We had a nice thread the other day, unfortunately I was very, very late to the party.
What are you writing with currently?
What are your daily writers?
What are your specialty writers?
Lamy 2000 EF daily driver.
Also have Lamy Safari in F, Lamy Studio in EF, Platinum Cool in M, TWSBI Diamond 580 AL in B, Sheaffer 100 in F, Faber Castell Basic Carbon in EF, Jinhao X450 in F, Pilot Metropolitan in M. Have a few more Jinhao's in the mail.
It's a $2 space pen. It writes against walls, on wet paper, on glass, upside down, in the freezing cold, in the blistering hot, it doesn't leak, and it doesn't smudge.
Anything more is pretentious bullshit, because this is literally about as functional as a pen can get and it's only 2 bucks.

I used to be a member of FPN, but it seems like that place is ran by noodler's ink for the sole purpose of advertising it. You literally get banned for having an opinion there.
writing using this filled me with joy
Faber Castell Ambition Rhombus
Pentel P205 mechanical Pencil
Seriously wonderful pencil
Bow down to the one true king of mechanical pencils.
Oh, but it makes a difference ...and it's also a fetish...
>What the fuck did you just say to me you little bitch? Calm down you fucking faggot, stick a pen up your ass.
>Hey, calm down friend. If these kind of threads disinterest you there's always the filter or the Hide button.
I went out one day to buy a Lamy. Tried the Safari and the more expensive, metal version of the same pen. They both felt and looked like cheap crap. The fins were really scratchy and the build quality seemed really underwhelming to me. They also feel too blocky, I guess I don't like the design. While I was in the store, I also tried a few Online pens. They were a lot cheeper then Lamy, but looked and felt so much better, I didn't get the impression they were as cheap as Lamy. Needless to say, I didn't buy one.
I guess I'm wondering why there are so many people swearing by Lamy pens when they look and feel too cheap for the price, and also use proprietary cartridges.
Pen posts are the YLYL threads of /g/.
>stuff you write with
You people blow ordinary stuff way out of fucking proportions. Sure, there are differences between a 1$ and a 500$ pen, but for fuck's sake, what kind of autism-level are you guys capable of?
i like how 80% of FP users have the shittiest hand writing. "this is the smoothest nib for my toddler scribbles!". They need to get a grip on their hobby, they seem more like fedora tipping old men latching on to nostalgia that they never went through.
It all depends on your personal preference. In the grand scheme of things, a $30 pen isn't all that expensive when it comes down to it. My Lamy 2000 came out to $230 CAD, so that $30 Lamy Safari is relatively inexpensive. I happen to like the Lamy Safari and the grip section because it suits my writing style and the way I hold my pen. I don't have any experience with the cartridges because I use a converter with bottled ink. The writing experience depends on more than just the body. Nib size, ink, and paper play a big role in the writing experience. Right now I use my Lamy 2000 that has a gold EF nib, Lamy Turquoise and 32lb HP LaserJet paper. If I use a regular paper it's not going to feel the same compared to the smooth writing experience I get from the heavier paper.
I use three fountain pens with three different inks and nib sizes to write and take notes.
These are basically my daily writers, I use them constantly to take notes and do paperwork while at work.
here are my special edition wooden writing sticks
they are better than most fountain pens in value and in writting quality. (coming from a platinum 3776).
Fountain pens are only good for collectors and calligraphers, unless you like to show off. I've been there and sold 75% of my collection when i saw that there was basically no improvement once you go high end, even so cheaper pens will do you just as good without all the stupid frills.
This little guy has been my daily for 3 years now.
Last year of high school and two years of uni so far.
I think it's called UniBall Kuru Toga. But I dont remember bc the shit rubbed off
Admittedly, I haven't tried those other ones. I mean compared to a standard wooden pencil or a Bic.
A joy to write with I think. How much are the others? Where I live I can get a 5 pack of Mitsubishi pencils for $1.50
Most ive spent on a pen is $15 for a pilot metro, which is probably the best thing i'm gonna get.
I'm interested in them, and want more, definitely, but then i remember they're just fucking pens.
Paper though, I get good stuff. I mainly buy Rhodia for the journals i keep and whatever ink i feel like using.
>Stop liking what I don't like!
All these faggots pretending that anyone that writes with a fountain pen must be some fedora memester or some shit like that.
>Little do they know that in many country you HAVE to own a fountain pen while attending elementary and middle school, so you end up only liking those types of pens over ballpoint garbage.
How can someone possible like something that you don't like, right?
Got one of these and I love it.
Kind of want to go for a more expensive fountain pen sometime.
Nigga, I'm from Switzerland. Every country is third world compared to mine.
What I'm saying is that /g/ is made up of tons of people that own $200 mechanical keyboards, jerk off to their old Thinkpads and use $150 mice and you are bitching about some fucking pens?
You must be out of your mind to bitch about something like this when most of you own way more bullshit than simple fountain pens.
Still the same as last time.
The ballpoint is a MaxMadCo, noone seems to guess that one.
