    Default Any Fountain Pen Users?

    Just got a new Waterman Hemisphere today for Christmas. I have another Waterman that was given to me by my grandfather, although I'm not sure of the model.

    I believe Obie is the fountain pen guru in these parts. I asked for a fountain pen for Christmas, as well, but got a couple tubs of Cella. Which isn't a bad gift at all.

    Not bad at all What kind of pen did you ask for? I know they're not going to be as good, but my dad gets 12 packs from staples or something for about $15

    Though my fountain pen is a cheap noodlers, I have no complaints. I use it everyday and it's never out of my pocket.

    Before I got the one from my grandfather I used a $10 calligraphy pen from Micheal's. It's not the price tag at all, my friend. It's how you use it

    I've got no complaints with it. I love it and it works great, especially for the price. Sure I'd like a bit nicer pen but I probably wait for my commission to buy one.

    I used to have a bunch but sold them. Though I always carried one at work I seldom had use for it and when I finally needed to use it the ink had dried.In my college days I used them exclusively but that was a very long time ago. More trouble really than they were worth even though I still love writing with them and high altitude affects them negatively.

    I always thought the Waterman's especially the ideal nib was the best. Just the right combination of smoothness and scratchiness.

    I've been using Lamy Safari's at work. I have no complaints. They're cheap. No biggie if
    I misplace them, I use them daily, no skipping, smooth, nice ink flow with the fine nib.

    +1 on the Noodler's. I got a free one with their ink, it works fine as well.
