- Recommend me a Fountain Pen
I’ve had a Parker Sonnet for 15 years and it’s been great. Mines the Matt Black with Gold clip and ferrels.
I use the piston-fill converter and bottled ink. It can be a phaff but I don’t like throwing away the empty ink cartridges.
Only issue; no one understands when you won’t let them use it 🙁Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Cross are very nice to use, as are old Parkers.
I’ve just started a small collection of old fountain pens…………
Welcome to a scarily addictive world! I have my Cross (Every day pen) and then a collection of lovelies. Including a 51, Pelikans and some lovely old lacquered Conway Stewarts.
For real world use, though, make sure you try them out. If you want a status symbol, buy a Mont Blanc and wave it around in meetings. Everyone will think you’re a male chicken, but you might feel teh awsumz.Posted 4 years agocranberryMember
Have a look at cultpens.co.uk – they have an extensive selection, and they’ve always been quick when I’ve ordered from them.
I use a Lamy Accent day-to-day, nice, and a good weight to it, and half of your budget.
Edit: there are also some very nice notebooks on that page, which might be a nice gift/useful – http://www.cultpens.com/acatalog/Leuchtturm1917-Notebooks.htmlPosted 4 years agoCHBSubscriber
Lamy are my fave pens.Posted 4 years ago
I have a Lamy 2000 which can be picked up for a little over £100.
However, for pure writing and use you can’t beat the Lamy Studio in stainless steel.
£35 a pen and write brilliantly with a good weight.
I used extra fine nibs in my lamy pens.
The studios are good pens too, but I find them too light to use.gofasterstripesSubscriber
I have used two of these, one after the other. Lasted a couple of years each.
Lovely, but light. Can’t argue with the price though 🙂Posted 4 years ago
