I was surfing around, looking for a nice Parker fountain pen for a reasonable price (I really love Sonnets and Duofolds too, but they are too expensive for my budget unfortunately). I ended up finding I found two IM's which I really like and I'm debating a bit over whether choosing this one in case I got a new Parker fountain pen (I have 45 and Jotter pencils and Jotter pens so far). (Also looked at Vector and Premier, but I like IM the best so far.) I'm curious for your opinions about it, like how practical and comfortable it is, if it's good for longer writing and maybe some not-so-professional calligraphic writing (for example for Christmas greetings) and so on. I attach two pictures of the ones I like the most so far The blue one is a Parker IM metal fountain pen and the green one says Parker IM Premium Vacumatic Emerald Pearl CT.
Hello, Just wondering if anyone could tell me their personal preference for what to carry their fountain pens in? I'm looking for my boyfriend who uses fountain pens every day. He takes them to use at work and I'm thinking having some kind of carrying case would be a nice gift. I've looked at different types but I thought it best to ask those who use them what is the most practical or preferred way. Thanks for any input you have
You know that feeling you get when you get a new pen, write with it, and cringe a little? That toothiness you thought would not exist, the flow not being as good as you see in reviews. The pen, in contradiction of the praise it receives, just does not pay off. But then you realize that the pen gets so much better over time, so much so you can't stop writing with it. That was me when I first received my Pilot Custom Heritage 912, asking myself: "Did I really pay more than $150 for this?" Now, it's so smooth and flows so heavenly that I get carried away just writing the alphabet with it. Have you guys experienced this with any of your pens and never looked back? I'd like to know what it was like break in the sole of the nib.
