Which pen does the trick for you?2009/08/24
If you had to get it down to just one pen that makes the most of your writing as well as makes you happy to use, which one would it be?
I was thinking about that as I made a journal entry a few minutes ago. For the umpteenth time the same pen was not only very kind to my handwriting but it was fun to use and very easy on my hand. It really does top anything else I own, well, at least until the Waterman Carene stub arrives but the jury’s out on that one for now.
Until then, my black and rhodium Sailor 1911 fine nib does the trick for me regardless of the ink. I’ve used J. Herbin Vert Empire and Bleu Pervenche, Diamine Teal and Steel Blue, and Stipula Moss Green. Not a stinker in the bunch. The 1911 has the whole package and never disappoints me.
Do you have a pen that works that well for you? I hope you do because it is exactly what makes using a fountain pen superior to any other writing instrument. Yes, I’m biased but you already knew that.
Hey, do post the name of your favorite pen in the comments. Maybe someone else would find your fave to be the perfect pen, too.
