Practical Penmanship: Fountain Pens


hi friends welcome back to another
episode on practical penmanship in this week’s video we’re going to be giving
you 5 reasons why you should switch over to a fountain pen stay tuned so as I’d said today I’m giving you five
reasons why if you haven’t already you should be switching over to a fountain
pen so let’s get right into it number one
mindfulness most people who have never held a fountain pen before treat it as
if it were a relic they’re very intimidated by the fountain pen and this
creates a mindful response as a visual artist I love an artwork that forces its
audience to interact with it in a certain way and a fountain pen does just
that you see you have to write with the hood of the fountain pen nib facing
upward otherwise you might not even create a line and so this forces newbies
to really slow down when it comes to using a fountain pen and when it comes
to practicing penmanship and this is a good thing because practical
penmanship requires mindfulness reason number two they’re long lasting
potentially sustainable and eco-friendly so a fountain pen can truly last a
lifetime and beyond if taken care of they’re refillable and if you take your
ink from a glass bottle it’s very eco-friendly no plastic
cartridges or plastic pens to throw away when it’s done just refill it and
they’re also made from long lasting materials whether that be a high grade
acrylic or a celluloid or perhaps a steel or even the infamous lava-rock
acrylic combo found in the Homo Sapien so if you want a pen that’s going to
last you forever it’s got to be a fountain pen reason number three
self-expression there are so many different unique fountain pens out there
that you are bound to find one that fits your vibe from the understated Lamy
to the elegant Delta and when you begin to consider the nib to ink combo there
are just infinite variations that can definitely express something about your
individual style I mean the combinations are boundless maybe not boundless so function and
style in one package now that’s practical reason number four
fountain pens are simply a joy to write with when I first started using fountain
pens it brought a whole new level of fun to my handwriting practice there is just
so much personality packed into each fountain pen that’s made and to be
honest collecting them can be quite addicting so do be wise with your
investments if you decide to take the plunge but a good fountain pen can
really elevate your writing experience and last but not least reason number
five a legacy by embracing fountain pens you become part of a long history and
tradition and it is also an opportunity for you to begin a tradition and leave a
legacy within your own family if you’re looking for the perfect heirloom and
maybe I’m a bit too young to be thinking about this but if you are the fountain
pen is definitely a good option and who knows you may inspire descendants of
your own family in centuries time to take up a fountain pen and hand write
once again so friends that’s all I have for you today
