cocohoney posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHi, I am completely new here, please let me know if I have not posted in the right place. I would like to buy my husband a pen for an anniversary present. He does a lot of writing in his job (doctor) and usually uses basic fountain pens from WHSmith which irritate him as the plastic threads wear. He also gets aching fingers as his hand slips down the grip. I have around £50 to spend. I have been trying to work my way through reviews online, and I reckon I need to look for a pen with a metal body but not a metal grip. The choices I have come up with are a Tombow Havanna (my top choice), a Sheaffer Sagaris, or a Parker Sonnet. I would be grateful for some advice- I can't seem to find out for sure if the threads on these are metal, or if the grip is any grippier (apart from the Tombow which I know is metal with a rubber grip). Also any other suggestions that fit with his needs, or what people think of the pens I have listed would be great. Many thanks x
