Our Favourite Fountain Pens
Fountain pens are the traditional type of pen and give the widest range of colour, materials and price.
We have selected our favourites and our best sellers. They are displayed below, in ascending price order. We have separated them in price points, £20, £50 and £100.
We have also highlighted the most popular pens and outlined their best features.
Noodler's Ahab Fountain Pens
The Noodler's Ahab fountain pen is our best selling pen.
It is popular because of the simple design, biiiig ink capacity and a flexible nib.
The flexible nib is rare amongst modern fountian pens and simply means you can vary your writing pressure to change the width of the written (or drawn) line. The range is around 0.7mm with no pressure upto around 2.0mm.
£20 and Over
TWSBI Eco Fountain Pen
This is probably our favourite pen out of everything we sell.
It is robust and reliable, good quality, has a choice of nib widths from Extra Fine to 1.1mm italic and is piston filler. This means is a 'real' fountian pen and can only be filled with bottled ink only, no ink cartridges.
It comes in a box with a small pot of grease for lubricating the internal piston and a spanner to take it apart to clean it out.
It's brilliant and between us in our office, we have 7!
