Handwriting Pressure

Choosing a pen is a personal statement, so selections of a nib should be a major concern. Heavy pressure writers should go with a broad or a medium nibbed fountain pen. A fine-nibbed pen is right for those who who exert a light pressure.
The pressure you apply on the pen has an effect, as can be seen.


About me


The excitement  that I felt for fountain pens drove me in 1977, to work for Sam Flax Stationary in New York, where I met Ralph Bendelac at the time, one of the most solicited fountain pen repair specialist, from him I acquired the skill to take care of your fountain pen nib, later on, I use to seek advice from Phil Weiderlight owner of the world famous "Fountain Pen Hospital", among others, acquiring the maturity and experience needed for the trade. for these fine gentlemen goes my eternal gratitude.

 Later on, as a pen manufacturer's representative for Waterman, Cartier, Yafa and Visconti , I had the opportunity to visit and train personnel for the most famous pen stores -Joon's, Arthur Brown, Fountain Pen Hospital, Fahrney's, Bertram Ink Well among others-.  

The passion for the fountain pen drove me to design some accessories and leather goods; directly related to the fountain pen; all using my guidelines on how to better use a fountain pen.

Some of these accessories are displayed for sale, in my products section.
