    Oh I have been hankering after a good pen for years. I have looked at Lamy before but wasn’t confident about buying without trying. You have done the trying for me. Now I can do the buying. πŸ™‚

        I will. I couldn’t believe how cheap the postage quote was. When I was ordering I saw something about email a friend and we will give a 10% discount or some such. Not sure exactly what that was about but you should send them your post and mention my purchase as a result. They may give you a discount. I can give you my order number via a Facebook message if you like.

    When we at coffee this morning, we discussed the idea of how important penmanship was in our school curriculum when we were growing up. And we had to use a fountain pen. When I was in grade 6, we finally were able to use pens with cartridges instead of filling a fountain pen directly from an inkwell. Ah, those were the days….

      Happy days indeed! When I was at school, we were taught to write in italic – with pencils first and then ink pens with italic nibs. I think we were the other way round to you – we started off with cartridges and felt very grown up when we graduated on to ink bottles – a ‘write of passage’ you might say!! πŸ™‚
