There is nothing like a fountain pen to make the simple, everyday act of writing into a meaningful experience. Whether it's your grocery list or a love letter a unique fountain pen makes you feel
The first fountain pen to appear in written record was built in 953 BC for a Moroccan Caliph, who demanded only that his pen should: 1) Never stain his hands or clothes, and 2) Successfully deliver ink from reservoir to nib.
Add about 500,000 choices to that list, and you should have a pretty good idea of what the industry looks like now. The breadth of choice is truly phenomenal -- everything from the shape of the nib to the shade of ink can be tweaked to suit the writer’s preferences. There’s a fountain pen out there for every conceivable purpose, from filling out DMV paperwork to signing birthday cards.
The idea of wielding a fountain pen is intriguing, yet also kind of intimidating. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, want a basic rundown on fountain pen options, or simply feel a bit befuddled, carry on reading!
