Updated on April 8, 2014

The Crystal Clear Fountain Pen Collections

Some go for the vintage fountain pen that have flexible nibs, and some will go for modern fountain pen with contemporary design. There are a few fountain pen that are called demonstrator, or a see trough fountain pen. The perfect give for somebody you love, or just to add as a collection of your own.

Everybody love fountain pen. They write smoothly with minimal pressure. The nibs are designed for all the needs for a quality penmanship work. They got extra fine, fine, medium, italic, cursive italic, oblique, left handed and so much more.

Here I compile a list of fountain pens that have see through / transparent bodies that I think looks elegant and attractive.

Some people claimed that they have improve their handwriting when starting to write with a fountain pen. Pick one yourself and learn how to use a fountain pen through various sources on the web.

Hi. It is my dream to have a collections of fountain pens, especially the one the demonstrator design. For that I have come up with this list, sort of my personal wishlist or target. Fell free to give suggestions if you find any fountain pen that you think suitable for the list.

What is a fountain pen?

Its predecessor is the dip pen, where you dip the tip of your pen into ink bottle and write. Then comes fountain pen with internal reservoir of ink and deposits it on paper via a combination of gravity and capillary action. As a result, it requires little or no pressure to write.

      @erredierre: Same as mine, the scratches become more and more visible from time to time. Initially I tried polishing them with some soft microfiber cloth, works for removing dirt, but not scratches. I have no idea if there is any products out there that can do the job.
