Since I was a kid I’ve enjoyed writing with a special pen. A special pen doesn’t have to be expensive or beautiful or exclusive. A special pen is a pen that my hand feels at home with; that makes the hand feel relaxed and focused on writing, yet experiencing the tactical pleasure of putting the pen to the paper. The pen above is one of my current favourites. It has a stubbish – slightly calligraphic – nib and is so comfortable to write with that it feels like I could write with it forever and ever.
