Fpn Highest Ranked (Fountain) Pen Site Worldwide!


Recommended Posts

Dearest Members and Visitors to our little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,


We are quite excited, because recently, on March 25 to be exact, FPN became the highest ranked (fountain) pen interest site worldwide, beating even the biggest brand name forums to the number one spot!

Currently we are ranked around 32,000 worldwide, and around 13,000 in the USA, this of a total of over 30 million sites all over the world.

Obviously ranking varies a little, on a day by day and seasonal basis, but so far the trend is holding :).


Considering we really are in a relatively narrow niche market, and considering where we came from almost 11 years ago now, I think this is truly amazing, even more so considering we broke through to the top 100,000 literally only 2 years ago, almost to the day!


Not bad going for an entirely volunteer run site :D, and it would not have been possible without you, our active members!


Therefore, congratulations to all, and thank you for your continued support!


Warmest regards, Wim

on behalf of the entire moderator and admin team

Well it is nice to belong to a successful forum. Congratulations to all who make it number one.

A whole lot of credit goes to the behind-the-scenes people. Thanks to them all for making this a site we want to come back to again and again.

Indeed! The tireless work that moderators and admins do is a pretty amazing labor of love. We have a little joke in our industry that it would be really difficult to get fired from a volunteer position, but here at FPN there is a tremendous commitment and standard held in light of a wide spectrum of culture and experience.


Well done!

Best regards,

I think it's because of the general topics. And you have people from other forums dumping people here. Like in WuS they dump the newer Fp people here to learn and you get a MB you can go back there.

I'd like to think that I had no small part in the success of this forum. No large part, either. Don't spill your wine.

I was just going to say congratulations, but on second thought, I think Sasha said it better :)

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
