Every Friday, I’m going to be posting a Fountain Pen 101 video on the foundational elements of using and understanding fountain pens. Today is the first in what I plan to be a very comprehensive series of videos to help anyone interested to learn more about fountain pens. I’ll be compiling all of these videos into the Fountain of Knowledge on GouletPens.com.

Today’s video is about the basics, what is a fountain pen and how does it work? In the video, I cover the following:

  • How a ballpoint pen works
  • How a rollerball pen works
  • How a fountain pen works
  • The internal parts that allow a fountain pen to write
There is a lot more I can cover, but I’m leaving this video to the absolute basics so I don’t go running away with it (this is actually the second video I made, the first one I DID run away with it and it was 12 minutes long…). This will lay a good foundation for future topics that I plan to do in Fountain Pen 101. Future videos will go more in depth about the parts of a pen, different filling mechanisms, types of ink, how to choose a pen for you, and more. But for now, we’re keeping things simple. Enjoy, and let me know what you think in the comments.See the other Fountain Pen 101 videos here.

Write On,
