just seems like a waste imo, also how often do you write vs type

not when you spend $500 on one.

right now im writing with a waterman that I bought seriously 18 years ago. Never lost a nice pen yet. Ive lost hundreds of cheapos though

I'm using the same MontBlanc ballpoint that I got as a graduation gift from law school in '89 and I love it.

keep the vintage pen then,

i seriously hope you dont pay full price for a $500 pen, for $500 you can have an ipad2 you can take notes on. Also who cares about what you write with? It just doesnt matter, get one of those feather pens to dip in ink same difference. Uber waster imo!

Or if in NYC walk into Fountain Pen Hospital. Repeat the last step.

Ive paid more.....tough to do, but I wanted the pen.

I use a wonderful pen for the same reason I wear john lobbs and spent my savings on an Isaia suit. This argument that it just doesnt matter is laughable on a forum filled with people who regularly spend what some make in a week on shoes.

Theres a difference. If you cant tell, then a high end fountain pen isnt for you....stick with yer bic or tech gear.

If you want to be a real baller, get an Hermes pen...

Hermes Man, just bite your finger and sign in blood. You're alpha as $@#! and that would just prove beyond a shadow of a doubt.

So true, I've never lost one of my better pens.

If you want real baller, go with a Nakaya Maki-e. Hand-made and amazing finishing.

As a writing instrument, you can't go wrong with a Pelikan or a Lamy.

My choice is a gifted Maroon & Gold Mont Blanc MeisterStuck.

For one, iPads are quite horrible for taking notes. You'll have better luck with an actual keyboard. For another, you're on Style Forum, and you're wondering why people care about assorted accoutrements that they perceive as stylish? Stop trolling.

MB pens are shitty. Just thin resin that will break when dropped...nothing special. My favorite pen is my Montegrappa FP that I have on my desk. Writes smooth as silk. I also use a Krone FP every so often too...and I have a half a dozen Pellikan RBs and BPs that serve me well. But, anyone who's into pens eventually will have a MB. but they usually start out with them and move up to real quality from there.

They do not break when dropped. I have three of them from the eighties, used everday, dropped every week.

Look and work like new.

Signing with a quill pen is pretty baller.



Equally baller is pricking your finger and signing with blood.
