Fountain pens are beautiful pieces, which, when kept on a work desk or clipped to a suit, add a feeling of sophistication.

Of course, it is mainly used for signatures and quick notes, but the pen's functionality has gone beyond that. It has also become standard gifts for significant individuals in a company — a retiring board member, a new partner, a newly promoted staff, etc. For some people, fountain pens are just beautiful and functional pieces to collect.
