There's something deeply satisfying about the smooth draw of a liquid ink fountain pen gliding across high-quality, Japanese paper. In my case, an extra fine nib with Noodler's ink, and I get the distinct pleasure to watching that little glistening of the ink before it dries. Watching that sheen over the page reflecting the warm light of your well-tuned office space is...well, that's how words should be recorded.
