Hi from New Zealand!


Recommended Posts


Hello there!

After reddit's r/fountainpens no longer satisfied me, i desperately began the search for a better fountain pen community.

I found it here!


I don't own any fancy pens but i do have:
Lamy Aion (Fine and Medium nib)
Lamy Safari (Fine and Extra Fine nib)

Ancient parker vector (heirloom?)

Pilot MR1 (euro version of the Metropolitan/Cocoon) medium nib (lost the nib somehow)

Pilot metropolitan plain black fine nib

Pilot prera black demonstrator with a medium nib.


Im always having a debate on a medium or fine nib! (would love if you, yes you, reading this, can post your opinion too!)


have a nice day


(sorry for the horrendous grammar)

Hello from the US!
You have a nice collection already in my humble opinion!

How about this- I love flex nibs.
To flex or not to flex? :)

Hi back! and a warm welcome from sunny Motueka.

Excellent start to the collection pennoob.

I don't have an Aion yet but I really enjoy Lamys too, both new and vintage.

I absolutely love writing with my Lamy Studio's! I have a few different colours and nib sizes.

My #1 favourite is a Lamy 1.1mm steel nib and second would be a Lamy 14k gold, Broad nib

Always happy to chat about stuff.

Great to see another pen enthusiast in NZ

See you around the topics.
