    New But Old User Saying Howdy.

    Hi all, I live in London and have recently re-discovered the inky world of fountain pens. I used them regularly at school when I was but a mere stripling, as all my inky pocketed shirts will testify! but that was a while ago. Anyway hey-ho here we are a whole heap of years later and I have just purchased a Sailor Professional gear in silver and a Kweco Dia 2 also with silver livery. (I'm not a gold type of guy) I also acquired some Sailor and Pilot Iroshizuku inks. As my pens haven't arrived yet and i'm bursting with apprehension I intend to cover my body from head to toe in ink I a
  2. The next meeting of the London (UK) Fountain Pen club is this coming Saturday (the 1st) at the Bierschenke near Liverpool St Station. Roughly 12:00-15:00 (downstairs).
  3. I'll be travelling to London and Edinburgh in about a month with my husband, and while I saw this thread on London pen shops (or the lack thereof), I was also wondering if there were any cute little pen/stationery shops to visit in Edinburgh (there's this thread, but it is a bit old, so I'm starting this one). Google says The Pen Shop in Edinburgh is closed, so... any suggestions? I'm not that well to do, so it doesn't have to be high end pens or stationery, but a neat souvenir and/or a nice deal would be great I'm also making a stop at the Isle of Skye, but that being a less urban place,
  4. Is anyone going to the London UK Pen Show on the 1st of October? Going to my first show in October, very excited.
  5. Hello, I'm afraid I'm coming at this from a rather newcomer's perspective, as I only have one fountain pen to my name, but I'm really in need of help and this seems like a lovely, friendly, knowledgeable community from which to seek it! I'm afraid it's a rather long story, but I don't want to do it the injustice of not starting at the beginning. I've always only liked writing with fountain pens, and used the same £10 Parker (Jotter) all the way through school. It seemed almost timely when it came to a sticky end just a few days after I finished my final exams. My Grandma took me to get a ve

    "the Magic Pen"

    Found this reference (see attached image) inn a book entitled James Joyce's Dubliners An Illustrated Edition. Have googled it but not much information found. Anyone familiar with this pen which must date back to 1900 - 1910 I think?

    Hi Everyone!

    Hi! I'm a university student, currently finishing off my Physics masters in London. I've used FPs since I was 7, but only recently have I dived down the rabbit hole of the hobby! I've posted a few times on the /r/fountainpens subreddit as 'staberinde', but I thought I'd come join the community here! For the 10 years of primary and secondary school, I used a trusty Lamy Safari (which is still my lucky charm in exams!). For a short time I had a cheap plastic Parker (I can't remember what it was called, but it wasn't a Vector), but that got destroyed by a tank... My grandfather bought me a
  8. Hype! I am very hyped for this show, for this will be my first pen show. I've read in the 2015 that YOL and Conid will be there, along with others like Henry Simpole and Penamie. From the pictures it seems like the age group is slightly older though... Hope to make some friends Who are going to do nib works there? I am thinking about getting my L2K grinded to a Japanese F... So who's planning to go? And old-timers, could you tell me how it works and what to expect?

    Visconti London Fog!

    Visconti is delighted to announce its latest addition to the Homo Sapiens demonstrator collection - the London Fog. The barrel of the pen features ribbons of finely shaved blue celluloid suspended in clear acrylic resin while the cap and plunger feature the same shaved celluloid suspended in a marbleized silver resin. All trims are crafted in 925 sterling silver. The London Fog is truly a spectacular pen. The London Fog demonstrator is available in fountain pen or rollerball and limited to 888 pieces. The fountain pen features the patented Visconti Double Reservoir Power Filler, a unique filli
  10. Hey Guys! I enjoy the enervation of talking about fountain pens and looking at pens in real life. Just wanted to know of any good fountain pen shops in London. I really like The Pen Shop but would like to branch out and try new inks and pens. Thanks you very much!

    Nibmeister In London?

    I'm looking for a nib meister in London who can have a look at my Lamy and Parker Sonnet nibs. I'm only going to be there for a couple of days so is there anybody who might be able to do a walk-in? I don't mind leaving the nibs with him but at least visiting him in person will save some time.

    Hello From London, Uk.

    Hello everyone, I think it's about time that I joined a fountain pen forum as I seem to be amassing a collection Enjoy sending snail mail - gives me an excuse to use different pens and inks! I have a couple of Visconti pens which so far seem to be my favourite - love the "dreamtouch" nibs. Hope to chat about pens and increase my knowledge....as well as see lots of pen pics!! Dean
  16. Scans are here: http://tinyurl.com/polwxr3 download a .zip file with all the scans in here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/qkpqzg Please note that plate 25 was missing from the copy I scanned, all of the rest are there. This book was published in 1795. William Milns did the calligraphy and Harry Ashby engraved it. This book was popular enough that it continued to be published until the 1850s in England. William Milns emigrated from England to America at some point after publishing this book, and his grave may be found today in Boston, in the old burying ground, on Boston common near B
