  1. My new boss always carries his Montblanc BP with him and I immediately was struck by the beauty in its design. After some research I found a good rate on a Pilot Sonnet RB and after using it for a couple days decided it wasn't for me, and thus began my adventure into the world of fountain pens. Fast forward a few weeks of obsessively reading through the FPN forums and watching Brian Goulet's videos (no relation, just a happy customer)—last night I received 16 ink samples, a Lamy Safari Petrol XF and a Pilot Metropolitan F. I already had a Muji FP and a glass dip pen lying around so that is w
  2. Hello everyone, I hope you are having a pleasant day, this is my first post so it's possible that what I'll ask may seem puerile and possibly amounting to faux pas, please pardon my ignorance if any of that happens. Who I am ? I am student from India, who has a very important exam coming up in 6 months. I own 2 lamy safari's and 2 pilot metropolitan's. Why am I here ? Where I live and where I grew up we barely have anyone who uses fountain pens. I started with them not as a show of elegance but because I had a tendency to right softly and ball point pens require certain pressure which made

    Hello From Alaska...help Plz

    Hello all. Even thought I really only use rotring mechanical pencils I keep finding my way to this site so, I decided create an account here. I recently decided to try my hand at a fountain pen. I wanted a rotring 600 fountain pen (I want rotring everything really, I might have a problem) but I didn't want to drop hundreds on something I might not like. So, I got some random cheap rotring Newton off eBay (not the nice 600 style fountain pen minus the knurling Newton but the newer uglier Newton). Unfortunately, the seller failed to mention the fact that the nib was damaged and the pen did not
  4. Long time reader, first time poster I'm seeking help with selecting a new journal. In spite of trying a number of different papers (Tomoe River, HP Premium Choice Laser, Rhodia, Fabriano, Muji), I still find myself using Moleskine Volant journals. The quality is all over the place, but when it's good I like the feedback and absorbency of the paper. I find that with papers like the Rhodia and HP the pen sort of glides over the surface without much feel or feedback. I'm not looking for a rough paper, but I don't like it when the paper is super smooth or feels coated. I'd stick with Moleskin

    Greetings From Paris

    Hi everyone, My name is Gerardo. My family works in the little but really fascinating world of "fountain pens" since 2006. I joined my Family business since a couple of years. I'm now trying to modernize the way my family company operates in the field of fine writing instrumens. So, In addition to the "usual" Ebay store (erfobay), I have now created an Instagram profile and I'm now going into this platform. I hope to participate, actively and as much as possible through my experience, in the life of this important Network.Very best,Gerardo
  6. Hello, all. I've been lurking around for little while and decided to post. I have a few inexpensive pens; my current favorite is a Delta Serena that my lovely wife got me earlier this year (we call it a combination Valentine's & Father's day gift!) cw3
  7. Hey everybody! Here we are, my first post after lurking for a while on this great forum. I'll just start by listing the pens that I currently own and quick thoughts on them to give an idea of where I'm coming from: Lamy Safari (F) - This pen is nice and I use it as one of my main pens for everyday writing and work (college student). This is also the first pen I bought myself. Sheaffer Prelude (M) - This is the pen that got me pulled into this great hobby. I actually found it (sorry to whomever was the unlucky loser of the pen!). I like to use this for general writing, but also for s
