    Default Just joined so bare with me

    I have never really used a fountain pen and to be honest I could not even believe there are forums for them !!!!

    However after losing my Cross 10k rolled gold ballpoint I decided to replace it from Ebay and start using the fountain pen I bought years back a standard Century 2 gold nib.

    I am not "into" pens as some may be, such as stamp collecting but I do enjoy writing, and whilst my letters are printed I do start and end wi9th a hand written Dear..... and Yours........

    BUT I hated using the pens, the thing kept running dry !!!, would not do a whole signature and being (happy to say ) Autistic it really annoyed me, then I found an article on the right ink to use, well DUH! didn't occur to me, just ink is ink is ink.

    Well during the past month, TWO additions two rolled gold century 2 fountain pens AND thrown away cartridges, now using fountain pen converters with Sceaffer Scrip and this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I am really enjoying my pens.

    In fact I found THIS on Ebay and it has to be one of the best pens I have used £100 including postage

    That is a beautiful pen. Thank you for posting. Fountain pens appeal to me over other types because of the nib choice. I prefer fine because I think it makes my handwriting look better and it easier to use. My go to regular gel type is a Pilot Precise V7 which I've converted to V5 or extra fine.

    I trust and hope you enjoy your new journey. There are members here who have forgotten more than I will ever know.

Smaller than the largest pen fora, larger than some, you'll find a comfortable community of pen-centric people here, with a growing body of posts, reviews, and group knowledge. Mostly, you'll find people who are enthusiastic about fountain pens, and fountain pen people.

    It would also help if I learned to spell bare bear
