I am a public school educator in NC. I got into fountain pens by purchasing a pen to commemorate major events in my life. Looking forward to learning a lot from the network!

Welcome !

 

Oooooo ! This is fascinating. Please name your pens and tell which "events" are represented by each.

I think it would be a great window into your psyche and its workings. :eureka:

Ah, an educator, that means we'll expect you to educated your pupils in the joy of fountainpen writing.

Welcome to FPN. I too recently joined and teach in VA. I bought a few Pilot Varsity pens to hold me over until I could ship one to me. When I write with them, my students think they are really cool and want them.

Thanks for all the kind words. My first pen, a Waterman came when I completed a training program to become an assistant principal. My next was a Schaeffer when I became a principal. Over the years, several Vanishing Points as EDC pens, a couple of Visconti's, a couple of Lamy Dialogue 3s, Namiki Fermo, Mont Blanc Boheme and several others. As you can see, I am a fan of the retractable nib. I am currently considering either a STIPULA LA91 or a Stipula DaVinci. I would appreciate any feedback about the pros and cons of either pen.

IWC ? You like watches too ?

No. Those are my initials. One expensive hobby at a time!

Good to know there is a kindred soul nearby.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
