I enjoyed this New York Times article on pens. I love finding the right pen. Was a Niji stylist user for years. Our Japanese friends may be on to something. Have to check it out and see if it has that magic feel my fingers crave.
Fountain pens come from a better time, perhaps even a more civilized time.
Reinsberg was the man who brought the first ballpoint pen to market, a fascinating story. The founder of the Reynolds Pen Co., he touted the ability of his pen to write under water.
Reinsberg was also a pilot and he and his crew made a harrowing expedition to the Amne Machin mountain range in Tibet and to K2, the second highest mountain in the world, which lies between China and Pakistan.
