I enjoy using a fountain pen although it's getting harder at work with computers taking over and offices going paperless but I'm making a point now of using one for making notes wherever possible as my handwriting tends to be better with a fountain pen compared to a ball point.
I've a fairly random mix of pens, my favourite pen (because it was a gift from my wife) is a Cross Apogee Sable Herringbone and I've also got a Waterman Executive (stainless steel), my late Father's old (discoloured) Jade Green Parker Duofold Streamline (I think 1930s era - a very smooth writer), 3 Black Parker 45 CTs and a Black 45 Classic (all relics from my schooldays in the 70s), two Parker Falcon 50s (Flighter and Matte Brown) - I love the idea and looks of the integral nib, a Daniel Hechter and my latest acquisition, a 4th quarter in 1950 Parker "51" Aero-metric, Black with a Custom cap, which I got to match my Father's "51" ball point, and which writes beautifully.
I'm currently keeping my eye open for an early Parker 61 as I'm intrigued by the capillary filler.
I came across this site a few weeks ago and I'm now having great fun trawling through all the threads.
