Several posts on the "Things Forgotten" thread prompted me to write this one.
How many people here use fountain pens? For years, I used the cheap Sheaffer's, but I finally decided that I wanted a decent pen, without a lot of bells and whistles. At a business supply store (pre-Staples and Office Depot), I lucked out with a salesperson who hooked me up with a Lamy Safari. Great pen, has a grip that makes it easy to hold at the correct angle (if you're right handed), and has a special cartridge for use with bottled ink.
