Is luxury writing the exclusive playground of fountain pens?
Unfortunately, I am legible only with ball point pens, but I do enjoy the feel of a premium pen in my hand.
Some of my pens:
Montblanc Slimline Nobelesse
Cross Century Chrome/10K Gold/14K Gold
Lamy Safari Vista
Fisher Space Pen CH4
For those who like ball points, I urge you to try a Fisher Space Pen. This has to be the best I have ever used in terms of ink flow and smoothness!
The Lamy is cheap! $20, and smooth and precise.
The Montblanc is a mint pen from the late 70s, and it is made of gold, so I am very reluctant to carry it on a daily basis. Makes me feel like a (nervous) million bucks.
The Cross Century is an icon. Even non-pen people recognise/appreciate it. The poor bit is that the writing sucks compared to the above, which is why they don't see the outside of my pen case very often.
What are your thoughts? What am I missing in my collection?
