Long-time fountain pen fascinated individual, who for some reason, is having a nasty flare up of fountain pen fever and just now discovered this extraordinary web site and community.

I don’t remember anymore how I even learned about fountain pens to become interested in them sometime in my late teens. I think I might have hinted/ asked for a pen for my high school graduation and I received a non-fountain pen which I distinctly remember going down town to exchange for what I really wanted- a gorgeous, slightly-marbled brown Parker with gold trim (which I still have an cherish).

Over the decades my interest in FP has spiked and receded for other interests (music, first-edition hard-cover books, mechanical watches, etc. cheap hobbies!). I’ve mostly purchased new pens but in my most recent fountain pen fever, I’m obsessed with older examples, especially early Waterman and Parker. The Wahl-Eversharp company has come into my notice and that’s yet another rabbit hole to get lost in.

I look forward to adding to my small collection and learning from the amazing knowledge base on this site.

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
