I have to say, being a part of the fountain pen world has been excellent, and an "accidental" discovery can turn into a gold mine.

For example, the Skilcraft Fountain Pen, in burgundy or blue. The burgundy nib, at least in my purchases, are a little more fine, than the blue. The blue, however, is a bit more of a "wet" writer.

You can get them on Amazon or via http://www.blind-mad...-black-ink.html

The burgundy comes with a ballpoint (I gave that to my wife, who loves a good ballpoint). I think the thin look gives it a little more of a business look.

I have not heard any negative reactions to this pen from comments on FB, so apparently the quality is pretty much standard.

I bought two blue ones last month.  Gave one to my wife and kept one for me.  I love it!  My wife has not said much about hers either way.

What refills does the ballpoint take?

I just ordered a universal converter.  Will let you know how it works.  As far as I can tell it uses universal cartridges.

Does this fountain pen work with a universal converter?  I was thinking of trying one, but I'd like to find a converter for it first.

Nice design, pretty cheap, and apparantly even a good pen. All that's missing is shipping to non-US addresses.

I've purchased quite a few of them. I've given several to coworkers. I need to find a steady source of cheap cartridge refills for them.
