My Grown Up Pen


I’ve made no secret of my love for pens AND for fountain pens. Since I’d had much more luck with a TWSBI Eco pen (no calluses on my finger like on the Lamy Safari pens I’d started with), I decided to take the plunge and get a TWSBI Vac pen–it’s a pen that runs over $50 (which I never thought I would spend on a pen),
