Hello From New Hampshire!

Greetings FPN members!

I'm relatively new to the fountain pen community but having just gotten started, I thought it would be great to join a place like here to learn more.

 

I'm from the wonderful state of NH and currently a sophomore attending college in central Ohio.

 

I just got introduced to fountain pens when a friend got me a Lamy Safari M nib and I've been hooked to learning to use fountain pens day to day. I don't have much of a collection of pens yet since I can't really afford much (yay college student life) and am still using cartridges for now but I hope I can expand to a converter and other pens sometime soon.

 

I look forward to learning from you all!

Hi and :W2FPN:

 

So what are your subjects in college? Anything concerning real writing?

Welcome, where in NH are you from? I was born and raised in Newmarket but live in Oklahoma now. Hope you enjoy the FPN.

I'm studying biology and public policy so I'm not really writing too much creatively but I'm definitely writing lots of notes so that what I've been using my FP for.

 

And I haven't actually lived in NH for too long but I live in Lebanon, right near Hanover.

Welcome !

 

Ahh yes, the impoverished student life...remember it well. But, still very good budget priced FP's around on sites. The LAMY safari is a good starter. I like the triangular grip too.

 

Happy fountain penning.

thanks & best wishes, Captain Nib

...keep nibbing on...

Don't look down on someone, unless helping them up :D

Welcome !

 

You have to bear down with a ballpoint pen, so the ball will track on paper. That mandates that you write with a

tighter grip. Liquid ink is attracted to the paper. The slightest contact will deploy ink onto the paper. A fountain

pen allows a fingers-extended, relaxed grip. I found the greater "note-taking" endurance to be a huge advantage.

Carry a spare ink cartridge in a mint candy tin.

 

The LAMY Safari is an excellent school pen. Don't lend it. Don't get it stolen. It should last forty years.

Get a bottle of ink ASAP. Ink is cheap. Cartridges are expensive, but have greater capacity than the converter,

and are refillable. A suitable syringe is available, if you want one.

 

Write with joy.
