I am a huge fan of Fountain Pen Revolution’s Himalaya pen (not Himalayan as I’ve been calling it all this time!) From here on referred to as “FPR” so not to have to spell it out! Currently I am asking them to make a couple more colors!
My first was the orange tiger color; once I experienced their Ultra-Flex nibs (the only nib I would bother with as it is lovely especially for a non-gold flexy nib) I quickly began collecting them as I could afford.
The thing about the Ultra-Flex nib (an upgrade they offer when purchasing)
is that it allows you some flexy creative expression
without the high price tag of a gold nib.
The FPR Himalaya pens have a lovely wet juicy flow,
feel good in my hand, and I can post or not as I wish.
The only downside to these pens is the converter,
a push type that many pens use and I am not fond of them.
Thankfully I don’t have to use it often!
(Note, when Kevin read my review he wanted me to know this:
“One of the main reasons we created the Himalaya V2 is because of the converter.
That pen uses a twist converter instead of push-pull.“)
As people found out I loved these FPR Himalaya pens I inherited a couple more — and yes, I have every one of them filled with the gorgeous Robert Oster inks below!

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
Do you match the ink to your pen–so you know what’s what?
Often but not always. It makes it so much easier!

Your variations in colors for both pens and the colors that ink them are LIFE ❤️ Do you find yourself typically gravitating towards a particular color or colors? Because I’ve made it a goal to have a rainbow of pens and inks, but I literally ALWAYS seem to pick blues/purples/pinks. And how do you keep up the variety in your collection if you do tend to lean towards certain colors more?
Also, now I want a school of sharks. You’ve convinced me on it’s cuteness 😍 ☺️
