Fountain pens. Always. Especially pilot 823 for signing and Lamy 2000 for novels. RT @FMorrison42: rollerball or fountain?

This single tweet has been my undoing.
Both pens have been on my radar for years, and because of the costs involved I’ve never really risked buying either one.
Now I have both.
And sure enough, both of them have been exquisite. They are my two favorite pens now out of what must be over two dozen (admittedly far less expensive fountain pens).
Both are going with me to my top secret writing location to work on “Two Seconds of Your Time”. I’ve been breaking them in and they are definitely up to the task.
Also, I’ve started reading Anansi Boys. Thanks again, Neil.
