The Last Pen You Will Ever Have to Buy

Updated on September 21, 2011

Fountain Pen


The Last Pen You Will Ever Have to Buy

I can’t speak for anyone else but it is the simple things in life that make me happy. Unlike my peers I was required to write with a calligraphy pen/fountain pen as I grew up. I loved my pen and I enjoyed calligraphy as it gave me time to think before I wrote.

It wasn’t until middle school when my parents divorced that I was introduced to the ball point pen and I hated it. Well not literally hated it but I preferred my foundation pen. The ball point pen was crude and now matter what type of ball point pen my Mother bought me, I wasn’t happy without my calligraphy pen.

But as the years went by I adapted and mottled through with the ball point pen. Until recently I had not even seen fountain pens back on the market and the ones I saw were so unreasonably priced for the product. But I came across a fountain pen that was exceptionally reasonably priced and it had a life time guarantee. I like life time guarantees and I have had this pen now for years so I feel really secure in recommending it to you.

With the exception of buying the refills which cost under $5 I haven’t needed another pen since.

For me personally a nice fountain pen that is exceptionally reliable makes me happy and I am hoping it will make you happy as well.

      Hi Samehada,

      What an excellent question? The answer is it depends on how much writing I do but in general they usually last me about 6 months. But the refills are 4 to a pack and they are under $5 USD so when I buy the pen I always buy the pen refills in advance. I recently went 6 months without my pen and I missed it terribly. I have it back now and I am so glad.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Your calligraphy will come back to you and you will love your pen and your penmanship with your new fountain pen.
