It’s Fountain Pen Day!


Fountain Pen Day is a time for celebration, but also a time to appreciate my collection. Four years on, these pens remain favorites. Perhaps I am not as fickle as I thought. Do you have pens that remain in use despite acquiring new ones? Which are your favorites?



  1. Great collection! These are all such interesting writers.
    I have a 4-pen leather case and I select my four faves to carry in there. Currently:
    Parker “51”
    Lamy 2000
    and an Eversharp Skyline
    Interestingly – it’s the Skyline that is the best writer of the four.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • What a great group of pens!


  2. Oh, my. You do have some nice pens with outstanding nibs. 🙂


  3. Nice list! I have some consistent favorites, too. My TWSBI pens are always the top of my list (I especially love the feel of my 580 AL, and the EF nib on my Eco) and I can’t seem to get away from the workhorse Pilot Metros. I also love my Platinim Plaisirs. It seems that if I love a pen enough, I buy multiple of them. 🙂
