  1. Hi all, today I was in my local branch of the UK chain of discount stores ‘Home Bargains’. I chanced to walk past their stationery section, where my eye lit upon a sales pack that contained a cartridge-fill fountain pen and two cartridges, for the price of 59p For those of you who do not live in the UK, that bricks-and-mortar store price of £0.59 includes my country's sales tax of 20%. At today's exchange rate, £0.59 = 0.69€ = $0.77. As a ‘purchasing power’ comparison, at the time of typing this the price of a 2-pint bottle of whole milk in my local supermarket is 80p. The ‘huge’ investm
  2. So I want to upgrade from the use of ballpoint pens at school to a fountain pen. I do have a pen that I enjoy to use at home to study with, but its made out of acrylic, which makes be very scared that it will break in my bag. I know for a fact that there will be times when the pen will be beat around my bag, so I want to stick with pens that are more heavy duty, and made out of metal so that it will be less likely to have any part of the pen break or crack. I do have a metropolitain, but I find the grip section way to uncomfortably small to use, so the grip section would preferably be ~10mm. I
  3. Hello, Those of you who enjoy writing in non standard ink colors, which ones do you use? I'm looking for some nice recommendations for some demonstrators that I have coming in the mail.
  4. Hey there! School is approaching quickly, and with it the need for new supplies! I (think/hope I) have my pens covered, with my soon to arrive Pilot VP (practicality at its finest), but I'm still in dire need of some paper to write on. Although the simplest option is to just have a separate notebook for each subject, I'm worried about the practicality of toting around 6 near-identical notebooks, and attempting to differentiate between them. For this reason, I'm craving something that can hold all of my notebooks, or fountain-pen friendly paper, in one convenient school-friendly booklet-esque

    Do I Need Iron Gall

    I will be taking lots of notes in the upcoming 3 years and I need them to be perfectly readable for at least 2 years from the date they are written. The notes will be frequently opened (exposure to sunlight) and I am worried that the ink may fade. My arsenal of inks includes different colours of Diamine and Lamy inks. Do I need Iron Gall ink(have been looking at ESS) to retain readability of my notes, as Noodler's are hard to come by here?

    Blue Ink For School

    Two weeks ago I bought my first fountain pen and now I am looking for a good ink to use it with at school during the upcoming year. My requirements for the ink are: -easily readable(for long essays, ext.) -reasonable drying time (I am a lefty) -preferably Diamine Ink, but other brands available in the UK are also fine. -little to no bleed through with notebook paper (not using the cheapest and thinnest paper, but certainly not Rhodia like)
  7. Hi, I am currently a student in college. I would like to share this notebook that I recently bought. This is the MUJI Notebook B5 with 6mm ruling. http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0765.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/Front.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/Back.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0766.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0767.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0769.jpg Pros: Relatively cheap, about $11-$12 for five notebooks right now.

  8. Hi everyone, after almost 2 years I'm going back to school, and for the first I have to properly ask myself: which paper would be best to use for daily use. I prefer to use wirebound notebooks, so I can organise the individual sheets into the right folders after class. Naturally I have to consider which pens and inks to use, too, but we all know how the paper affects things such as dry time, etc., too. So ideally I'd like to get a ring wired notebook, that isn't too smooth as ink tends to take its time to dry (which is what I experienced with Rhodia a lot). On the other hand I'd like to

    Ink Suggestions

    I am a new user to fountain pens but I do have some knowledge about them. I ordered a Pilot Metropolitan in a fine nib but I am having trouble choosing ink. I am a college student who will be using cheap notebook paper, I know expensive paper is better but I cannot afford purchasing it. I am looking for a black ink and maybe a blue black or blue ink. Currently I am looking at the Pelikan brilliant black ink and the noodlers black or noodlers 54th Massachusetts. I am clueless because I have yet to test any of the inks but I was hoping for some guidance. If anyone can tell me what their favorite

  11. Hey Guys, I am looking for a nice practical pen for everyday use, and prolonged writing sessions in an academic environment, after examining all my options Im torn between the CP1 and the TWSBI 580. I am considering a Fine nib by the way, which one should I opt for? Many Thanks.
  12. Hey Guys, I am currently a Junior at high school and a big fan of fountain pens, as a student I only use fountain pens with the exception of a Rotring 500 for math. My experience with some fountain pens has been great, others not so much. I started out with a Lamy Safari in Medium, accidentally dropped it after a couple of months and broke the nib. I then got a Lamy AL Star (M), which had an incredibly smooth nib, at the same time I got a new Safari (M) to put another ink in, and it had a very bad nib, straight out of the box the tines were very uneven, and the bead at the end was beyond fixi
  13. Hello! I recently became interested in fountain pens and I'm considering purchasing one! I would most likely buy the Lamy Safari based on the high recommendation of them to new users, I also really like the design of them as well. However, I am unsure on which nib size to get with the Safari. I am a left-handed (I read that the left-handed Lamy nib doesn't really make a difference, but I might as well mention it) high school student. This means I would most likely be using cheap paper, like the Norcom 1 Subject Notebook (College Ruled), and blank copy paper as well. I am not sure whether
  14. Hello! I looked through a lot of posts about ink recommendation on fountainpennetwork.com but most of the threads were posted and answered several years ago (early 2000s) so I wanted to see some new updated responses about few inks that I assume would be good with my Lamy Safari fountain pen. (I read all the ink reviews on the giant Index - Ink Review collection post and also watched tons of youtube videos, visited various fountain pen websites, etc.) Information about my pen: Lamy Safari (2015) with Fine nibList of characteristics I would like in the ink: Blue-black ink, more of a "black

  16. Hello! I am a student in year 10. My senior years are coming up, and I have had a huge problem with my handwriting speed. So basically, I was researching around for handwriting speed tips or how to write faster or ANYTHING that could help me improve at all and I found that people like Nonsensical can write 'the quick brown fox jumped swiftly over the lazy dog' in 10 - 12 seconds, with very neat and legible writing . All I can write at the moment is at max 24 - 27 words per minute under exam conditions. But to be honest, its not good enough at all. My handwriting is legible, and I've bee
  17. Hello all, Since october last year I am hooked in Fps, and as an high school student I want now to change my Lamy Safari that I am using since last october. I have tried also a Parker 45, Sailor highace Neo, Fpr triveni Jr (indian pen). I am searching for a pen with : - metal construction by preference (a little tired by it on the safari), more consistent design. - a snap-cap (much more handy to take notes) - not with "friction" as on the P45, which clips immediately. - Not Japanese, because I always found myself confused to find an equivalent to the Lamy F, for me with my us
  18. Hi all, I don't post much here anymore, but I wanted to share a cool thing. I am a high school teacher. I was showing my Fisher Space Pen to one of my students and we were talking about how it can write upside down, in outer space, underwater, etc and he commented that his pen couldn't do that. I asked him what sort of pen he had and he pulled out a Pilot fountain pen! I was pretty geeked out to see it and mentioned that I sort of was into pens as well. Later he asked me some questions about ink. He wanted to get another color besides black, so I told him that I could fix him up! Like

    Help Me!

    I need help on choosing the best notebook for my notes in class. I'm a high school student looking for the best notebook for everyday writing. I will be willing to spend the most $15-20 on a notebook that's fountain friendly, but here's the catch, I must use a composition notebook because the teacher refuses spiral books. I need a composition notebook that is regular size but is fountain pen friendly. Also I'm guessing my only places are staples or office max. I'm using Mont Blanc Irish green in (pretty wet) so I want something that won't bleed through easily. I would prefer wide ruled becau
  21. Hello! I haven't been around FPN lately, but I do pop in and lurk on occasion. I'm hoping that you all can give me a hand here (pun intended!). I'm currently working on some fan fiction for _Alias Smith and Jones_, and I got curious as to what the fellows' handwriting might have looked like. Heyes and Curry were born roughly 1850 - 1852, so I'm assuming that they would have learned manuscript penmanship in school about 1860. Since this would have been in the Midwest/frontier, say Kansas, my thought is that the school script they were taught would have been from a somewhat earlier time
  22. 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
  23. Anyone out there own the Kokuyo Systemic Refillable Notebook Cover in the semi B5 size? What notebooks can you put in it?
  24. So I am getting a new pen at the end of the coming semester and was wondering if anyone could help point my indecision in the right direction. I'm torn completely between the rose gold Diamond 580 and the clear Vac 700. I'll be using it primarily in a school environment and think that the #6 nib of the 700 would make replacement not such a big deal in the case of damage, and it's higher ink capacity would be useful for copious amounts of note taking. However, the rose gold 580 is very very attractive, but lacks that fantastic sloshing ink trait of the 700. It has a smaller #5 nib and smaller
