  1. Background: Right handed. Been using fountain pens on and off for a couple of years. Only recently gotten more serious about pens, cursive writing, nib types etc. My goal is to improve my cursive handwriting, and eventually to move on to calligraphy and advanced scripts. So I recently got some flexible nibs, played around with line variation, and came upon an article that says the "sweet spot" is when the pen is under the lining of writing, and the nib is perpendicular to it. This makes a bit of sense to me, so I tried it out (quite weird to say the least!). My original way of writing is a kind of side writing. One thing I did notice upon switching to underwriting at 90 degrees is that pens write wetter and line variation much more achievable (esp for nibs previously thought to be nails).' So I just want to throw this out to the community of much more experienced writers. Which is the more "correct" way to position the nib with regard to the direction of writing? Right now I find the need to rotate my page awkward and underwriting somewhat fatiguing to the wrist. Any tips of advice? The bottom line is that I want to get started with the correct writing posture, that will serve me well if I move onto dip pens and calligraphy. My original way of holding pen: New, correct?? way of holding pen:
  2. Lamy X LINE Brown Fountain Pen (Safari) Lamy teamed up with LINE of South Korea to release a range of limited edition pens (fountain pen and rollerball set) commemorating some of the characters from LINE. LINE is a messaging App craze currently sweeping Asia. They are a range of animated "stickers" you can use as emoji in your messaging. The characters also appear in various themed cartoons, and they have even recently released a full length feature film. You can find some of the cartoons on You Tube. The one I came across is LINE TOWN, in which the main characters of Brown (Bear), Cony (Rabbit), Sally (Duck), James (Man), Moon (Moon-headed Man) and the Boss appear. It is actually a very funny portrait of office life… in any country! For this Lamy tie- up, the Fountain Pen and rollerball sets focussed on the three characters of Brown, Sally and Cony. These pens were a limited run for Lamy and are no longer being produced). I bought the Brown fountain pen and roller ball, pictured below. RARE The “Brown” Fountain pen has proved to be the most sought after of the three characters for Lamay Safari collectors. Both because no Lamy Safari has ever been produced in this particular shade of brown, AND the cap and barrel material has a matt texture to it. Again NEVER seen before. I have read that some of these collectors are very keen to get the “Brown” Fountain pen ONLY for the unique colour and texture…and not for the Bear’s faces at all. I wonder…. The Fountain pen and rollerball sets come packaged in a nice bright yellow Lamy box, with 2 Brown faces in each. The fountain pen also comes with a Lamy converter and a Lamy cartridge. You are meant to accessories the clip with the bears face…?! Although these limited edition pens were not cheap, and I am not a Lamy Safari collector ( I prefer Omas and Nakaya!), I am still weighing up whether or not to add the Sally set to my collection…at least the fountain pen version. To continue the theme I splurged on a whole load of LINE accessories- imported from K-poptown of South Korea. Import taxes and all!

    Lining Blank Pages

    I recently bought a journal to write in that has unlined pages and wish to add lines myself. Was just wondering if anyone has any tips for doing this. I would prefer fairly thin lines. Also, the pages are too thick to trace anything through.
