Hello From Bangkok!

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

 

I'm from Bangkok, Thailand and have a passion for modern fountain pens. So far, I've got a modest collection of 2 Parker Premiers, a Sonnet, a Sheaffer 100 and a Lamy Safari. Since I've started this hobby, writing both at school and at home has been an immense pleasure, although I'm working on my handwriting, since it is clearly subpar to most of yours here!

 

Looking forward to getting acquainted with all of the great people here.

Welcome!

 

Perth, you'd know that Perth is the capital of Western Australia. So we have Perth from Bangkok...any Australian connection.

 

A nice little collection of FP's to start with. There's perhaps a few of us who still need to work on the old handwriting :)

 

Happy fountain penning.

thanks & best wishes, Captain Nib

...keep nibbing on...

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

Welcome aboard Perth. There is at least one more in Bangkok.

Please call me Nathan. It is a pleasure to meet you.

Welcome, Perth !

 

The practice of writing will improve your handwriting. I agree that writing with a fountain pen is more pleasurable.

The flow of liquid ink allows a smooth and relaxed writing experience. Reducing writing fatigue in the classroom

will be a distinct advantage.

 

Do you have a favorite ink color ?

 

Best of luck.

Thank you! I'm mostly new to inks, but I've found that the Caran d'Ache Amazon from the Colours of the Earth line looks quite striking on paper.

Funnily enough, that's a statement I've been acquainted to. My mother visited Australia a few months before my birth, so she decided to give me the name. I've never been there, but it would be one very awkward trip!

Hi Perth and welcome to FPN.

 

Nice starting collection. I would say it needs a Waterman now as your next pen...

I actually received a gold Waterman c/f from my grandmother, but it seems to have mysteriously disappeared. Which is a shame.

That certainly is a shame. They seem nice pens. Only problem these days is that the cartridges are no longer available and converters hard to find.

I actually had a converter for it, which makes it a much harder loss.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
