    Are there? huh? Tap, Tap, Tap . . . is this thing on?

    And no, 'Fountain Pen' is not the name of an app.

    I have a Parker fountain pen that I used throughout my school years. But now, my handwriting is so bad and I can type much faster than I can write....

    i use a fountain pen all the time,i love a "proper" pen,the thing to remember about a fountain pen is to let no one else use it,we all write differently,I'm left handed too.

    A good point - never let anyone else use it..just like my iPad, no-one - but no-one - ever ever ever gets to touch it....

    I steal pens. Never ever let me use your pen. I will steal it and put it in my purse. Just last night, I stole the pizza guy's pen.

    He came all the way back to get it! I just can't help it and never realize I am doing it.:eek:

    Oh I'm the same, it's not as if I need them because I use a chisel and stone tablet (iStone Tablet).

    You're hilarious!! It must have been a good pen for him to return.

    I did use mine a lot once, but now I only ever seem to use it for sending cards and invitations. I agree never ever let anyone else use it.

    But there was a certain 'style' to handwriting. How many people write by hand now? I almost never do. It's a sad passing of a bygone age. I took pride in my pen and my 'penmanship', now I can most never read my own writing...:(
