    Default New Guy from BULL RUN

    Had gotten really frustrated looking for what I want on the inter-web before I was lucky and ran across this forum. I'm older than dirt, former army medic, Registered Nurse, university in TEXAS, interested in Guns and Roses. Favorite pen in the past was a Shaffer Snorkel but left it behind somewhere. Now want to be able to sign my JOHN HANCOCK like he did, so looking for a wide nib calligraphy fountain pen in the less than $50 - $100 range on which I can change nibs, (hopefully).

    Any suggestions for me? If I can't find a good refillable fountain pen on which nibs can be changed at will, I'll probably go for one around 1.5 -- Think that'd be good? Thanks for any help!

    Carry On!

    Welcome.

    The Lamy Joy comes with a calligraphy nib in 1.1mm, 1.5mm or 1.9mm and all of the Lamy Safari, Al-Star and Nexx pens use the same steel nib so they are all interchangeable. Ensuring you get the calligraphy nib first means you can use it in any of those pens.

    TWSBI has interchangeable nibs but only goes up to 1.1mm.

    Welcome! My Dad was an Army Medic in Texas in the 1920s. Id second the choice of the Lamy Joy. Its a long desk pen style and not expensive. I use my 1.5mm as a calligraphy pen.

    I'm the human companion to a 32 year old African Grey Parrot who donates feathers frequently which work -- sorta well! Thanks for all the other suggestions so far.
