    Not so much the vintage pens but I am familiar with the really flexible nibs they used to use
    Those are amazing, what ink do you use?

    True, it is really quite hard to write on printer paper with a medium gold nib. But my handwork with a ballpoint has fallen from lack of practice from using a ball-point. I use fountain pens maybe 14 hours a day.

    I'm the only person I know who still uses a fountain pen at school! I use a Parker one. It really annoys me that we have to use black biro in exams.

    I write on Claire Fontaine and my nibs are glassy. Like wooh. I write for Westminster School (the school I attend) and it is very tiring and we spend maybe a month on each extract. Right now, I have to produce a script for our annual Charles Dickens Requiem haha. What do you do?

    Try a dip pen, they seem of better use for calligraphy. Have fun and show us some of your awesome work!

    Do you do GCSE because you're allowed to use fountain pens. Are you into Philosophy?!

    I've been learning for around a year now.
    I guess dip pens are those pens where you dip the pen nib in the ink pot?

    Indeed, you can get a pretty inexpensive set from The Pen Shop, I'll even give you my discount.
