Who uses Fountain Pens?

I kinda use fountain pens but like I don’t do calligraphy so I guess that doesn’t make me a legit fountain pen enthusiast.

Actually they don’t really have anything to do with each other unless you are using a nib (tip of the pen) specifically designed for calligraphy. Most people just use them like regular pens. I avoided them for a long time because I’m left handed. There are tons of pens that just don’t work for left handed writers and I thought fountain pens would fall into that category. Turns out they work better than most, just gotta be careful about occasionally sliding your hand through wet ink if you’re a lefty lol but that’s more of a lefty problem, not a fountain pen problem

I went through a fountain pen phase earlier this year. I was mostly into flex pens and stub nibs for stylized writing.
