Calligraphy is the visual craft of beautiful writing. Style your letters and flourishes with the equally graceful Pilot Prera Clear Body Fountain Pen with Calligraphy Nib. Fill the pen with your favorite ink using the pre-installed converter or a convenient ink cartridge. A transparent body reveals the ink and mechanism within while tasteful pops of color on the end and cap add a burst of personality. The calligraphy nib creates both generous broad lines and crisp thin lines. Enjoy the quality as you dance on paper with this beautifully crafted pen.
An interview series featuring notable people whose lives intersect with the world of pens. In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Day, we had the privilege of interviewing Brent Acuff, an educator from Hutto, TX. Along with directing his middle school band, he inspires students to write with his own passion for stories and pens.
Please tell us about yourself and what you do.
My name is Brent Acuff, and I am a middle school band director in Hutto, TX, a small town just outside of Austin. I teach music to students between the ages of 11 and 14, and also assist with the high school marching band. I have been a teacher for more than 13 years and an amateur writer for about five years.
For the last seven years, I have been a serious fan and collector of fountain pens, inks, pencils and journals. Lately, I have started encouraging my own students, and now my own daughter, to take an interest in writing and writing supplies. Over the past three years, I have sponsored a group of students in NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program and have had many students successfully complete the competition.

Fountain pens draw attention from all four corners of the world with their enchanting body designs, elegant shapes, and beautiful nibs. But lying at the heart of every pen, beneath all the outward glamor and fame, is the integral filling mechanism that gives life to its very body. Though not always readily visible, fountain pen experts know how valuable a quality filling mechanism is. It determines how long the ink will last between refills and the breadth of inks that are available. For this very reason, there has been such excitement surrounding the release of the compact Kaweco Limited Edition Combimatic Celluloid fountain pen with its piston filling mechanism.
