Venting by macaddicted
I suppose I just need to get this out. I just received what I consider to be a very distressing notice from a pen site (usually goes by a three letter acronym). There is currently a discussion regarding the nature of their board, and one of my posts was redacted for what I consider to...

Ink Question by eb
From a newbie - I moved up from a few cheap fountain pens to a Waterman Phileas with a medium nib, which is terrific. I used one cartridge, and then used the converter. I filled it with black Quink I bought from Staples and am very satisfied with the results. While I'm not looking to change inks, I...

How many 'collect' non-functioning pens? by Curtis L. Russell
Just curious. For a long time I only had functioning pens, mostly new. Maybe buying a couple of more flexible older(working) pens was the beginning of the dam breaking, but lately I've purchased four pens, all older, all non-functioning. None of them cost over $ 10 and they all were different in at...

How Things Have Changed by Juan
2 or 3 years ago I used to check this group everytime I was online. Now, a weekly check is enough to notice that there's just a few new threads (if any). To make things worse, most of the posts are about fountain pens I don't like at all (and according to the posts, I'm not alone here),...

WARNING: Noodler's Inks by ~shit-magnet~
These inks may not be the best for medium and/or fine nibbed pens. I have experienced drying and clogging of both a Waterman and Romet medium, both newer pens. Because the higher concentration of pigment in Noodlers, the stroke-line looks better when used with fine and medium nibs but be prepared...

Looking For an Ink Recommendation by Jeremy
I have 2 Sheaffer Prelude fountain pens and one Cross Century Fountain pen (I believe that it has been discontinued by now). I am currently using Scrip ink, with the pens' converters. I have noticed that Scrip black ink, in cartridges, seems thicker than does the Blue ink, either in cartridges or...

on handwriting by Juan
Hi, I recently have received some "complaints" from some friends and coworkers about my handwriting. It is cursive, and I use F/M nibs (of course fps). What's going on? My handwriting is not bad; it is not like that rounded and separated letters some (most) people use though. A coworker even...

Innovation in Fountain Pens by David Heverly
I've been thinking about how fountain pens have changed over the years and it doesn't seem there has been anything truly innovative in the last 40 or 50 years. Maybe there have been innovations in the manufacture of fountain pens and there may be some new materials such as ABS plastic, but the...

First time FP buyer/user by ArmsTom
Hey there everyone. I've grown tired of the "5 for $3.97" pens you buy at WalMart and thought I'd give a fountain pen a go. I'm a college student, so cost is a factor. I don't /really/ want to spend above $50. I'm also a complete newbie to foutain pens, so I want something that is relatively...

Storing fountain pens with ink in them? by scottmandue
Hope I'm not posting too much but I'm new to the hobby and have lots of questions. So far I have two fountain pens, one I keep at my desk at work and one I keep at home for doodling and taking notes while watching TV. The one at work is relatively new, works perfectly, and I keep it in a coffee cup...

Waternan Hemisphere Problems by AndyH
I was bought a Waterman Hemisphere for xmas. Normally I use Lamy Safari, Cross or Parker fountain pens so I am well used to fountains pens when they work and when they dont. I decided to wait until the Waterman ink converter arrived from the Parker Pen Co. I then filled it with Noodlers Purple. ...

Pelikan M1000 - How many drops does your barrel hold? by LarryW[_3_]
If I draw ink v e r y s l o w l y, my M1000 will release up to 20 drops, but the average is more like 17. For such a large capacity barrel, wouldn't it seem to hold more? The pen was just returned from Chartpak because of this and 2 other complaints (pen was too dry and the nib was a bit too...

First-time fountain pen? by Iain Dalton
I'm a high-school student, with a $75/wk. salary, so I'm not looking to get an expensive pen, but I'm getting or getting myself a journal this Christmas holiday, something I've procrastinated a long time, and I want it to look worthy of showing to my posterity, so I've decided to get a fountain...

Long-term storage of ballpoints by Mike S.
Or, more specifically - how to keep the ink from drying out? I read a pen-related blog wherein the author suggested storing them in zip-lock plastic bags from which air was removed with a straw prior to sealing, in order to create a partial vacuum. No followup on whether it works. Thinking it...

Fountain Pens. What's the attraction? by The Visitor[_2_]
Okay guys, I'm curious if anybody will share their reason for liking fountain pens. I like them because they take me back to what I feel were better times. It's real writing. Seems more cultured perhaps. I got wondering about this because I read this newspaper article about people still...

Levenger Infinity Journal? by KCat
Anyone tried these with PR and similar inks? I don't care about the leather binding but 30 bucks for 600 pages is a pretty good deal *if* the paper will hold up to my dark and dense inks. I don't usually care for that sort of binding but... posting this everywhere (well, 3 forums) TIA, kcat
