  • Select fountain pens over ballpoint pens because they write more smoothly and your handwriting will be more distinctive.
  • Purchase a fountain pen with a solid gold point for a smooth finish.
  • Choose a style and nib width you like. If you prefer the appearance of a broad stroke, select a large nib. For a more refined handwriting style, choose a smaller nib.
  • Stick with a larger brand name so that you can return it or have it fixed. Like cars, fountain pens break down and sometimes parts have to be changed. With a larger company, the parts will probably be easier to obtain and more widely available simply because they are more widely distributed. Ink refills will be easier to obtain as well.
  • Consider modern pens because they have cartridges that are easier to replace and provide a better seal. The ink is supplied via cartridge, pump, or both. Also, contemporary fountain pens usually offer a choice of nib widths from extra fine to extra broad.
