So I've finally saved up enough money to get a new fountain pen, and I've narrowed down my choice to one of two pens: The Parker Duofold and the Parker Premier. Both of the pens appeal to me equally, though on different levels. The duofold is to me a nice classic timeless design, whereas the Premier is a very masculine and well-built modern design. Furthermore, I like the light-weight duofold for good ergonomics, but also like the Premier for a durable finish.
So I really am stumped, so I just wanted to get some opinions from you guys.
I think you summed it up well. It really comes down to personal preference. Personally I'd go for the Duofold as I've liked them since I was a kid but have never actually owned one.
