Hello From Sydney, Australia :)


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I live in Castle Hill (Northwest of Sydney, Australi), originally from China.
My first fountain pen is a red Lamy Safari EF, purchased in high school, loved it so much, I even enjoyed taking notes and doing assignments, just so I get to use my Lamys. :lol:
Stopped using fountain pens (or any pens really) when I was in university doing my IT degree, almost everything was done online/on a computer, totally forgot how a fountain pen feels.
It's about 2 years ago, youtube randomly suggested a video in the "up next" and automatically played, its the one that features the Spencerian customization on a Pilot Falcon, I didn't even know flex nib existed before that video. :o
After the video, I bought my first flex fountain pen, a Pilot custom 912 FA, and fell in love with FP again. I also started to like Calligraphy from that time.
I'm still fairly new to the FP/calligraphy world, would love to share and learn from here.
Hope to make some new friends! :)

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.


Beautiful pens and beautiful handwriting.

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!

A very cheery welcome from Brisbane (AU). Always nice to see another Aussie. You certainly piqued my interest with "A Lover's Complaint" by Shakespeare. I cheated, didn't recognise the work so had to look it up. :-) Love to hear the background story. ;-)

Welcome, Cassie. That's some awesome magic you did with that FA nib of yours!




Mine frustrated so much I ripped it out from the section and feed and snapped the metal with my fingers.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.
