Hello From Rio, Brazil!



Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

I have been consulting and reading pen reviews of this forum for some years. It is a pleasure to be part of this community and to be a member here in Brazil.
I believe that my grandfather is responsible for my love for the ink fountain pens. When I was a kid, I remember helping him do the cleaning and recharging them. All the care he had with his Parkers, Watermans, blue and black ink bottles ... In spite of my passion for analog tools, I forgot about fountain pens when I was growing up.
My return to the world of fountain pens was at first very practical and with specific purpose. I used them again to draw in the university.Then it was only a matter of time before I recalled my childhood experiences, my moments with my grandfather, the pleasure of writing with them.
I continue to use the ink fountain pens daily to write and draw, but now I am beginning to collect some examples that are much more than tools for the job - they are objects of design, engineering and art.
I have collected and used Montblanc, Omas, Aurora, Conid, Franklin Christoph, Sailor, Pilot, Lamy, Noodler's, TWSBI, etc.
cheers!
- Fabrizio

Greetings and welcome to FPN from Islamabad, Pakistan.

 

You have some very good pens there. Which one do you think is the best writer among your pens.

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

 

You should try to add a Conway Stewart to your collection, they're great writers, especially with a custom ground nib.

 

Enjoy the journey that you are on. Write with joy.

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!

Thank you very much, mitto!

What a difficult question to choose between them. It would be like choosing between members of a very well-balanced team, but ... I have some favorites. Some pens are always in the list of favorites and others have a more dynamic ranking and can enter the list. :D

Currently my favorites are the Montblanc 149 (1985 - with ebonite feed and 14k nib), Conid Bulkfiller Regular (took the place from my Visconti Homo Sapiens), Omas Paragon Arco Bronze and Franklin Christoph Model 19 (with a flex nib).

The acrylics from Conway Stewart are gorgeous and the pen designs are iconic! I hope someday to add one to my collection.

Thank you Henricum_Tropen! Write on!

Welcome, Fabrizio !

 

 

Do you have any of your grandfather's fountain pens ? Are they still somewhere in the family ?

Yes! We still have some pens that are with my uncle.

I have one of them. A Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 from the 80's.

I really like the nib

 

Thank you Sasha!

Welcome to the Fountain Pen Network! :W2FPN: We're glad to have you with us!

Do you have a pen you use everyday?

 

 

It´s wonderful to be part of this great community! Thank you!

(I love your shop and the support you give to the community)

 

In the last few months I have used the CONID Bulkfiller Regular daily at work!

It's a sturdy pen with impressive ink capacity for continuous use (as well as being very well designed for long write sessions)

Hi and :W2FPN: .

<i>Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favourite flower, your favourite song, your favourite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart-Leigh Bardugo. Please assume no affiliation, as I'm just a pleased customer.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
