  1. Hello everyone! Really excited to finally join after almost a year of badgering from a friend here! So, today is a special day because for the first time in my life I have restored a vintage fountain pen! I mean more than just cleaning, I replaced the sack, the lever, the rivet thingy (forgot the name) and REALLY cleaned the insides. I feel like I'm offical now! Anywaaaaaaaay So this all started about a year ago when I had a warehouse coupon that was about to expire. I walked around thinking what to buy and I came to the pen section. I saw some fountain pens and I thought it would be cool to have a nice looking pen for work to sign documents with. I bought a Parker IM and thought to myself .... I know NOTHING of fountain pens... so I contacted an old friend who I vaguely remember was into pens and ... well a week later she showed up with INK AND PENS EVERYWHERE. She showed me how to use, clean and work with pens and why fountain pens are so nice to write with, and I haven't looked back since. Things went from bad to worse and currently I own 13 pens, most of them modern ones but as of late my preference has changed to vintage pens, or at least fixing them. Due to my budget I can't afford to buy very expensive pens so I love vintage pens that are broken and sold cheaply, only to be fix and work superb! Because of that interest I am also a consultant for an antique store. They let me evaluate their findings before buying pens and I get first pick before the stuff lands in the store! Well that's about it... I started this trip almost a year ago and don't plan to stop!
  2. goodnight


    Hello, I'm from the states but lived in France for a while where I first used a FP. Fast-forward 25 years and I was writing on the whiteboard at work and realized how atrocious my handwriting has become! So in my normal fashion, I created a game for myself. I have to write a bit daily and actively try to improve my penmanship. The school part is on hold waiting for the new release of Spencerian Handwriting book which will be my exercises. The quizzes, if you will, are writing letters each week (can't remember the last time I sent a personal letter snail-mail). Since I know myself I already bought the prize (a new camera) which will force me to follow through! After reading a number of reviews I purchased a Pilot VP, some Tomoe River loose sheet to practice on, and three trial-sized Iroshizulu inks (which I can't remember the names of). I've been very impressed with the community here. The thorough reviews, random swaps, and overall helpful attitudes are what made me want to join. A few randoms (trying to be funny): - Greatest new FP user fear: that I won't finish any of the bottles of ink before they expire - Greatest new FP user hope: to one day write an ink review that is as good as Sandy1's
