Fountain pens. [Updated]

Some of you might be aware that I'm something of a pen aficionado. Particularly fountain pens. I love 'em. I love the look, I love the style, and I love how smoothly they write. (You know, fountain pens? The things that evolved from quills? Like the little icon that most LiveJournal clients use? Yeah, that's the one. ;-)

I also love sharing my interest with others.

So, if you've ever had a desire to try out a nice fountain pen, now is a really good time. Levenger currently has two models on a *really* good sale. The first is the Levenger LS3, which normally runs for $50, and is currently on sale for $10. The second is the Parker Insignia Wave, which normally retails at $75, and is currently on sale for $20.

I personally own both of these pens, and can vouch for how good the quality is. I love 'em both. ;-)

So, if you've ever thought about trying out a quality fountain pen (and trust me, quality counts for a lot. . . those cheap little $5 pens you see at office supply stores are junk, and write like crap), this is the best shot I've seen.

Long live Fountain Pens! ;-)

[Update: For anyone interested, I posted a more thorough comparison of the pens in the comments here.]


Re: LS3 availability.

I have actually come to like the look of the yellow one better than the green one, myself (I have both).

Which is odd, 'cause I'm not normally much of a 'yellow' person, and when I ordered them, I prefered the green one. ;-)

Re: LS3 availability.

Hmmm... Now that you say that...

I think I will call and see if they have my order for the green one available to ship. If not, I will probably go yellow and see if it becomes an "acquired taste". :)

By and by, my dream pen is one of those $1000+ pens considered works of art. All I want to do is dip one and see if it actually writes. lol I know, I am crazy. It's like buying a Porsche Carrera GT and actually driving it. o_O
