Do you have one? If so, do you love it? I'm thinking of treating myself as a pat on the back for landing a new job grin
I was having browse on Cult Pens and fell in love with the Matte Black Special Edition. It looks lovely!

Yes - they are brilliant pens. Smooth to write with and satisfyingly chunky in the hand.

The only FP as good for day-to-day writing is the Platinum ‘Preppy’ also available on Cult Pens, but it doesn’t look nearly as nice.

Lammy do some nice colours of ink cartridge too.

...and congratulations, I’m sure you deserve it (both the job and the pen)!

Lovely pens, I’ve bought from cult pens in the past, I would recommend both.

I love Lamy as an "everyday" fountain pen. I whip out a flash looking Parker for special occasions though.

Thanks urbane! I'm really excited about it ☺️

nik I love Cult Pens! I've spent far too much money on there feeding my Stationary habit! 🙈

Love them. Had one or another for about 20 years, usually in red these days, and feel distressed if I can’t find My Pen. To write my Lists with, obviously.

And congratulations on the job. Think I bought my first one as a ‘new job’ present.

Thanks boudica smile

I'm a list lover myself wink

fairfax I haven't used a Parker in years! That's made me feel all nostalgic! Used to love a Parker in secondary school, might have to look into a grown up version ☺️

I also have a Parker IM fountain pen, which I’m a bit disappointed with. It looks and feels good, but if not used at least every day it sulks and dries up in a way that none of my other pens do (the Safari writes perfectly even after a week or so).

Oddly, the cheaper Vector pens I remember from high school don’t seem to have the same trouble.

Lamy’s ‘logo’ range are a better bet for a slightly posher pen, though.
