I've never had luck with fountain pens. I like the idea of them. Especially the kind you can refill from an ink bottle. My grandfather had one with one of the those little levers on the side. The rubber bladder inside was probable all rotted when I saw in that pen in the 1970's.
But they don't make those anymore. Right? Or you can get a nice vintage Parker or something for big bucks. [and I blame marko, partly, for the re-interest or spark I am having to older writing techniques...]
They still make nifty pens, but they are a bit spendy.
Well, what about this? A Lami. Extra fine tips (my preference in all things writing) available. But still, you can't get those refillable from the ink bottle doohickeys on a pen.
Then I learned about these little conversion cartridges.
That and Noodler's... well, this is fun! The writing is very smooth. A joy, compared to clunky ball point. And carbon paper forms get rarer and rarer these days... good.
The imcompetence of the MSM - It's one thing to be biased. It's a very different thing to be so incompetent in your bias that everyone sees you making the sausage: In the USSR's milita...
