This Is All My Son-In-Law’S Fault!


Recommended Posts



My son-in-law uses fountain pens so I decided that a pen would make a nice birthday or Christmas present. I played with using a fountain pen in high school (a million years ago) and did some calligraphy in my 30s. I am a lefty, so I used a left-handed Osmiroid calligraphy pen. Recently I bought a Pilot Metro Retro and Im enjoying using it..


I know my SIL would love having a vintage pen, so I looked some on EBay and that generated questions cause I really didnt understand the terminology, and somehow I got to FPN. To make a long story a little but shorter, Ive been on my computer looking and lurking for the last three days!


I think Im In trouble! I would like to do some pen sketching so I ordered a bottle of Noodlers ink that will come with a Platinum Preppy pen and today I ordered an ONLINE Switch from Goulet Pens. And I dont think my SIL will get either one!


Anyway, Hello and Im glad to be here.

Welcome to this friendly little corner of the universe from a fountain pen user in San Diego.

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!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Yep, you are in trouble. Good to own up to it early in the game.

Welcome, Jhurt !


I tried smoking and gambling, instead. They did not help with the slippery slope. Let us know, if

you find a cure.

It is a dangerous hobby! Goulet pens is also my favorite retailer, and they have a ton of informational content on youtube. Granted, they focus only on new as opposed to vintage, but the education Brian supplies is timeless. I hope you enjoy and good luck!
