This is a thread about the pen and ink we're currently using (paper too, if you'd like!).

  • It doesn't have to be a fountain pen; quill, dip, ballpoint, roller ball, gel and variants are all welcome.
  • You can link to an image (keep it to about 400 x 400 or the equivalent in pixels) if you'd like
  • See the FAQ: Image Size Guidelines.

This is my current pen for drafts and notes; it's a gift from a dear friend, who calls it a frankenpen because she built it out of two similar pens.

It's an inexpensive fountain pen from the Dutch department store known as Hema. That's with an a; I misspelled it on the image.

I love it. It fits in a pocket or notebook, it's smooth, and utterly reliable.
