    Default Hi 👋

    Hello from 🇫🇷

    Im living basically on the Swiss border but still on the French side. Always loved fountain pens and Ive been using one for...well, a very long time. Currently Im using a Waterman (A cheap school one) since I stupidly broke mine. 💔 I know.

    I'm currently looking for one that would feel as comfortable as my old one but sadly haven't quite found one. Any suggestion?

    In any case, hello everyone, my name is nadine and looking forward to meet you all. Thank you for having me. 😊

    Welcome Nadine!

    I'd imagine the local food is pretty good over by you. I'm thinking cheese and chocolate. What else you got?

    This is a fine place to find out how to replace your beloved pen (probably with a dozen or more good candidates!)

    G'Day, Nadine! Hope you enjoy the menagerie.

    What sort of pen (the broken one) was your favorite?

    There are quite a few pen repair wizards on this site, who might provide a fix or suggest a replacement.

    Thanks all for the welcome!
    My old pen was a cheap Waterman one but I liked it a lot. Never had a better one to be honest. I was particularly impressed with how long it lasted. I managed to repair the nib that I stupidly damaged when the cartridge pushed the whole top when I inserted it. It seem that the little rod inside got twisted. I managed to straighten it and take it all apart and repair it but its clearly gone and somewhat leaking...
    I just got a Scriveiner and we'll see how long it lasts. I'm not a big fan so far. I had a Parker a long time ago that was great but it was a bit annoying about the cartridges being different.

    I'm afraid chocolates and cheese are pretty much the only big foods here. Lots of different kinds though. Some kinds of cold meats and sausages. Blueberry pie too. 😀 (Some good wines as well. Not really food though). That's all that comes to mind. 😉
