Enjoy the new pen! Since you're in Mass, a few things ~ there's an active Boston Pen Club; in Boston, Bromfield's is a great pen store; finally, check out the many Noodler's inks. Since they are from Mass as well, they have many themed inks from the state :)

Hello from Western Mass! I used to think I liked fine nibs but secretly liked medium nibs. They lay down the ink really nicely, and with more ink coming through the nib, the color of the ink is more evident. At least it is to me, as I'm rather nearsighted. (My 2.5 year old daughter is the one wearing the reading glasses in my photo) The pens you've named are a good start, as they sound really reliable. I hear lots of good things about the Lamy Safari, and I might have to get myself one of those new orange ones if I keep hearing such good things about them.

 

Hope you're enjoying yourself here! Welcome! :W2FPN:

Kansaskyle recently joined up and had a similar question. He ended up making a chart:

Hope this helps,

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

Thank you thats all so interesting! Especially because I Love Noodlers ink! I have the basic Blue and Black from him and im amazed. I want to get Liberty's Elysium next because im an avid user of blue inks and blue is my favorite color. I adore royal blue and sapphire hues. I'd love to go to Boston and check that out but its a bit far seeing as how i dont have my license nor a car atm. Maybe someday tho!

Happy Writing from Mass!

Thank you and i agree because i now have a fine nibbed lamy safari and a Medium Japanese nibbed Jinhao x750. Believe it or not I like the Jinhao more because the nib is smoother and lays down more ink in a line that is also thicker (i too wear glasses! Lol) and btw your daughter is adorable ☺️

Hi,

Welcome to the forum. Fountain pen is a great hobby although it can become expensive overtime. The choice to start with Safari is good.

Wish you all the best
