Is it safe to carry a fountain pen in your pants pocket? I wear cargo pants and like to carry a pen and notebook in my cargo pocket, but I'm worried that the pen will leak. The pen's that I'd carry would either be the Platinum Preppy, or the Pilot 78G. I'm not using an eye dropper conversion, just using cartridges and converters. They seem pretty secure, but I'd hate to ruin a pair of pants.
Mister5 posted a topic in SheafferI'm thinking about getting a Tuckaway out of sheer practicality. I'd like a pen I can put in my pants pocket, and it looks like the Tucky was designed to do handle this. I don't mind using and abusing pens, which explains the almost-ruination of a Vacumatic last week. I'm also a fan of the Triumph nib which I think the tuckaway had in later models. I was wondering if anyone knew how big the section was on the Tuckaways? I have a Sentinel Snorkel (I think they were calling this the "thin model") and while I love the nib, I don't like the thickness, I wish it were larger. It doesn't have to have a massive section, just bigger. Same for the Imperial IV and Imperial II Deluxe - just a little too thin (though I rather like the Imperial II Deluxe as a writer.) Also how well does it hold up to just putting it in your pocket and walking around all day? Will I end up opening it up after walking to work, only to find my hands covered in ink?
