Hello fountain pen fans,

 

I just recently joined the fountain pen community after purchasing a very basic Franklin Covey Freemont and a Pilot Metropolitan a couple of days ago. However, I have been a long time stationary addict for many years (I started with mechanical pencils). This network's pen guides and reviews have been phenomenal and undoubtedly launched my FP interest. I was hesitant at first to start using a fountain pen because I thought it was going to be messy and complicated. However, once i picked up a baseline fountain pen I immediately fell in love; the feel when writing with a fountain pen is an experience in itself. I can't wait to expand my collection. Currently, I have many different coloured inks being shipped to me and soon I will buy the Lamy Safari. Through this community I hope to expand my knowledge of fountain pens,expand my collection and become a contributing member to help others.

 

Thanks :D

Drew

Welcome aboard, from Charleston, SC. As a newbie, you might look at the Reference Pages on a website called Richard's Pens: it has a wealth of info about the basics of fountain pens, their use and care, and it will help you avoid making some mistakes. A couple of other websites with useful information for newbies include PenChalet, Jetpens and the Goulet Pen Company. Goulet has made quite a few videos available on their website and on YouTube, which are helpful with some procedures related to FP use. Have fun.

Welcome, Drew !

 

People mindlessly repeat the humorous clichés from Laurel and Hardy movies, and thus propagate the prejudice about fountain pens. I am glad that you investigated for yourself. This is the place to learn the truth about fp's . It's great !

 

Serviceable fountain pens can be affordable to everyone. I am using 47¢ pen, that will break, someday, but until then, it writes beautifully.

 

Write with joy.

Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen:
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !

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!
