Fountain Pens


      For school we have to get fountain pens. I just got one, and my mom told me to research them.

 Pen For Post                                                                                                     -Fountain Pens were the first non-dipping pen

-The first practical fountain pen was made in 1884

-The first fountain pen cartridges used medicine droppers

-They look cool and that kid called kiddoinparis has one

  1. Pourquoi fountain pens for school? Let me know how you like writing with them. I’ve been curious about them for a while. They seem classier than regular pens. Especially now that kiddoinparis has one. 🙂

    • I think the reason that the principal only allows fountain pens is because it is a traditional school, and fountain pens are the traditional pens. I am okay with writing with them, but I will have to get used to the fact that you can only write with one side of the pen. I do find that kind of strange, but thats what i’ll have to do. And you can hardly call this one classy, seeing as some of them have solid gold nibs, and diamond casing. Whoa.

  2. Well, I think your choice of pen color (yellow) is classy. Diamond casing would be pretty hip too, though (but perhaps more theft-prone).
