"Fancy dip pen" ? In case you are including the above Sailor as such, this is a fountain pen with which I will use with ink cartridges, like every other fountain pen I have. Such pens are often sold with a bottle of ink, but I typically opt for cartridges.....Each of the fountain pen I own were purchased for and intended to be used every day, however, many ended up in my desk top pen box because they were not good writers. I have several brands and have found, without fail, the Sailor pens write beautifully. Accordingly, I buy only Sailors now.

As to when to use such a pen, I use them exclusively regardless of what meeting I am or whom I am with or what I am doing. I don't get the presumed pretentiousness that people seem to attach to the use of a fountain pen. Perhaps, if one always carried and used a $5,000 gold, sculpted, hand painted Omas I'd could buy into the premise, but I find the above Sailor as relatively pedestrian.

Regardless, I should get delivered today, I am so looking forward to it! nod[1].gif

I have a sample of Invasion Barbare that I really like. Hated Chypre Palatin from them though. Never tried Frapin. Did you try any other Frapin's while you were there? Maybe L'humaniste or Speakeasy?

Yeah when I first tried IB I hated it. Then today I had to walk out with it.

The Frapin is great, boozy fruit notes and spice, leather, etc. I also tried 1697 by Frapin which is like a heavier version of 1270. I have tried l'humaniste, it's a nice citrus but nothing I would necessarily jump to have in my collection.
