I'm getting a little tired of using a ball point pen, and I was wondering if a fountain pen would do better. Are these pens really expensive? I have both a fisher bullet and a countycomm embassy pen, and I found that the fisher refills tend to "skip" a lot. What are the advantages to using a fountain pen, and are there any disadvantages? Edit: This question has been answered. Scroll to the next couple of pages because a couple people (including myself) have a few more questions.
