Present For Husband And I Know Nothing About Fountain Pens...

I'm sure he will be thrilled with your choice. Nothing wrong with the Townsend and it is as recognisable in public as a Montblanc because of its distinctive cap.

Mr Pen runs a great business with rapid delivery and excellent service - so that was a good choice too.

 

Now.............. about YOUR fountain pen .................... :)

Pens and paper everywhere, yet all our hearts did sink,

 

Pens and paper everywhere, but not a drop of ink.

You've definitely put considerable effort into finding just the right gift, and I'm sure he will love it.

And I hope you stick around the forums too!

Still thinking about that Sheaffer you posted above? That's a real beauty!

Ehhh.. What makes a Townsend from mrPen different from other Townsends??

 

I have a Townsend which is quite a good pen, just from my local shop...

It's arrived today and looks lovely, I'm very pleased with it! It does have metal threads so I've met that criteria, the cap posts really solidly (in fact I had trouble removing it again, worrying moment!), and a nice weight so I think I've met the criteria thanks to everyone's help.

 

It's in a nice gift box and the engraving on the lid is a lovely touch, I'm really looking forward to giving it to him!

 

Elizabeth, I am hooked and now want one myself, it will have to wait a couple of pay days now though...I am watching similar ones on ebay and there is always my friend in America if I can't find one like it here.

Glad to have you as part of the community! Best wishes on the gift and your future acquisitions ;)

Many great choices mentioned. I have pistion fillers, lever fillers, cartridge/convertors (C/C), aerometric fillers, etc. etc. I don't own nor have used the Lamy Studio, but I would recommend a Lamy Al-Star. I find it great to write for long periods of times and the nibs are nails, which would suit the multiple copy necessity. They are easy to uncap with one hand also, which might be handy for a doc. Go with the extra fine nib. With it's ability to take cartridges as well as the Z-24 converter you you can fill from a bottle. A small (30 mg.) bottle of Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Black ink (good water resistance,quick drying, and semi-permanancy) could easily be carried in a bag. Pelikan 4001 bottles are great to fill from. Well my 2 cents worth is expended.

+1 for the Pelikan M215. I have one with a Binderized EF nib, and it is one of my best writers. Never messes up, and is always great to hold and smooth as butter.

You may also want to consider a stainless steel Lamy Studio.

AGREED!!! For the 50$ price point you cant beat the quality!!! I have a Lamy Vista (clear demonstrator) in a med nib. This pen writes like some of the high end pens I have in my collection.
