International Fountain Pen Day 2013   1 comment

International Fountain Pen Day
November 1, 2013 is Interational Fountain Pen day. This is observed the first Friday in November. As followers of this blog know, I am an avid fountain pen collector and user. I like to think of all my pens as users, whether they are brand new, or over a century old.

Fountain pens offer an elegance to writing, and a bit of ritual. Given modern companies that produce a rainbow of inks and the ability to choose your nib, letters on the page are infinitely customizable. I find the writing to be smoother, and my handwriting simply looks better.

Never try a fountain pen? You can dip your toes in with a Pilot Varsity or Bic disposable fountain pen. Or, if you want to get the full experience, I would recommend a Lamy Safari. This is a great pen that can take cartridges, or, with a convertor, fill from a bottle. I’m almost certain you will fall in love with fountain pens.

  1. Ran across your blog today. Love your post and your blog. Interesting articles about fountain pens. I find it interesting that an IT guy likes pens. You should be all digital :) If you ever need more pens, which we all do, here is a 10% coupon for http://www.penchalet.com – enter MRGUILT in the shopping cart. Have a good day.
