Hi, I'm a Fountain Pen Nut. I can relate to the ads. I have some of the pens shown. I pretty much only use fountain pens all the time. I probably have about 50 working pens from an assortment of manufactures. Not only are they a dream to write with but it's fun for what I call the shock value of it. Most people aren't expecting you to pull out a fountain pen to write a check with. Some people don't pay any attention to anything but some do. I've heard things like " I haven't seen one those for a long time." or "My mother used to use one." or "We used those in school.". Well it's all fun. I live a lot of the vintage thing in many parts of my life. Are there any other pen nuts out there?
