Hi everyone-

I am back to collecting fountain pens and writing letters too. I collected about 25 years ago and am seriously interested again, I like a big pen with some weight to it and enjoy fine quality and I love all the new inks I now have as well.


I live in NYC with my spuse of 35 years and my awesome PUGS!


I would love to correspond with a pal and welcome you reaching out to me to exchange information. You can email me at



Thanks and looking forward,

You can find club posts here. Tim usually posts as a meeting approaches. They're held on the first Thursday of the month and everyone is welcoming and warm and friendly! Here's last month's posting for informational purposes. :)

Ronnie, welcome from a fellow New Yorker!

I'll admit to being the Tim who has been outed in Welch's and Christina's posts above -- yes, please do come to our March meeting, notice of which will probably be unearthed in a week or so. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have. We'd love to see you there!

      @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

      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.
