples, Aurora I am talking about pleasant feedback Looking forward to all your replies
  10. Hey FPN'ers, I just made a post over on the G+ fountain page about making a case for carrying around four ink bottles to gage response, and one of the users made a really interesting suggestion. He said he wouldn't want anything the size of a actual glass bottle, but would want something more like the Goulet ink sample vials. I think his suggestion is awesome and would work with the design I already make for my pen cases. What I would like to know is how many ink vials would people want to be able to carry around with them? Also, if you would want a different type of marterial from the f
