pens we like

Pilot fountain pen

fountain pens are weird. there was a time when this was the only kind of pen there was. it made for the stuff of jokes. and it spawned the pocket protector. both problems (is a joke a problem?) were fueled by the fact that these pens leaked. and why ball point pens took their place in the day to day. there is lots of like about drawing with a NiB instead of a ball. one of those is the before mentioned leaky ability.

this pen comes in BLACK or CLEAR. it costs about $6.

one thing to LOVE about NiB pens is that you can fill them with different colors of ink. because the Pilot uses a standard cartridge you have your choice of thousands of different colors, shades, and properties. you do not have to settle for Black Hole Black or Ordinary Blue.
