My intro: a 4-month noob to fountain pens, thrilled owner of 13 and hoping for 3 more under the Christmas tree. Discovered them while following a couple of authors I admire who are aficionados (hi, Elizabeth Bear, Amal el-Mohtar, if you happen to be members here!). Not quite sure how I've managed to live my life for as long as I have without fountain pens ever really falling within my radar (I'm a grandmother) but they have now and no looking back.

 

Discovering fountain pens has been life-changing for me. They compel me to journal which is vital to my well-being. And they add an organic magic to my creative writing, channeling my imagination onto paper (loooove Clairefontaine).The more I use a fountain pen, the more it becomes an extension of me rather than just writing equipment. Which is why I name each of mine, usually something having to do with writing or literature. (Feel free to judge but I know I can't be the only one.)

 

My collection currently includes Pilot Metros, Lamys, one Plat Preppy, one Monteverde Regatta Sport, Jinhaos and Nemo Singularities. I prefer an XF to F nib and wet ink for crisp, speedy writing. Don't have a grail pen in mind yet and have yet to explore vintage pens. Am a bit obsessed with Lamy AL-Stars. (The 2019 SE color will be ... ??? Dying to find out.)

 

So, hi. :)

Greetings and welcome to FPN from a grandpa who started collecting pens when he was single. :)

 

Nay, in fact when he was a teen studying in school in 1960s - 1970s.

 

Hope you enjoy your time here with us.

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!


- Winston Churchill
