This is the first fountain...
, September 4, 2012
This is the first fountain pen I've owned that cost over $16. My past experience
is with the Platinum Preppy and the Sailor Candy. This pen is a whole world of
awesome, especially when comparing it to the nasty Sailor Candy pen.
I am using the Lamy Safari Fountain Pen with the fine nib, the converter, and
Waterman ink. The pen flits easily across the page whether I'm writing slowly or
quickly. The only time I've had skipping is when I was using it on a card
purchased at Papyrus - obviously it was the stock and not the pen. I probably
wrote twenty pages in my journal within 1.5 days of purchasing this pen because
I just wanted to keep experiencing it.
The pen looks like a $3 office pen. There is nothing that screams, "Awesome
pen!" when you look at it. I tried the one that looks just like this but has an
aluminum body, and that pen was far too heavy for me to be happy. If it needs to
be cheap looking in order to be an ideal writing instrument for me, so be it :-)
I just hope no one walks away from my desk with it when I use it at work. It has
a very similar appearance to one of the cheap brands they purchase for office
