    Oh man.....a Black Assault Fountain Pen!

    Kidding aside, I used to have a fountain pen, not that elaborate of one, this one had the ink cartridges. I loved that pen, but it's difficult to find the ink cartridges.

    I write exclusively with fountain pens. I am a collector of vintage fountain pens, primarily Parker Vacumatics and Parker 51. Although, I own several dozens vintage pens, I also own some modern pens. They are a pleasure to write with.

    Good choice on the Lami Safari, a very good pen and it'll last you a long time. Congrats!

    Google stationery and you'll find ink cartridges or go to a local stationery story which sells writing supplies, such as Staples.

    I love fountain pens and use them every day. While I have 7 of them (Old and new Parkers, Mont Blanc's Conway Stuart and Pelikan's), my favorites are the Pelikan. They are not too expensive (you can pick one up used starting at about $100), and have great nibs. However, they fill only via a piston from a bottle of ink. I don't mind this at all since they hold more ink and flow more smoothly than ink cartridges.

    I'm actually looking at a Pelikan M215. Might purchase with some birthday money I have. What Pelikans do you have?

    Fountain Pen Network has a wealth of information and reviews that are pretty helpful.

    I considered the Visconti Van Gogh Green but it goes for about $150 more then the M215. An on-line store has them on sale for a little more then the M215.

    I reall enjoyed watch Col. Landa of the SS add to the suspense of his task of killing the jews in the first scene of Inglourious Basterds, when he sat down at the table and filled his pen with his ink bottle, and so meticulously sat down and wrote out the ages of the children in the family they were searching for. he kne where they were the whole time. Just shows what a simple thing like a fountain pen can add to a movie.

    Fountain pens are froma more simple romantic time. Congrats on your purchase.

    I have gone the other way,just bought myself the Pulse Livescribe, a digital pen that capturess everything you write and say,then transfers to your computer,as well as converts script to text.
