Fountain pens are a classic sign of taste and refinement, so it goes without saying that you need one in your life. Whether you need something professional, like say someone who needs to write for hours at a time or is into calligraphy, or whether you just need something that looks good on your desk and makes your boss think that you’re a grown-up, we’ve got you covered with these, the fifteen best fountain pens available on Amazon right now.
This is one of the most popular fountain pens on Amazon, which makes sense given that it’s modestly priced for a quality fountain pen, yet still delivers a great combo of style and function. It looks good, but it’s also ergonomically designed to allow you to write continuously without your hand cramping up on you. It also comes with 24 bonus ink cartridges.
This is a great fountain pen for anyone who just wants a classic looking pen. It looks great, with a nice rosewood finish, but it also writes smoothly, which makes it a great – and affordable – addition to anyone’s office desk.
This is a really nice fountain pen that puts the premium on looks. It’s handcrafted bamboo, which makes it both beautiful and unique, but that’s not all, as it also comes with a bamboo gift box. And if you don’t like it for some crazy reason, Zenzoi will refund your money no questions asked.
Pilot Metropolitan Collection Fountain Pen
This is perhaps the classic fountain pen, which helps to explain why it’s maybe the most popular fountain pen on Amazon. It gives you Pilot quality in a sleek silver design for a great price. Maybe that helps explain the whole popularity thing.
This pen looks great, with 18k gold plating accenting as a killer touch. It also comes with a variety of goodies, including a cloth and four extra ink cartridges, and as a cool bonus: each pen is one of a limited edition of 500, meaning that you almost certainly won’t see this pen anywhere else.
This beautiful pen looks like it was taken straight from an old school Don Draper office. It gives you something that speaks of classic elegance and power to anyone who sees it, and oh yeah, it also writes softly and smoothly.
Another popular fountain pen, this one gives you a quality stroke (calm down) for a very reasonable price. It’s perfect for anyone who has to spend all day signing documents, and the combination of charcoal, chrome and steel gives it a strong, no-nonsense look.
This is a great intermediately priced fountain pen. Why is it a bit more expensive? Most fountain pens have what’s called a “medium” point or nib, which is thinner and more precise than your average ballpoint. The Sheaffer 300, however, has what’s known as a “fine nib” which is just a way of saying that it writes very, very precisely, which is perfect for artists or anyone who needs to do a lot of detailed work with their pen.
LAMY Lx Live Deluxe Fountain Pen
This fountain pen is a great bargain, featuring a fine-point nib with a contemporary style that makes it a great addition to any artist or craftsman’s arsenal. It’s maybe not the most professional-looking pen, but it gives you more professional results than many “classier” looking fountain pens.
This sleek looking pen with a rhodium finish and a 14k gold writing nib kicks things up a notch. That’s because it features an extra-fine nib, making it a perfect tool for calligraphy enthusiasts, or for anyone who just needs extra precision. You’d be hard pressed to find a more popular pen at this price point.
Pilot Vanishing Point Decimo Retractable Fountain Pen
This is a really cool pen, as it offers you the precision of a fountain pen with an extra-fine nib, and combines it with the handy functionality of a classic retractable pen, meaning that when you’re done, you just click it and the fountain nib retracts into the body. That’s a godsend for anyone who’s sick of their fountain pen making a mess and for anyone who’s sick of their nib drying out all the time.
Things get really serious with this fine-point pen with 14k gold plating highlighting a serious tool. Many cheaper fountain pens write “scratchy” for lack a of a better term, but this one gives you a smooth, effortless stroke, and it better given the price. Yes, this is an expensive fountain pen, but, well, you get what you pay for, and if you’re in need of a serious tool then this is the one for you.
Faber-Castell E-Motion Fountain Pen
This is another serious tool, featuring diamond engraving which ensures that your writing experience is as detailed as you need it to be. It “only” features a medium nib, but that’s also what keeps it relatively affordable for a fountain pen in this class. It’s effortlessly smooth and it holds up over time, ensuring that its performance remains like new even after heavy use.
Now this is a unique fountain pen because it’s handcrafted from Irish Elm when you order it, meaning that no one else on Earth will have the exact same pen as you. It features gold and chrome accents and is a bit thicker than most fountain pens, which is great for someone who wants the “feel” of something in their hand while they write. But really, it’s all about that unique hand-crafted goodness.
A next-level fine-point pen, I’ll let a couple of quotes from user reviews sum up its quality: “[writes] like butter on glass.” Or how about, “it makes the paper disappear.” Now that’s a smooth pen! And then there’s this: “I write five to eight hours a day. With pens that take cartridges or converters, I get little more than an hour before having to refill. But with this pen, I can go nearly all day.” Yeah, this is a good fountain pen.
