    Default Newbie from New England

    Silly title, I couldn't think of anything better. I've been into fountain pens since 1977, and still love mine but use them less than I used to due to a hand injury and surgery. A good recovery but not quite complete. I have a few pens I love and some out there that I long for, but it will be a while!

    Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell. Sorry about the hand but look for some wider sections as found on Sheaffer Legacy family pens.

    Pens I love and own - my Pelikans (120, M400, brown tortoise 400NN), my Omas green arco paragon, and my MB 149 (college graduation gift). Most are broad except the MB, which is F or XF, but I use it for grading - the fine point is useful for marginal comments in a way that a BB CI isn't. There are lots of pens I'd love to own, but I kid myself I'm saving for a Romillo - the idea of that giant, beautiful nib, any way I want it - well, it's intoxicating. I say I kid myself because we are a family with medical expenses, not all of which are covered by insurance. Whether or no the Romillo ever comes, though, I have an assortment of pens I love (although I've misplaced one of my favorite 120 nibs in a move. That is what my daughter used to call a trajesty.)

    You're more or less a neighbor. Sorry to hear about the hand injury; keep working on the recovery. There are evidentially a few of us around.
