Who invented the word ‘bonanza’ and what does it mean? Was it just for marketing? I reckon so. I will look it up in a dictionary and then write it in my notebook in my heavenly limited edition Mint Glaze Lamy Safari fountain pen because, yes, as we promised, we have got a FABULOUS collection of carefully chosen cartridge-based fountain pens in!
I’ve chosen four models of pen, which fall under four categories of feelings regarding the luxury scale of your pen:
- Wow am I the Queen?
Schneider XPect Vivaz Fountain Pens
Pen Colour: Rubin Red
Helix Oxford Fountain Pen
Pen Colour: Rose Gold
The rose gold barrel is nicely weighted and the cap sports a polished chrome pocket clip engraved with ‘Helix Oxford’. The steel nib has iridium tipping for smooth writing with a certain degree of flex, and writes a 0.6mm line.
Schneider Ceod Shiny Fountain Pens
Sleek metallic barrel, and durable, iridium-tipped stainless steel nib. Along with its ergonomic rubberised grip area and sturdy metal pocket clip it represents excellent value for money.
Medium nib only.
