Fountain Pen-Fi?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've been interested in fountain pens ever since I played with (and sadly, eventually broke) my grandpa's Sheaffer Imperial II when I was around 7 or 8 years old. 

 

Lately, I've been eyeing Sheaffer and Waterman (possibly even Parker and Rotring) for an affordable yet easy-to-write-with fountain pen. I'm newer to this than I am to hi-fi, so it's safe to say that my knowledge of what makes a good fountain pen "good" is mostly nonexistent. I'm probably going to be using it mostly for writing poetry/fiction, or just practicing my calligraphy.

 

I'll maybe have a budget of around 150 US dollars (not very much, I know), so would anyone care to recommend pens with good price-to-performance ratio? Thanks!

 

P.S.

I just noticed that hunting for fountain pens is a lot like looking for a new component for my headphone rig. Weird, huh?

 

P.P.S.

I'm aware that there's also an online forum for fountain pens (Fountain Pen Network, I think it was called?), but I'm more comfortable here on Head-Fi, and I'm curious as to whether anyone else here is into vintage pens :))

Cheers!

Weird. I must've missed that thread while searching for one on Fountain Pens >.<;;

 

Thanks!
