Hello From Lahore

Hello, Hi, Salam

I have joined the network today. Its great that my registration is validated. I owned a lot of pens but currently have 11 fountain pens available with me. I must add that I gave away many pens as well as lost a few in past 12 years. My quest started with Montblanc 145 back in 2007. I wanted to buy the best and that was the best one could buy in Lahore then. I still have it and I love it. Must add that I like Broad and Medium nibs. Not a fine nib person.

My Current Pens

1. Montblanc 145

2. Pilot Metropolitan

3. Lamy Studio

4. Lamy Al Star

5. Parker IM Insignia

6. Parker Frontier

7. Waterman Hemisphere

8. Sheaffer Sagaris

9. Sheaffer Fashion 240

10. Platinum Century 3776

11. Cross Bailey Medallion

 

As all brands are not available in my country so I got my Platinum 3776 after ordering at cultpens.com. The service was excellent. Right now I ordered a twsbi diamond on gouletpen.com. Lets hope its service is also that good. Pens on my radar are Sailor 1911 and Pelikan M400. Lets see how it all shapes up.

Warm regards to all

Welcome to our corner of the universe.

Waalaikum Salam

I think youll find that Goulet offers stellar service. The shipping times might be a little too long compared to cultpens.

 

Im originally from Karachi now living in San Francisco area. I used to buy a lot of stuff from Goulet in the past. Not so much nowadays because I have too many pens and inks. Jetpens and anderson pens are also quite good and have a faster transit time in shipping to my location.

 

Do you practice writing in urdu as well, with a calligraphy nib? I didnt see Dollar pens on your list, its a very low cost Pakistani brand with surprisingly good quality.

 

Once again, welcome from all of us.

Greetings and welcome to FPN from Islamabad, Pakistan.

 

Next you need a good old Parker 51, Dr sahib. Else, you are not a real penlover. :D

 

 

ڈاکٹر صاحب! میں نے اپنی پوری زندگی میں صرف ایک ھی ڈاکٹر کو فاوٹین پین سے پرسکرپشن لکھتے دیکھا ھے. امید ھے اپ بھی فاونٹین پین استعمال کرتے ھون گے. بشرطیکہ اپ میڈیکل ڈاکٹر ھی ہیں

Welcome. How do you like the Waterman Hemisphere? I have two Watermans (Laureat and Phileas) but they are from before the year 2000.

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!

Dr Sarmad Qureshi hasn't come back to FPN after posting his Intro. I pray he is well.

Many thanks brother. Good to know you. The transit time is 3-4 days either from cult or Goulet. The problem is the taxes that almost doubles the price along with high charges from DHL or FedEx. Naturally I cant use all pens all the time but I have a few favourites while the rest, rest in my pen cases.

Regards

Welcome to this amazing community! Hope to see more from you soon!

P.S. I'm also considering buying the TWSBI diamond 580.

 

Thank you. TWSBI is beautiful and very smooth.
