My Journey in Penmanship – Breaking Free of Old Habits


  1. Thanks for your posts, I’ve been hankering for a fountain pen and was wondering if I’d gone mental. I have been looking at the pilot metro and I believe your post and pictures have swayed me to have it as my starter pen

      Any of the Pilot Metros are a great starter pen. Don’t forget that a Pilot medium nib is like an American fine; and a fine is like an extra fine as Japanese sizes are one size smaller. There are several styles of this pen – 3 classic colors with plain, diamond pattern, or dot on the bands; several animal prints; and now new retro colors.

      Let me know which you decide to get.

      Thanks for stopping by my site.
