I had a number of fountain pens some years ago - I sold most but still look for good, USEFUL pens...not big ornate things you'd pull out to sign a Treaty... I have some Lamy daily users, but also Pelikan, Omas, Cross, a big Montblanc in a black base - I have a pair of cool colorful Bexley pens and another older blue Bexley set. I probably carry the colorful Bexley set as much as anything. Roller + Fountain I generally only use them to sign things, and generally like Broad nibs - I find I don't use the fine/medium nibs that I still have.

Vintage DIY-ers interest check
Anyone in the community collect (and repair) vintage pens for use? I find it is often the next step in fountain pen collecting, but it took me about 10 years into the hobby before I built up the courage (and had the income to devote to it). I started with a lot of cheap and broken lever fill pens off eBay and now hunt specific brands and types. However, there’s just something elegant and satisfying in bringing an old pen back to life and pushing it back into service! My latest was a pair of wartime Conway Stewarts, which are uncommon pens here in the US but some of my favorites. [image]

3D-Printed Fountain Pens
[image] You'd think that, with the popularity of 3D printers, there'd be dozens of 3D-printed fountain pens on the market. Thankfully, that's not been the case. I think, for a 3D-printed pen to succeed, it has to bring something new to the table. Something that traditional manufacturing methods can't already offer. To that end, the only project that comes close, in my opinion, is Additive Pens with their Double Helix. [image] They used 3D printing to create what is basically an eye-dropper that would have been practically impossible using traditional methods. [image] What impresses me the most, is that they only implement 3D printing where needed. [image] The cap and section of their latest batch, for example, are turned from Alumilite blanks the traditional way. [image] What do you think of them? Do you want one? I know, I do. You know of other 3D-printed writing instruments that deserve mention? Look forward to your comments. I've created a poll for anyone who'd like to...

Thoughts on Wooden Pens
Hi All, I'd like to know your thoughts an opinions on pens made of wood. Things I'm interested in are shape/contour (and whether or not that is an important factor for you), price, weight, wood type (as well as color, grain structure/density). Also, RIP this community. I'm sure there are better places to buy pens anyways :(

What happened to drop?
This sucks. I used to look forward to browsing and buying from this website but now the categories are severly limited and I can find what I want here Anymore. It was good while it lasted I guess. Could have been a great business model. So long drop.

What a joke.
Not only do they force you to sign in with an account or email and then choose categories for them to spam you with, they no longer have fountain pens and are peddling their own brand. If you're wondering where the pens are, I am guessing massDrop hasn't convinced any real pen manufacturers to co-brand with them. Very disreputable if one were to ask me.
