Whether you plan on using a fountain pen to display to clients and visitors in an executive suite or simply want a fountain pen that lets you write notes quickly and neatly, there are a variety of choices to suit any intention. For more basic, everyday writing needs, there are many other types of pens available and make sure you keep plenty of fountain pen refills on hand to keep the ink flowing.
By analyzing your handwriting and writing style, it's easy to figure out what type of nib is right for you. Fine-pointed nibs are perfect for individuals with naturally neat, small handwriting, while bold nibs are better for people who write quickly and tend to have larger, sprawling handwriting. If you write with a lot of pressure, consider choosing a fountain pen with an iridium tip, which is made extra strong to resist breakage and fraying.
Fountain pens feature either cartridges, converters or cartridge-converter filling mechanisms to suit a variety of preferences. An ink cartridge can be disposed of when it's empty and replaced with another cartridge, while a converter uses suction to fill a fountain pen with ink from a bottle. A cartridge-converter fountain pen can use either method, while a disposable fountain pen is a perfect choice for lower-end models.
Fountain pens are available in a diverse selection of options with a range of different materials, colors and shapes to choose from, making it easy to pick a fountain pen that reflects your specific personality. Keep things simple and elegant with a fountain pen that has a slender profile in modern metals. Show off your executive status with fountain pens that boast jewelry-grade chromium accents and gleaming, polished wood finishes. Bring out your wild side with a fountain pen that has subtle animal prints.
