The Fountain Pen Reinvented--My New Favorite,
This review is from: Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pen, Black Ink, Single Pen (90015) (Office Product)
I am picky about my pens, and this is a great pen. I have always loved the feel of a fountain pen, but they do have their drawbacks. They are often poorly-balanced, heavy, too thick and the ink can get messy. The cost can be rather ridiculous too, as if part of the appeal ought to be that it's supposed to be a posh item. For these reasons I usually find myself using gel ink pens, which still write smoothly, feel great in your hand and are cheap enough to buy in bulk and stash in different places so one is always handy.
This pen is the best of both worlds--in your hand it feels just like a gel ink pen but it provides that wonderfully tactile writing experience that can only come from a fountain pen. Best of all, it doesn't leak or stain your fingers and papers. As far a I'm concerned this is a fantastic innovation on dear-but-retired writing tool, the fountain pen, which has effectively revived it as an everyday writing choice.
