What’s With the Fountain Pens?

It’s simple. My brain remembers material better when I hand write notes rather than typing them. My hands get very sore when writing, though, so… fountain pens, since you don’t apply pressure. It’s essentially painting ink on the page.

Yes, they can appear snobby. Yes, they’re (relatively) expensive. Nonetheless, they’re works of art, they write beautifully, and they help me do better work, and that’s good enough for me.

My current favorite is the TWSBI (pronounced TWIZ-bee) Diamond 580 filled with Caran D’Ache Hypnotic Turquoise ink.

Yes, I do still need to work on my handwriting.
