These pens are pretty much geezer items. I doubt if most kids today have ever even touched, let alone used, a fountain pen. Once these were magical names, though: Sheaffer, Pelikan, Waterman, Pilot, Mont Blanc, all pens that top business executives carried in their pockets on a daily basis.
I yield to nobody in my use of technology, but I still have some nice pens, including a Mont Blanc fountain pen/ball point set. I use the fountain pen for handwritten thank you notes or written sigs on typed letters. There’s just something about the silky feel of those inky lines spreading across the page….
Anyway, here are some excellent mid-priced options if a good fountain pen still makes your heart beat a little faster.
Remember – anything you buy from Amazon through any link on this site puts a commission in my pocket, at no cost to yourself, so thank you very much! Also, arf! from the Presidential Pomeranian 2016.
