  1. Just got hold of several old bottles of Parker Super Quink Blue ink that came in cheap looking, black plastic bottles that look nothing like Parker Quink ink -or any other ink for that matter! They were manufactured in Parker's plant in Mexico sometime in the 1980's and they differ from their American counterparts in that there's no mention of Solv-X in them -which from what I've read, these inks had- and it only states the ink as permanent. Upon opening the first bottle I found that evaporation took the better half off it and that it has a chemical aroma that is not present on any other i
  2. Hello, I just bought some pens, paper and inks from Gouletpens and paid a very expensive shipping to Mexico, but now I am afraid that my package may be retained at customs for containing inks and sent back. So, I wanted to know if anybody has experience buying inks from US to Mexico and if you have encountered problems with customs in doing so. Thanks a lot in advance for your help. I hope my package reaches me without problems. It would be very sad and disappointing to not get my products after paying those shipping prices. :/
  3. I see there is a big community in the United States and Overseas and I was wondering if there is anything happening in Mexico City. I do hope so!
  4. During an internet outage this evening, I went out to one of my local Walmarts and came away with triplets. A set of Norcom composition books, one each from the US, Mexico, and Vietnam... http://i.imgur.com/qFkKf7S.jpg Mexico top left, Vietnam top right. I put them through their paces with different pens, inks, and nibs. The results speak for themselves, I think... http://i.imgur.com/bO1mX62.jpg http://i.imgur.com/oGnWhHj.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/tIXdXWt.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/DWmcLXp.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/5uaWfXm.jpg http://i.imgur.com/xUax6ZE.jpg The Vietnamese book far outperformed the Americ

    Hello From Mexico! C:

    Hi everyone!! Fountain pen newbie here!! I just discovered this new wonderful world and have started my collection with a Pilot Metropolitan in Retro Pop Purple, and a Lamy Safari in Charcoal, both pens have medium nibs. Hoping to add one more pen soon and start messing around with inks. I use my pens for both drawing and writing, though I do more drawing than writing. I'm still in the process of experimenting and getting to know my pens and the inks I managed to find in my area. Glad to be here with you all! Cheers! <3

    Is This A Parker 45?

    I was recently offered this pen for sale. It appears to be a Parker 45 in rather good condition with a metal squeeze converter fitted in. But the thing that really caught my eye is that the pen was made in Mexico. I know Parker and other pen companies had manufacturing plants here, but I've never seen a fountain pen made here. My guess is that this pen was manufactured between the 70's and early 80's. Do you think it's worth a second look?

    Greetings From México!

    Hi, everyone from FPN! (and excuse my poor english, please.) I've been a fountain pen user for almost a year now (been a Pilot Metropolitan my first pen, YES!) , and since then I was already using FPN to look for some answers to my fountain pen related questions, but I wasn't sure to join the comunity officially. It's been a year now and my enthusiasm for fountain pens doesn't seem to get any lower, just all the other way around, and I have the feeling that this site is going to be very usefull to me and my upgrowing enthusiasm; also I notice that FPN is full with kind and interesting peopl

  10. I got and Esterbrook FP (I guess it is a J) in a flee market in Mexico City for about 15 dollars more than ten years ago. I have not given it any serious use because after a while it started to drip, and besides it has a somewhat scratchy feeling. Lately, after my addiction for pens increased (look at this if you want to see why: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/267147-why-i-am-here-or-just-another-tragic-story/), I decided to give it another try. The other day I saw that it had the tines misaligned, so I aligned them. Now it writes really smooth, but it still drips, an
  11. There was in another post in this same Esterbrook forum an unexpected interest in Esterbrook pens made in Mexico ("HECHO EN MEXICO"), and I promised to look for some of them… Now, until now I could find two in a repair shop in downtown Mexico City, and I am advertising them in the Clasifieds section under the title "Two Esterbrook Lj “Hecho En Mexico” - Without A Nib" I attach here the photos, so you can see right away if the thing is interesting for you.

    Hello, I am very happy to join this network, sometimes my English could fail a little bit, because is not my native language, but I always try to do my best.

    Greetings From México

    First, hello to you all. My name is Alberto Puebla and I am 22 years old. I am writing my thesis to graduate in literature in Spanish. I became interested in the world of fountain pens when I entered university. My first fountain pen was a Inoxcrom and, since then, I've acquired some new models I will later introduce to you. I hope to be able to collaborate with good material in this forum. Thanks for your attention. Regards, Alberto Puebla.
