Fountain pens

I am a fan of fountain pens.  Here is a nice video on some of the common misconceptions surrounding them.

Clearly, I am, because I think this is neat.

Jinhao 450 White Fountain Pen with Golden Clip

I tacked this pen onto a recent Amazon order.  It was only $5 and I decided to take a shot.  The pen is made in China and is actually shipped from there when ordered thru Amazon.  It arrived within 14 days of order.  It is nice and writes very smoothly, with a nice nib and easy stroke.  There is no dragging or scratching.  The pen looks nice and is only betrayed by its cheap and thin clip.  I suspect the clip will break sooner or later.  This is a nice fountain pen to carry around without worrying that you’ll lose it.  I am using Aurora Blue ink in it, which it handles very well.

Pelikan M205 Highlighter ink

Filed under: Fountain Pens — dknights @ 8:55 am

While in Chicago, I picked up a bottle of this ink.  I was unaware of it before.  I was a little skeptical of it, but for $15 I thought I’d give it a try.  I loaded it up in my Monteverde rollerball and to my surprise, it works really well.  I think I’ll keep this ink loaded up for use as a highlighter, since I use one from time to time.

I agree with this blogger.

Thought, now there is an app for that, too.

Aurora Blue.  Made in Italy, the ink has a slight purple cast.  Hardly noticeable, especially if you are writing with a fine nibbed pen.  I use it in my Namiki Falcon and the combo is nearly perfect.  For quick note-taking, they can’t be beat, though for longer writing assignments, the Montblanc is still my go to pen.
