Upgrade Your Fountain Pen

There are few things in life that truly surpass the joy of writing with a fountain pen. The feel of the nib as it glides across the page. The way the pen itself makes you slow down and consider your words more carefully. More than any other tool, it is a trusted friend that can accompany you for years, if not a lifetime. If you’re already a fountain pen fan, then you may think it’s time to upgrade your fountain pen. Both aesthetically, and in terms of usability, there is huge variety out there, with something for every taste, style and budget. But watch out, some additions can be costly.

Go For Gold
