Hello everyone,

After two days waiting, finally I got approved. So glad to meet all of you here. I love fountain pens and the most interesting thing to me is fountain pen mechanism. I love button mechanism and also the capless one (which is very easy to get in Japan). What is your favorite?

 

Im also working on an IOS, maybe firstly an excel sheet that can help fountain pen lovers manage their pen collection. Its lovely that i can share everything about fountain pen here since my friends around my age are with iphone all day 😭.

Thank you and I hope you have a nice day.

Hello ! Welcome ! I too am a new FPN member. I was in Japan last week, but didn't make it to any pen shops. I love the Pilot/Namiki VP, I have a few. I wondered if these are a better price in Japan than the U.S.. I have ordered online from vendors in Japan. Best regards, George "Arivistapen" Uyeda

Hi binbean,

 

My favorite pens are Japanese and I am very fond of Pilot Vanishing Point. Glad you are here.

Love all, trust a few, do harm to none. Shakespeare

Very nice to hear that you have been to Japan 😊😊

And yes, the price is better when you buy directly in Japan, especially online store that ships within Japan.such as Pen House or Nagasawa or stores on Rakuten and Amazon.

 

Online vendor that ships abroad might offer at a little bit higher prices but many of them are really reliable and have great prices. Lastime when I was in Singapore, I had great experiences with Pisuke, Engeika so maybe you can try them out.

 

Best regards from Japan_Binbean

Greeting from Finland and welcome to FPN! Japan = Awesome! There are so many things I love about Japan starting from the people, food and culture. :)

My favorite fountain pen things are piston fillers (vintage Pelikans especially) and blue-black & turquoise inks. Currently running with Pelikan 4001 inks mainly but finally got around to ordering Sailor Souboku which should be awesome. Too bad it is rather terribly hard to get and pricey in the EU...

Anyway, welcome again, this is certainly the right place to be if you love fountain pens. :)

Thank you very much. I do like piston filler system and Sailor Souboku too. This new line is awesome. Im so lucky that they are very easy to get in Japan. Hopefully you will come here someday 😊

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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
