So I'm a sucker for pens... always have been. The prettier, the better. I've shied away from fountain pens simply because I'm left-handed and I drag my hand across the ink. When I was younger (not quite a teenager in the 60, but still) this was a fairly major issue as ink technology was nowhere as advanced as today, so the ink stayed wet for a while, making my use of a fountain pen problematic.
Not no more!! :D
(there was a friggin' hair on the background I used for the second shot; the price of cats :P)
