Good, because you're gonna like this little bit of news.
Tiger Pens is now carrying the Pilot Prera range of fountain pens in nine awesome colors!
Normally, when someone asks about a good starter fountain pen, we recommend the Lamy Safari for its ease of use, reliability and low cost (about £14). However, some fountain pen newcomers – as well as long-time users – prefer one with a more classical look.
That's the Pilot Prera.
The barrel is a sleek, simple design vaguely reminiscent of vintage fountain pens. It is made of lightweight resin with chrome-plated trim and accepts either cartridges or a piston converter to fill with bottled ink. The Prera comes with a medium nib, but writes more like a fine point.
The barrel colors range from dark brown to light blue (and include a very elegant model in a shade of ivory).
If you aren't familiar with the Prera, check out what the connoisseurs at the Fountain Pen Network have to say about them.
Bottom line, they're all-around solid pens – well constructed, attractive and exceptionally smooth writers. And the best part, they're relatively inexpensive as far as fountain pens go, selling for about £55.
Check them out, maybe waltz one across a page, then let us know what you think.
