Ive been floating around reading things in this forum for a little while - fountain pens are my new obsession!
Thought I would complete the circle of life and offer some reviews of my own, starting with a nice cheap pen - the Pelikan Steno Fountain Pen
I just bought it because it was really cheap and I wanted another pen so I could have other colours ready on hand, and that sort of thing.
In summary - It looks great - I like the simple and professional feel. It's pretty light weight, the only real problem with it is that it is kind of leaky. Every time I recap and open the lid there seems to be some nib creep and some ink coming out of the join where the nib connects to the rest of the pen. Might be because the cap has such a firm snap to shut and open, but really its kind of messy.
Heres a writing sample and the rest of the review.
