Given the crowd, this seems like the perfect question to crowdsource: if you were buying a gift for someone you knew liked fountain pens, what pen would you get? Or would you skip the pen as too personal, and just get an assortment of paper and ink?
I would love to find a pen that’s not too expensive, but not entry-level, either; a little unique, a little gifty, and less likely to already be owned (or can you not own too many Lamy Safaris?). I don’t have a firm budget, but something around $50-ish dollars, plus or minus, would be great.
Suggestions warmly appreciated!
