Hello - New to the Area, looking for a local pen shop to tune my FP nibs - I write in a very small font size and use EF nibs, however the ink flow on almost all of them is too much, looking for a drier experience. Am left-handed too, which doesn't help much in keeping the smudging and smearing down.

 

Anybody have any recommendations?

Hi there fellow Reno-ite!

 

Unfortunately, there are no local pen shops in Reno. I send my pens to Michael Masayama for tuning. But, be warned, he has a very long, long, processing time. But he is totally worth it.

 

I understand the challenges of being a lefty. May I suggest using a more absorbent paper (i.e. not Tomoe River) and a faster drying ink. I have good luck with Waterman inks and most Pilot Iroshizuku inks. I prefer stub nibs, but I understand the need for finer points.

Hello, I just recently moved up to Reno for school and would love to join in on the meet ups! I met another fountain pen user in one of my class and I know he also knows another fountain pen person, so that makes three!

Would the Reno people like to meet sometime over winter break?

Hi Folks,

 

There is a pretty active group of FP users that have met up a couple of time informally. They have a meeting planned for 9/27 at 5pm at the Riverside hub!

 

 

Best,

Jake

Hi, I live and work in Reno and I do use and collect fountain pens. I floated a 'meetup' group a few days ago. If anyone is interested, do let me know and we can meet up.

I'd be interested in fountain pen meetups at some future date when it's safe to socialize again.  I figure that's about a year from now.  I don't object to wearing a mask, but I like my non-work time to be mask-free as much as possible.  That's not exactly doable except at home.
