    Default Hello fountain pen fans/enthusiasts-- I'm in the Upper Midwest

    I'm happy to be with others who love fountain pens which I had used in boyhood long, long ago. I always kept some of my old fountain pens and then, in 2015, something sparked my interest in them again so I've bought some plus some bottles of Diamine ink. Now I'm waiting for a clear acrylic ED pen from either China or maybe it's from Hong Kong. It's supposed to arrive by Mon. 15 Jan. but that day's a holiday so maybe the mailman will bring it to me on Tues. 16 Jan.

    I favor EF, F, and stub nibs. Since my favorite color is blue, I have some bottles of various blue colors.

    While not a native of the state, I live in the state where Parker Pen was founded in 1888 and I don't live far from the city where Parker once operated making such nice fountain pens.

    Welcome. Diamine is always good, and Chrissy has some Diamine great reviews here. I love Majestic Blue. I too started as a kid and then again later for interest sparked. Have fun here.
