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: Buying both. . .

Have you ever tried the vintage Pelikan M150 from ~1950s? I hear they are wonderful writers, but are hella expensive! :P

I want one of those M600s -- I think that would be the perfect size for my hands. Man, what I'd do with a few hundred bucks to spare. :)
