NOW your talking my language!!!!!
I have been using fountain pens since I was in grade school. The nuns hated me for it. They had just quit using them in the schools in AZ and here I was trying to use them. I hate ball pens. They streak, blob, smear, and skip. My fountain pens, well most of the 400 or so I have work beautifully. I also collect them. My favorite for writing checks and signing dockies is a 1928 Parker Doufold Sr.
When I was in High School I kept bottles of ink in my locker for an ocasional refill during the day. I still have the Parker 51 I carried in High School.
I'm an anacranism. I guess that is why I like single action revolvers, and lever guns.
I don't just sign dockies with mine, I use them to write in my journal and write letters and whatever.
Don't draw fire, it annoys people around you.
