I for one, am always on the look out for a pen/ink that satisfies my writing needs. I want the ink to be free flowing, non-skipping, quick drying and easily accessible/replaceable. And the pen itself? I want it to feel good in my hand, perfectly balanced whether or not I post the cap. I want the grip to be comfortable between my fingers, a cap that posts securely and a clip that doesn’t come loose.
With my 6 Lamy Safari fountain pens, I do find myself reaching for certain colors more often than others. The red and yellow are probably my favorite.
How about you? Which features are most important on your favorite writing instruments?
