What's your grail pen?
more_vert
Admittedly, compared to most of the people within the writing community I am relatively inexperienced in my knowledge with the pens that are available on the market.
I only started looking into fountain pen after several causal chats with the members of Writing team at Massdrop. It's too easy to be infatuated by the passion of the people working around you, and before I realized it, I've already gotten quite a few fountain pens as well as numerous bottles of ink in all sorts of different shades.
Recently, Edelberg (http://edelberg.swiss/) caught my attention. And I've been lusting over the EB-1023 ever since.

I will eschew mentioning a typical "price is the product" pen which does nothing special except impress the easily impressed. For a great pen pick a great nib. Sailor and Aurora come to mind. If you really want to impress, write something well with a fountain pen and don't settle for using your pen as an ornament. Better still, write something good.

Currently, my grail pen is the Pilot Metropolitan. However, the LAMY 2000 is a great pen to last a lifetime. It costs $162, but is worth the price. It is made out of black fiberglass and brushed stainless steel, which is known as Makrolon, which ensures the sturdiness of the pen. It has a 14K gold nib, coated in platinum, and is extra fine.

Pilot Vanishing Point Raden Stripes is soooo expensive but it really is beautiful. Another would be the vintage Namiki Vanishing Point with facets... That one is really cool.

I love my Vanishing Point Crossed Lines, it's a very understated look and I agree with the fact that it's very useful. I own a variety of FPs but I keep coming back to this one. I had spoken to a pen store owner and they had lamented that the price likely will continue to go up because of the import taxes on the Raden material.

That's good to know... or not haha. I can see myself justify the price right now because of knowing that it will be more expensive later and that's not good for my bottom line! ;)

I'm stunned by the Nakaya Decopad and Cigar styles. Actually it's the lacquering that gets me. Two examples.....
