Best Writing Fountain Pens Reviewed (Updated for 2020)
As a writer, sometimes the tools that you use can be the difference in getting your creativity to flow infinitely, and from having writers block. That may sound ridiculous to some, but let me explain.
Research has shown that writing in a flow state is more than just the environment you’re in. The chair you sit in, the pen you use, and many more factors contribute to your overall writing experience just as much as the environment.
When you have a nice, comfortable grip on your pen it makes you think less about your hand and more focused on writing. When the pen you have is so well designed that it glides across the paper effortlessly, you are focused on the only thing that matters which is letting your ideas flow.
There’s also a psychological aspect to having an expensive or high quality pen when writing. Humans tend to feel in more of a creative state when they are relaxed and comfortable. Luxury and abundance tend to give us that comfort and make us feel confident and great about ourselves, which can easily bleed over into our writing.
There are many pens on the market, from high priced Mont Blanc’s the the regular Bic ballpoint pens that you can buy from your local office supply store. But many of the best fountain pens for writing are not found in stores and you’ll have to do some research.
In this guide we’re going to be covering the best writing fountain pens available and why you should or shouldn’t choose to purchase one. Below, we cover features, benefits, grip, quality, costs, and much more for our favorite fountain pens.
