I have always loved fountain pens and generally use a Pilot or Lami for writing. I was an exchange student my junior year of college in Germany and was amazed that the young students learned cursive from the beginning (and not printing first) and used "junior" models of fountain pens. As a matter of fact, you will still see " beginner" fountain pens among office supplies in a grocery store! I am into calligraphy in a major way and use a Pilot Parallel pen for my practice and have all four sizes. I do not like some of the ink in the Pilot cartridges, especially the black. It feathers and soaks through many types of paper, and I wonder why they don't improve it. There are a lot of complaints out there! I load my Pilot handle with ink or refill cartridges with a syringe. I just tried Noodler's bulletproof black in my Pilot pen and it is wonderful. I also have two Osmiroid pens that I have cleaned up and am using again. Hope to hear from other calligraphy fans.

Welcome !

 

Some inks have very desirable properties, but other properties are lost in trade. My faster drying inks tend to bleed through "soft" papers. Fountain pen friendly papers are less common, in our time. "Raggy" , "recycled-material" papers that are acceptable in photo copiers, often are not considerate of fountain pen people. (Sigh !) Try your Pilot inks on paper with a "harder" finish.

 

Good news ! FPN is a vast well of experience. We collectively know which inks function well on various papers.

 

Write with joy.
