If, like me, you coveted fountain pens in your youth; but the ones you could get in the school supplies aisle of your local KMart leaked all over your best shirt. And, the ones that didn’t were out of your budget.
Then the first question you asked when, as an adult, you wandered into your local pen store and saw all the beautiful Mont Blanc fountain pens inside was, “but how do I keep them from leaking all over?”
You will be happy to know that the technical improvements have made Fountain Pens much less likely to leak. I carry mine all over with no leaking (ok there was one exception).
The cost is not prohibitive either. That Mont Blanc is still a pretty penny, due to its quality, but due to the improvements in technology you can find inexpensive Chinese brands for under $15 and if you get on eBay I’m told you can get them for a couple dollars.
So now is the time to buy a fountain pen, put down the i-device, and get creative.
