Hey folks,

 

I joined a couple of years ago, but never posted (I don't think I did LOL), only lurked, and now I have some questions, so I figured it'd be rude to just barge into a forum and start demanding answers!

 

Anyway, I'm newly 64 yrs old, I've used fountain pens off and on since 3rd grade (we were taught cursive using Sheaffer "cartridge pens", and I actually bought one recently on eBay just for the sentiment).  I always had a couple of fountain pens around (a chrome Cross, a black lacquer Parker Sonnet) but I started getting seriously back into FPs 6-7 yrs ago.  Now I have waaaaaaaay too many; a lot of cheapo pens, a few midrange and a couple of (to me!) "high end" pens.  I have "penabled" my husband, and gifted him a few very nice pens and now he's a fan, too.

 

Anyway, I love reading the forums and learning more about FPs.

 

Kathleen

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY
