    Have you ever used a fountain pen before? Here's a great starter option.

    I've bought 2, installed ink cartridges (I heard the "click") and no ink came out of either. I'm definitely at the bottom of the learning curve!

    I'm old enough to have started with a fountain pen in grade school in the early 1950's. Still use them when I'm at my office, but while on travel I tend to use ballpoints.

    Thanks again.

    Like Cobra 6, I used them in grammar school; and even had my hand smacked by a Nun with a ruler!

    I haven't had one in my hand since 1960 when I was in the 4th grade at St John the Baptist.

    I've never had one, but it'd like to try as I am always writing in journals and notebooks and such.

    My wife has a fountain pen that I have used several times. Never thought about using one for EDC. Not sure why.

    I have never had the chance to use one but am really trying to focus on writing and journaling and that would be the perfect tool for that

    I remember using one in elementary school. Would be pretty cool to have one to use again.
