Precision writing instruments have been produced over time in many countries, currently the Japanese have dominated this field, with the most accurate utensils. Mont Blanc is producing the most beautiful devices. They are not dependable for everyday usage. The most recent meisterstuck pen broke apart under the stress of writing 10 pages in my hand. I will test their service center next, because that pen felt so fantastic in my hand. With the demise of my meisterstuck I have chosen as simple American sonnet manufactured by Parker .

Well, I was going to recommend a platinum preppy in extra fine because it matches everything else, even the writing on thermal/receipt paper if you get the right ink for it, but you might as well just go with any ball point pen ever made if that's the case.

Hello /pen/

This is my first time posting here, as well as my first written piece, and I'm really invested in it. I began working on this a few weeks ago, and I would just like some opinions on what I could do to make it better, what I could add etc. Just general thoughts. I've only written 8 pages so far, and I've hardly revised it.

I glanced at the "Fall of Sazra." The Formatting is better than the other two books . As for the story I dig it it's nice . However don't add letters to the words . Daaaaad as an example. Let the narrator, and letters when the audiobook is released.

You should continue the Dreadnought story. Your style reminds me of Andre Norton. Less conversation and more explanation is a good idea.

The Platinum B776 is a lovely blue translucent pen with gold trim bands & clip. The tip looks giant, but it is a very fine line. There is no mistaking every letter and every error. Those errors make for our unique hand writing style. That "style" is so much easier to hid when using a medium tipped nib. So in a culture that values small, I was surprised to find a big nib with a razor fine line. It is excellent. Forcing proper form by the utensil. It is impossible to hold the pen so close to the tip Thus enforcing the proper triangular grip that is what teachers all over the world insist on in classrooms.

This pen in a word is excellence. The Platinum company did it right with the B776 From the twist off cap ensuring no pocket leaks, to the satisfying pressurized spurt of ink when the cartridge is depressed into the nib. The ball bearing in the bladder keeps ink flow at a constant sure pace. I have not found any errors on this pen. The paper lacks pen errors. There are no ink spots or smears. It's a good pen to ink a final draft written essay. Only your own errors will sow up in your writing.

I'm proud to start this new page off with my new pen from Ohto. It's a black lacquer pen with an Iridium point nib. There's a satisfying click when taking off the cap. Pressing down the cap gives another click. Ensuring that the cap is secure, so your pocket won't become stain inadvertently by ink from your Proud Ohto.

That same cap balances easily on the end of the pens barrel shaped cylendar. Unlike the Dude, the Proud has a fine tip, with a smooth cylendar shape. The nib is rubber, down to the iridium pointed nib tip. There is a difficult to remove, but easy to identify sticker on the cap. Just in case the gold embossing Made in "Japan; Proud Ohto" was not visible. There is a bright white Ricker with the stock number and nomenclature. Oh and a barcode too. If I were a merchant, then this is the pen for me. There's no mistaking it. The Proud Ohto is elegant, and economical. The other name, just in case, is; FF-150-BK (Black) [1500]. Just teasing, it is a wonderful pen. Make sure to check the nib when you buy it, but do buy it. This is the great pen to begin your fountain pen journey with.

It's the Schneider One Hybrid N.

Well done, it is hard to believe this pen only cost 79 pesos. That's about $1.50 and it rolls well. This pen has a great ball, and the ink is generously applied when you write. The cap fits on top when writing without popping off. It's a bit overdone on the grip. There's no way to lose your grip on the serrated rubber top.

My blue pen has black ink, and my lack writes in blue. It's my newest fine tip fountain pen by Shaffer. It's balance is superb. The offset color is my own idea. Since Mt collection includes a pitch black medium point pen with royal blue ink. This fantastic royal blue pen should be filled with jet black ink. It's my new favorite pen. The tip is gold and the cap is decked out with a crown and a generous gold striped clip.

For men with big hands, the cap effortlessly balances on top of the shaft without any feeling or fear of loss. Unlike some pens that demand a place at the table for the cap as well. It's swell, since most pens these days have an effeminate flare. This one is both beautiful and manly.

Wow, you got the get. Anyway, try changing your pen. You can see the difference in the pen reviews. Some pens do a much better job than others. If the pen fits your hand, and the ball point, or the nib is right for you, then your penmanship may improve, unless you have a learning disability.

Well Bic is the big name in pens. It could be said that more students use Bic than any other pen. That is because of the likely geodesic ball in the in the point of this Bic Super EZ 0.7 mm pen. It looks like a solid, decent pen. The ball doesn't roll well, but the ink delivery is adequate. The ball actually makes an occasional scraping noise on its housing. That could be caused by the ball tat is not completely round. I also feel a vibration in the shaft when I write fast. This is a dismal pen. I feel so sorry for any student that is in the hard situation of having to use it.

Classy meets functional with Waterman Expert Gt fountain pen. I've come to realize the gold in the Expert Gt is 23k. The additional Lustre and classy flair from the fine gold makes it stand out next to normal mere mortal pens with only 18k gold. Of course that means this pen can't be tossed in the drawer fast with the other writing utensils. Gold this soft requires special treatment. That shouldn't be a problem. Since the comfort provided by the 23k gold nib will keep your hand happy enough that the extra care required will become a pleasure. Polishing this French pen is pure excitement. The medium tip that is standard to the Expert Gt is metered well and the ink flows out just right.

My Friend has a set of pens that came in a fancy plastic pack. They are colorful packing a lot of vibrancy into an inexpensive set. Artsy, the ballpoint has a medium resistance and the ink is clear. The pen scratches across the paper with a bit less resistance than a number two pencil. Before the end of the page the Faber Castle CX Colour has impressed me. Since you receive ten in a pack with plenty of colors to choose from. It is an excellent buy for an elementary art class. It's not the pen for writing an essay, but good enough to write a note to leave on the ref.

It's got to have something to do with the weather. My new Shaffer silver and gold pen is also a miserable mess. I'll try reviewing both the Parker and the Shaffer again tomorrow. Giving this messy refillable another chance to make me happy tomorrow. Today ust might not be the day to make remarks on the marks made by either pen.

While I was picking up the R2-D2 fountain pen. I nabbed a Shaffer Gell Ink Pen. It's both economical and nice. The black plastic has a lacquer like finish making this under $10 gel ink pen look like an expensive pen. The tip diameter is not written on the package. So I removed the insert and fount it is 0.7 mm. The ink flows so freely that I thought it was a 1. 0 mm head. The rollerball comes with a tiny plastic cap. So you know nobody has been testing or abusing the ball. Your load is full when you begin your journey down the page. The big boy feel of this pen makes feel at home and it stands in good company.

May the force be with you. The whole galaxy ust be going fountain pen crazy. I've just snagged a medium tip fountain pen from Shaffer. It's a nice enough pen on it's own. Just a simple plastic tube w/cartridges that are disposable and sold separately.

I looked a little closer and fo my utter glee, I discovered its an Star Wars Yoda pen. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant, Shaffer could not have selected a better Star Wars action character to represent the fountain pen user community.

The pea green, dark and light brown both, or perhaps tan and brown pen comes complete with spiritual wisdom and guidance from Master Yoda himself.
