I do believe I have converted my son! [R]

Recently we went to a local woodworkers show and there was a man who turns pens, fountain pens as well. So my son (he's 10) is looking hard at the fountain pens but he doesn't like the $50 price tag and talks about he would like to try one.

Tonight I gave him a lower end Pilot Namiki (similar to this one) and he is in love with it!
Talked about how to store it, care for it, use it, showed him how its own weight should draw the ink from it and it should operate smoothly.
He is overjoyed at his first fountain pen and then he went upstairs to write in his design journal with it, trying out writing and drawing!

Edit:
I have removed the other site, I use adblockers so many things don't show up when I use a website. The pen I gave him is a Pilot pen and the design is similar to the Falcon, I'll see if its marked tomorrow for a more precise pen)
Heh, wouldn't that be funny if I just inadvertently gave my 10 year old a $100+ pen :D

It's not, unless you specifically get one with an FA nib (which I think you can, though first page of google doesn't have anyone selling it so you'll have to dig harder than I care to) Here are sales of the Pilot/Namiki Falcon. Note that none of the nibs are FA nibs.

Hey now, the V5 (and V7) is cheap & disposable but ain't shitty at all! In fact Pilot makes my favorite pens, from the humble V5 to my very best friend the Falcon.

What pen, pencil brand do you sketch best with? [R]

I use Staedtler pigment liners. I have a 0.3mm one that I use as a dedicated sketchbook pen, and I keep those and 0.5mm ones on hand for general writing and sketching and such. I like them because they're waterproof, lightfast, 18 hr cap-off, etc.

I also use a Pilot Namiki Falcon fountain pen with Pilot Namiki black ink, which is also archival quality.

Rather than pencils I use 2mm lead holders - Koh-i-Noor brand are the best I know of. They've got a "four-prong clutch" (to use the links' terms) rather than some shitty click-feed system, so you depress the back and open the clutch and adjust your lead with either your fingers or gravity. For a lead pointer I got with Alvin's rotary lead pointer. There's also this kind, which is fine, but not quite as good - as in, you can get just a bit finer of a point with the first one.

I also suck at sketching, though, and/because I don't do it often, so take this with a grain of salt. That said, I am picky about my writing instruments and went looking for my preferred ones some time ago and came up with these.

What is The best way to get started with Spencerian Script? [R]

I came across this video in the typography reddit and I was mesmerized. The artistry and the flow of the writing was simply amazing. Upon reading the posts I discovered that the style was called spencerien script. I discovered this subreddit and I was hoping for some advice in how to get started

http://www.reddit.com/r/typography/comments/1l434v/writing_with_a_fountain_pen_xpost_from_rasmr/

How do I get started with this writing style? Are there any instructional videos and books that are helpful for beginners?

In that case I do not want to copy their style too much. I would like a style that is influenced by theirs but has my own personality. I have a gold tip fountain pen I can borrow. I will have to ask the details of this pen. If not is there something cheeper I can by to start that is similar enough to learn. When I advance I will be willing to spend the money on that pen.

This is what I found on Amazon. Will this be sufficient? I am not completely familiar with the significance of the customization and how much it would add to the cost
