    Any fountain pen users here?

    In a quest to improve my penmanship (Iím left handed) and reduce my heavy handed writing style, Iíve rediscovered fountain pens. Anytime Iíve needed anything typed or written out, Iíd try and use my computer to get it done. Thatís not always possible.

    My dad always used to write with a fountain pen and Iíd play with them when I was younger, but Iíd always make a mess.

    I bought a left handed Lamy fountain pen for about $40 and absolutely love it. My hand doesnít ache like it does with a ballpoint pen. Pilot and Pentel gel pens are awesome, but thereís nothing like a great fountain pen!

    Like audio and other hobbies, I go in/out of interest in dealing with the hassle and pleasure of a fountain pen. I have several, but as I started flying more and concerned with leaks, I migrated to a Montblanc roller ball for most of my hand note taking. That said, I do appreciate the beauty, craftsmanship, and pleasure of a fountain pen.

    It never occurred to me until doing a little research lately, leaking pens is a real concern when flying. What a mess they could create.

    Pilot Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen. Sits in your pocket with the (retracted) nib pointing up, so much less issue with leaks. I have several of them.
