This is actually my second one, my first having been stolen a while back. This is one of the nicest low cost fountain pens I know of. It writes beautifully, very smoothly, and the barrel is built strong enough that you rarely need worry for any damage.
I dunno if I've mentioned it here before or not, but I have a fascination with pens. Of special interest are fountain pens and dip pens, but I enjoy pens of all types, and always like finding new ink types and colors, as well.
I think I have around 60 random "cheap" pens, ball points, roller balls, etc, including just about every color and style you can imagine. I also have about a half a dozen dip pens, and a couple of fountain pens.
[Update]: My guess of "around 60" seems to be a bit off. The actual count is 116. ;-)
