    Ink Color Etiquette

    I was wondering if anyone knew what the correct color ink is to write a thank you to a Japanese family. The note will accompany a small gift. In the States, I'd stick with black, but I'm not sure about Japan. Thank you!

    How Do You Take Your Notes?

    Hi everyone, Here's a question for all those of you who use your fountain pens for note-talking (especially for classes). How do you organize your notes? What colors do you use? How do you control yourself from going crazy with the colors?! I used to use black, red, blue, orange, only for taking notes until last semester. I used these colors to organize headings, important theorems, remarks and general text. However, I have recently, uhm, spent a bunch of money on new pens and lots of inks. So now I am thrown off my game. This is going to sound silly, but I wanted to make the use of color
  3. I'm a high school student who has just recently gotten in to fountain pens. I first got a Safari F, which was nice, but I then upgraded to a TWSBI 580 in F, which is so much better. I really prefer the thinner line that I get from the TWSBI. I've been using Kon-peki after getting a bottle of it, it's absolutely wonderful. Anyway, on to my question. I've heard really good things about the 2000 and the Falcon, and I'm looking for a pen in that price range. From other questions like this the 2k seems to be more recommended, but when I checked on the Goulet's site, even the EF 2k nib is larger t
  4. I saw this the other day I thought I would share it with all my fountain pen friends... http://cfptommiller.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-power-of-handwritten-note.html Here are some tips to remember when sending a handwritten note: Use a plain, non-standard sized white envelope. Using a traditional envelope will make your note look too much like a bill or other junk correspondence. Try to find cards and envelopes that are sized like birthday cards or greeting cards that you would find in a card store.Handwrite the addresses on the envelope. This goes without saying, but typing the address and
  5. I am considering getting into the fountain pen hobby, and I am wondering how long bottled ink lasts. Specifically, to be used for primarily school notes and homework, with a fine or extra fine lamy nib (if that makes a difference). How many milliliters of ink do you guys usually go though with schoolwork? I realize that there are a lot of variables at play here, but a rough estimate would be very helpful to me. Thanks

    A5 Or Semi-B5 For College?

    Would A5 or semi-B5 paper be better for note taking? I checked out the Kokuyo Systemic refillable notebook cover and they seem really great. But they only come in 2 sizes. I feel like it would be good to get the A5 size because there are more notebooks in that size available, whereas the semi-B5 notebooks are a bit more difficult to find. But, I feel like I would go through A5 notebooks really fast. I want the Systemic because I would be able to fit 3 notebooks in it and I wouldn't have to really worry about anything getting torn up too bad, but if there is a similar product, please share!

    What About The Sheaffer Snorkel?

    Still on my quest for finding the awesome workhorse...a pretty horse who can do tricks too hehe. I always look for a pen that you can get fine lines when needed (usually by writing with it 'upside down'), as this comes in handy for writing small letters, writing on cheap paper, or just sketching. The Snorkel has captivated my eye because it has this beautiful upturned conical nib, and has a interesting filling system. However, when it comes to recommended pens for workhorse candidates, I see many responses being the Lamy 2000, Namiki Falcon, Lamy Safari, etc. I've had these before, and I have
  8. In the process of browsing the various threads of FPN, I have noticed that there are quite a few active users who are teachers. What are your favorite teaching pens, and what purpose do they each serve? In my middle school math classes I regularly use: - Pilot Frixion 0.5 - Blue Black is my favorite, but I like having a variety of colors to use under the document camera. Explaining a concept can be so much clearer when I have different colors for different parts and have the ability to erase my mistakes cleanly. http://www.jetpens.com/Pilot-FriXion-Ball-Knock-Retractable-Gel-Ink-Pen-0.5-mm-
