    I Appreciate A Fine Pen

    I have several very nice new and vintage fountain and ballpoint pens. Most are by Waterman, Sheafer, Esterbrook, and Namiki. My favorite everyday pen is a Parker Insignia in marbled blue and black with gold trim, but Parker ballpoint ink is one of the worst writing. My Waterman...

    I'm obsessed with the Pilot G2 .

    38 gel rollers. I hate having to write with anything else. I have small handwriting, so the extra fine point is crucial.

    A Pen Is Mightier

    My husband has a good collection of fountain pens. He is very proud of his collection. He insisted we should sign any legal documents with a good pen. He claimed good pens write well. It is not easy for me to write with one. I prefer my biro- spoils from the last hotel room...

    I have a very bad habit of collecting pens and hardly ever using them. But these days I'm actually using them until they're completely empty! It's amazing to feel that you've actually written so much that the ink pen is actually empty. I have a big cup filled with pens. I don't...

    Horner's Hand Turned Fountain Pens

    I started working on a site for a man (Rich Horner) that had to quit his job because of his fight with cancer. He began working on hand-turning pens for a living, and he's pretty incredible at it. The website tells his story and gives a lot of practical advice on how to care for...

    The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

    In this age of mega computers I am so glad my friend sent me the link to join "I LOVE PENS".  Just when I thought my friend and I were the only pen fanatics, holy quill feathers Bat-Man, there's more among us!  I don't spend money on shoes or purses but I do on pens and if my...

    Something In The Way They...

    ... glide over the paper. Every stroke is permanent. I have a tendency to fall in love with the way a pen handles and use it obsessively to write and draw. I feel the true nature of my writing and thus my character is shown through writing or drawing in pen. I love to see my...

    Their like my obsession?

    When I was younger I loved them and as I got older the love just grew with me. Now I have a collection of them :) it's kinda funny though because I use to take peoples pens unintentionally and keep them. I don't do that too much any more. But I still have the "Ooh I like that...

    Yeah, I have a problem with this. I won't go out and buy clothes or anything, I just have big bags full of pens that I use on different journals. And I have this weird thing where I can't start using another pen until the one I'm using at the time runs out of ink.

    All Kinds

    I love to collect pens that look cool and write nice.  Drug rep pens are the best because they always look so funky.  I have pens that are scented and even one of those space pens that write upside down and through anything.  Pens are also very useful so they are a...

    When I write, I prefer writting with a pen then to a pencil.  Maybe it is cause of the color.  It would be cool, if someone would invent colorful lead too.

    I do love pens. They come in all different groovy designs. It's like you walk into a class and there's a pen disco going on that you didn't know about. I recently developed this habit of robbing pens off my family as I wear mine out so quickly. It quite interesting to see their...

    Hi My Name Is Olli

    *walks up to the mic*   *Ahem* Yes I am addicted to pens. No in fact, I am in loves with pens. At first it started as a work thing. I would get samples for the popular pen vendors all over the world and it was innocent. Then I started having nightmares about my...

    A Simple Pleasure

    I loooove pens- all different kinds, all colors, all styles. I get very defensive if someone walks away with one of my favorite pens- I WILL go after them! lol And I don't steal (intentionally, anyway) other people's pens, because I hate it when people steal mine.

    When I was in highschool I had a funny teacher. He used to make pretty good jokes that would make the class laugh. There was one thing that would really annoy him though, when students would overclick their pens. So eventually they realized this and would do it onpurpose just to...
