I have been using fountain pens for a number of years at the suggestion of my doctor. He told me that if you either have or are at risk for carpal tunnel issues, a fountain pen is ideal. I have used Shaeffer pens for years mostly due to the cartridge filling system. But I just got a Pilot with a converter and bottle ink. Very nice. I really like that it makes my handwriting look better than with a regular pen, and there is also little to no hand strain. I tend to prefer a medium nib, but there are some nice fine point pens. My next goal is to get a Mont Blanc 149 pen. I have also started using bottled ink, and rather like it.
Anyone else use fountain pens? Anyone else care?
