His photos and article about the Pilot Murex fountain pen.
Regular readers know that I am not a fountain pen guy, in general. I’ve tried a Kaweco and a Waterman and various disposables and enjoyed using a few of them, but nothing that really got my heart racing.
However, I have always wanted a Pilot Vanishing Point, not because they were retractable, though that helped, but because of their style. They were just the coolest looking fountain pens I’d ever seen, and, unfortunately, pretty pricey.
The one thing I never loved about the Vanishing Point was the placement of the clip.
And then recently, I saw Stutler’s collection of Pilot Murex fountain pens. They’re stainless steel, even sleeker and sexier than the Vanishing Point and, because they’re capped, don’t have the awkward clip placement.
