Hello From Massachusetts!

Hello.

My name is Tom and I've been reading up and collecting fountain pens for almost a year. Yes, the bug hit me and has me curious to learn more about the industry. I love how passionate and kind everyone is in the community. I'm opening an online store soon for pens and some stationery products which is why I re-created my account. Happy to be back!

Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell.

 

JAR do you remember me? I think my name was dontommasino before and you gave me ideas on pens to purchase a while back.

Glad to be back!

Welcome !

 

Although it's a lot of reading, I think you might glean good market information here. What characteristics fountain pen people desire in writing paper ? What do "cheapskate" fountain pen people expect in writing paper ?

 

Good luck.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Tom,

 

Welcome back to the FPN.

 

I, of course, adore pens, paper & ink. It " saddens " me to know that you plan to open an online shop for FPs & stationery supplies. I am as passionate about paper as I am pens. Therefore, I'll be " forced " to check out your site! Good luck with your new venture.

 

Enjoy your time here.

If your out-go is more than your income,

 

Then your up-keep.

 

May be your Down-falll!!!

Greetings and welcome!

...The history, culture and sophistication; the rich, aesthetic beauty; the indulgent, ritualistic sensations of unscrewing the cap and filling from a bottle of ink; the ambient scratch of the ink-stained nib on fine paper; A noble instrument, descendant from a line of ever-refined tools, and the luster of writing,
with a charge from over several millennia of continuing the art of recording man's life.

I feel the same way about paper. I'm still building up inventory, but can't wait to open next month. Hope to see you there!

      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
