Upgrade Your Fountain Pen

Upgrade Your Fountain Pen

There are few things in life that truly surpass the joy of writing with a fountain pen. The feel of the nib as it glides across the page. The way the pen itself makes you slow down and consider your words more carefully. More than any other tool, it is a trusted friend that can accompany you for years, if not a lifetime. If you’re already a fountain pen fan, then you may think it’s time to upgrade your fountain pen. Both aesthetically, and in terms of usability, there is huge variety out there, with something for every taste, style and budget. But watch out, some additions can be costly.

Go For Gold

Parker Duofold 'Craft of Travelling' Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Gold is a precious metal valued throughout the world, but never so much as in the nib of a fountain pen. It is durable enough to last a lifetime, but also soft enough to quickly adapt to your unique writing style. A perfect pen upgrade for the budding writer.

Clean and Clear

Modern and lightweight, this perfectly formed marvel is straight from a Wes Anderson film. Keep one in every bag for notes on the go.

    87% of 100

The innovative fibreglass body keeps down weight and is finished with a sleek brushed texture, while the tapered profile produces an exceptionally comfortable feel. Like all the finest fountain pens, this one features a platinum-plated solid 14k gold nib.


Wild Lines

Writing of the words

All nibs aren’t created equal, and there are plenty of unusual choices that can add some extra flair to your penmanship. If you’re a fan of a funky line, or find that a traditional fountain pen nib doesn’t seem to work for you, keep an eye out for the following:

  • Stub: cut flat across the top, this broad nib creates greater variance between vertical and horizontal lines. It’s no effort calligraphy!
  • Oblique: cut at an angle, which can help you to make proper contact with the paper if you’ve tried and failed with fountain pens in the past. A reverse oblique is perfect for lefties.
  • Music: Extra-flexible, this nib is designed for jotting sheet music, but some people prefer it for regular note taking as well.

    LAMY AL-star Ocean Blue Fountain Pen

Upgrade to your perfect line. One of the world’s most popular pens, it can come with a 1.1mm stub nib, but you can add a 1.5mm or 1.9mm if you prefer.

    Parker Sonnet Black Gold Trim Fountain Pen
