I doubt–in fact, I know I’m not the only one that wishes that my pens that are worth a little more wrote as well as some of the el cheapo pens write. The two silver pens pictured below are the only silver pens that I have, neither of which have been star performers.
The Waterman is a family pen which I’ve had restored to pass along in the family. The Parker, which I bought in the 1970s, sat in my drawer for 25 years. I’m using it again now, occasionally, but it is finicky about it’s ink diet. It likes Lamy Turquoise, but I’m trying to coax it to try for a more balanced diet!
