I had a fountain pen a few years ago, but I have no idea where it is, but bout a month ago, I decided to get a Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen. I liked it but I thought it was a bit scratchy, so I got a Lamy Safari, and then I decided to get a pen with a gold nib, so I got a Pilot Vanishing Point, and the Vanishing Point is my favorite pen so far. I also ended up ordering a Pilot Custom 74, and it should be here on Saturday. I've kind of become obsessed with fountain pens recently, I've spent way too much money on pens that I could have spent on fish stuff, but oh well. Is anyone else here into fountain pens?

Uh, do you mean what type of nib? I don't really remember all the specifics of the types.

I wanted to use a fountain pen as my everyday pen, but my fountain pens keep leaking :(. I ordered a Lamy Al-star rollerball for everyday use, it isn't a fountain pen, but it's a rollerball, so it uses liquid ink.

Pilot precise v7 rolerball pens are nice, but they aren't refillable, and I like pens that are refillable, since I usually write about about 50 pages a month in a fishkeeping log/journal.
