Re: Worst first pen
Something really expensive. Something in casein (Oh no! I left it soaking to clean and now it looks like a banana!)Sheaffer Snorkel (I have seen a couple newbies unscrew the front end while trying to extend the snorkel). Anything that does not write well, because that just leads to failure and frustration.)I would stay away from crisp italic and xxf nibs as well, because of the small sweet spot on a nib like that. Miss the sweet spot and your writing experience could be quite unpleasant. Wet noodle nibs could also lead to exasperation.
Early in my acquiring, I picked up some vintage MBs, and they have been great pens. Durable, nice writers, good sizes. I did get pushed into a counter by an enthusiastic child and shattered the Classique RB in my pants pocket, but MB replaced all the broken parts (the cap top, section, and clip, were the only things not broken)for $35. Now I do not keep plastic pens in my pants pockets.
