    Default Hi from Amsterdam

    Hi all,

    I have been writing happily with my Lamy CP1 for a few years, I love its clean design and the nib performs well. But since the start of corona the ‘fountain pen bug’ just got me. And it got me good…

    I’m glad I found this forum, there are a lot of informative posts and finally I found some people who share my enthusiasm for fountain pens. My girlfriend (ballpoint user) is getting tired of hearing of all the new pens I find interesting, so I was looking for a place to share my thoughts and get inspired.

    Currently, I have 8 fountain pens and would like to add a Danitrio Mikado and a Pelikan raden green ray to my collection. I added a picture of some of the pens I currently own. The 17th of October I want to go to my first pen show in Utrecht, so if you have any tips – please let me know!

    Welcome Daan.

    Based on what I can see of your collection and your wants...I can suggest bringing a lot of money to your first pen show.

    From Missouri.

    Glad to have you with us!

    Beautiful collection! I have many Japanese Urushi and Maki-e fountain pens and all of them are elegant and so very well made. My Danitrios are among my favorites!

    My Compliments!



    Here are a couple of mine.
