      It all depends on the budget one has — there are a lot of interesting lower priced pens, but the value and quality and class can be found in relatively costlier pens. I have found that between $150-to-$350 buys you a pen that will do many years of hard duty. I have gone through many variations and have finally settled on three — one for letter writing, one for more casual writing and one for special documents. They all vary in prices — $125 to about $600. These days, when I am out reporting I throw an inexpensive Montevista Arista in by bag – it is about $55 and I use plain blue or dark purple cartridges. Nib is fine, but frankly I don’t like the way it feels on my notebooks. It works well on Rhodia dot.pads though. I bought it on a lark when picking up ink from a local store. Again, not something that will survive the winter for me.

    Brian Lam over at the Wirecutter did some meta-research on cheap pens:
