The fountain pen collection

I was hoping my Lamy 2000 would arrive today so that could be my first post in here, but unfortunately it did not show up so I am just going to post my collection so far. I am running out of spending money as I am saving for college, so it will probably remain this way for the next few months, or at least until I become acclimated to this new schedule and can start looking for another job.

Well here is what I am working with at the moment!

True works of art. Stunning. Care to trade for a handful of Papermates? :twisted:

Are you looking to get your papermates gang raped by inkwell leviathans?

Re: The fountain pen collection

Don't use Paperwastes. Ought to grab and photograph the fountain pen I got from my grandmother, who was gifted it by her grandmother. When she saw that I knew how to draw the ink, blot it, and use it for writing script, she gave it to me. It is from about 1905-1910. Sterling silver.

Have been keeping it packed away so my son does not try to disassemble it to see how it works. :roll:

Re: The fountain pen collection

Wow, beautiful collection NNFAK, good to see fellow FP-appreciators around :)
which one is the most used by you?

hahaha Gordon, I'm not surpised :D

here is my collection of regularly used pens:
I hope you don't mind me posting here as well NNFAK :)

The pelikan is my favourite, everything you can wish for in a fountain pen, and then a little bit more :)
(The preppy is a new one after I had one stolen. :( )
Sry for the low qaulity foto, I'm far too lazy to do anything which requires me to stand up ATM. :chill:
(EDIT: wow rechecking NNFAK's beautiful photos, I'm quite ashamed by my shoddy photo. So I tried to overcome lazyness to get off and make nice pics but the battle was hopeless, I lost.)
To infinity... and beyond!

Re: The fountain pen collection

Good pics are hard. I bought a little cheapy Chinese photo tent which gives me OK lighting but my point and click camera, even when used on macro and with a tripod still gives me less than decent focus. I will try again next time I make some lock picks, but it is frustrating. Yours aren't that bad though, unless compared to some of the guys here that seem to have mastered the technique. The main thing is to the idea across.

Re: The fountain pen collection

My hat is off to all of you who still practice the lost art of letter writing. And then to use fountain pens on top of that is truly remarkable, I am very impressed and jealous. Thanks for the pictures, Mark :cool:
