    Don't know how to post pics, but I use a Lamy demonstrator fountain pen every day. Still haven't figured out how to load it without inking my fingertips.

    I prefer chiseling into stone tablets. It's much more permanent.

    Kinski likes pens, he goes to pen collector conventions and spends money he doesn't have on expensive pens.

    I'm envious. I sometimes draw in miniature and admire those who can pay such fine attention to detail.

    I make custom wood pens on a lathe. They're fun to make and you can get real inventive with them too.

    I used to use calligraphy pens often. Not the kind with the ink barrels but those you had to dip in the ink well. Such a fine line!

    If you like to draw, pick up a set of Rapidographs. The fine lines you can achieve through them are wonderful. The ink on the page is unfeathered too which is important.

    I have a pen fetish and I love Watermans in particular.

    I would post my most coveted pattern, but I'm afraid some of you more moneyed people on here would snatch it up if I one ever came up on the market. I'll keep that to myself.
