Good Afternoon, Namaste, Sat Shree Aakaal, Salam Friends,

This is Tushar. I hail from the city of Delhi, India. I'm a pen lover. Specially fountain pens. During the childhood days I used to live at Nai Sarak and there I purchased so many fountain pens of all shapes, sizes, materials, ink systems etc. from a small shop near my house. That time they used to be so cheap and inexpensive. But, not even in my dreams I have ever gave it a thought to receive so much technical information regarding FP's. Their costs have sky rocketed and there have been a drastic fall in their usage which really saddens me.

 

The day I browsed this forum and created my account my perspective towards fountain pens have changed entirely. I have started thinking differently and my attitude towards my pens have totally renewed. I've started loving them even more. Thanks to all the senior members of the community for sharing such valuable information. I will surely like to do the reviews of my pens and share it with all of you. Thanks again for everything.

 

Good Day! Cheers!

:)

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

 

I hope you enjoy your time here with us.

 

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!

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
