So far i have a parker urban, parker vector, platinum preppy, another one but broken, an old pen i have no idea what it is(https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/323826-nib-upside-down/?view=getnewpost), and a load of disposable pilot v pens. Does anyone know the best places in Bristol for fountain pens etc?

Welcome to our little corner of the universe from a pen user in San Diego. I'm glad you are here!

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!

Hi and welcome.

 

I am not too far away from you :)

 

I am not sure about pens in Bristol, but there are a couple of pen shops in Cardiff. There is also Pure Pens, but I am not sure if they are online only.

 

There is a pen show just outside Bristol, which is your best bet, but it's in Jan/Feb IIRC. There is a pen show in June in Lichfield which is probably the next closest after London in October. Madrid is an easy flight away too :D

 

Good hunting!

Greetings. I was in Bristol two weeks ago visiting the SS Great Britain. Impressive ship given its age.

 

Good sources of pens in Bristol would be cultpens or maybe eBay. Good cheap Chinese pens on eBay.

Welcome !

 

If you have the converter for your Parker pens, filling from a bottle should be simple. If not, please know that the plastic ink cartridges can be refilled with bottle ink, using a medical syringe. Simply remove, inject, and re-install. When the cartridge begins to be removed very easily, this means the plastic has "stretched" , and the seal is no longer reliable. Handled carefully, Parker cartridges can be re-used a dozen times. Confidence is high, as I followed this procedure through four years (confession -- 4½ years) of college.

 

Glad to have you with us.

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
