    Default Hello everyone, from Ohio!!

    I知 a fairly new Fountain Pen user and a Lefty to boot. So, needless to say I知 looking forward to learning and getting to know this community. At this point I own 4 pens: Pilot Metropolitan w/M nib, Pilot Kakuno w/M Nib, Jinhaou X460 w/M nib (I have purchased some size 6 Fine nibs that are supposed to work with this one), Lamy Vista w/LH Nib and I have an Esterbrook J 2556 w/M nib on the way from an EBay purchase. I知 very interested in vintage pens but may be limited because I知 a lefty. Any advice and suggestions are appreciated and welcome. Thanks.

    Welcome to this group! Lots of good information here un the archives and good folks here to help. besides the Esterbrook you have on its way another easy "vintage" pen to get into are Parker 45's. They are nearly always trouble free and very plentiful on the used market. I prefer the nibs made in England but, in truth, there is not a lot of difference noticeable to me.

    welcome. if you're ever in Central Ohio we've got a club that meets monthly (usually the 2nd Sunday, bumped a week later this month for Mothers Day)

    Visit ohiopens.org to sign up for email updates.

    as a lefty and multi-decade FP user, hear me well: you can use any fountain pen.
