I am an amateur in the truest sense of the word – I use and review pens and ink simply because I love to. There is something special about writing with a great instrument. With that said, the world of pens is frankly intimidating, and by sharing my opinions here, I hope I can give people a clearer idea of what is out there.

I also understand that many people aren’t willing to dish out the kind of money that a lot of pen makers ask for their products. That’s why I put in the same amount of care and effort reviewing budget pens as I do luxury. There’s no shame in spending less for a product if you enjoy what you have.
