Hello To My Fellow Fpn Members

Greetings,

 

I am Dinesh and i am from Chennai, Tamilnadu, India. I am intrigued by fountain pens when introduced to me during my schooldays. Since then using them all my life.

 

I have used a Camlin 36 fountain pen with Royal blue brill ink which is an eyedropper pen. It is used from my 8th grade till last year when i decided to retire the pen and hold it as a treasure since

 

it has given me many memories. Then i bought a Lamy safari Charcoal extra fine with converter last year and using it as a daily driver. It is a very good writer.

 

Last month, i casually researched about fountain pens online and found out about various brands to name a few like Cross, Sailor, Montblanc, Pelikan, Kaweco, Jinhao, Sheaffer, etc.

 

I zoomed in on piston fillers and narrowed my choice to Pelikan M1000.

 

I have read our forum posts about how to procure it from either cult pens or from a brick and mortar stores and i am unsure. I know it is a huge leap to go from Lamy Safari to Pelikan M1000.

 

Last week, I went to a Pelikan retailer (WilliamPenn) in VR Mall, Chennai to ask for quote of M1000 and got a quote of Rs. 46000/- and was told that the pen will arrive 20 days after ordering.

 

I went to that physical store to have a glimpse of the pen and try it out, but no choice for me here. So here i am in our forum asking questions in introductory post itself.

 

Am i making a mistake of going for M1000. Please suggest me in this regard.

 

Have a great day everyone.

 

Thanks,

Dinesh

Hello and welcome to this friendly corner of the universe from a fountain pen user in San Diego. There is such a wealth of information waiting for you to discover on this site. The M1000 is a great pen but too long to put in your shirt pocket and a bit large for every day carry. Do not be in a hurry to jump to a "top" pen. There are plenty of nice writing pens at all price points, read this site, learn how to tune and adjust your own nibs and get a feel for what you really enjoy-- have you explored a variety of nib sizes?

I am using my lamy safari with extra fine nib. I would like to try other nib sizes especially medium and italic.

Hi Dinesh, :W2FPN:

 

The M1000 is a great pen, the M800 has the same quality, but a tad smaller, more to my taste.

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!

:W2FPN: hi and welcome. I can share my experience here.

I own a lot of pens. Some are top benchmark pens.

last year I bought my first Pelikan based on an artist who is an expert on ink drawing and it was M200 and I am amazed by that pen. That pen has a steel nib and my interests were about my cursive and it is one of my favorite extra Fine writers. So that pen does more than other more expensive series pens like M400/M600/M800/or M1000 depending on what you want to do you can choose any pen.

They are all different in sizes and weight and choosing a specific nib that gives you more advantages.

I am planning to add more M but not an M1000. in the future. this is my honest experience.

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
