  1. I’m here to discuss what I have found to be the most efficient ways of producing beautiful handwriting as a left-handed person. I have tried and am familiar with numerous writing positions known to lefties including underwriting, side writing and overwriting (hooking). What I present to you is not the sole way of going about lefty calligraphy, it is simply what has worked best for me and some of the most capable left-handed calligraphers. If you find another method that works well for you, if you’re getting positive results, great! Do that if it works. I hope this will be of help to some of my

    Parker 51 12K Gold Cap Restoration Help

    Hello Members, I'm currently restoring my grandfather's Parker 51 with a 12K gold cap. The process been surprisingly smooth so far, thanks to YouTube and good luck probably, except I noticed that the nib of the pen doesn't seem quite right. It's a 14k nib and the tip is bent towards the right a bit. I don't have much experience with these pens and I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about what options I have to remedy this problem. Would I have to purchase a new nib? If so, where can I find one? Could the nib be repaired? Any recommendations of who would be up to the task? I'd appreciate a
  3. *No affiliation* Recently my friends asked me to help them order some limited editions from Japan because most sellers don't ship abroad. I did a quick research and figured out some ways to get these limited editions shipped outside Japan. In my case, it is mostly Sailor fountain pens which they made with Nagasawa, Wancher, Bungu Box or Pen House. For example, my friend want to order to California a Japan LE Professional Gear which is 20000 JPY in retail price, you will have these options to choose: 1. Ask your acquaintance to help. Cost will be: 20000jpy + 1600jpy(Japanese tax) + 2000jpy

    Montblanc 244G Disassembly?

    Hi there, I have a 244G laying around on my desk and would like to disassemble it. I have thus used the search function but couldn't find a disassembly instruction. Does anyone of you know how to take the 244G apart? Is the feed screwed in or friction fit? Best greetings!
  5. Hi everyone, As I introduced myself in a "new to the forum section" I can continue here on what is concerning me the most at the moment. I have a Pelikan Celebry that I inherited from my father. It is a very good writer in every possible aspect, smooth and wet with its 14c golden nib. However every once in a while I try to disassemble it for cleaning with no success whatsoever. It doesn't just unscrew from the section part as other Pelikans do, nor does the nib pull out from the section so I simply let tap water to run through from time to time. Is anyone familiar with how to disassemble this
  6. Hello everyone! I am Jarwolf! I saw a fountain pen online browsing for something to purchase for a hobby. I saw an advertisement saying "Fountain Pen's 60% off" I thought to myself.."Hmm, what in the world could a fountain pen be?" *click link* I saw an odd looking tip. Okay...I think I will buy it and see what it does! Sadly to say, it did not come with any ink at all, just the pen! Here is a little story why I got this and why I am here today needing help! Okay, so I made up the name Jarwolf, because my first name is Jared, also..well...hehe, I LOVE WOLVES WITH A PASSION!!! awhoooo
  7. The subject is the question. How is Baoer pronounced? I can see pronouncing it several different ways, but it's not from an English language manufacturer, so it may have a pronunciation that's totally different from anything I could guess. Anybody know? It could be spelled Luxury Yacht but pronounced throat-warbler-mangrove. Reference link.

    How Do You Journal?

    I've never been great about journaling consistently. I have improved since getting into fountain pens but thought I could glean some insights from you all: HOW do you journal? Long stream of consciousness? Brief snippets/phrases rather than complete sentences? Summaries of what you did that day/hope to do that day? Highlights to look back on? Thinking yourself clear "aloud"? Other? Share your habits, please.
