How do you choose your next pen?
January 28, 2012 § 1 Comment
Buying a pen, particularly a fountain pen, can be a very personal experience. The price, the style, the nib and even the presentation can be a determining factor. At PenFountain, we are currently experiencing the Rolls Royce for a Mini price scenarios on the retail front. A £5.00 pen in a velvet lined cardboard veneered case so that it the looks the business (but it’s a lie!).
For fountain pen users, without a doubt there are some fine ‘gems’ to be found below £10 – without the presentation case but, for collectors, these are often the little extras for selection from a pot of pens on the desk. When it comes to buying the more serious pens, is it hearts vs. heads on price and appearance or is it all in the brand?
We are conducting a short poll – please feel free to complete the poll and comment.
