I am guessing a place like this where people still use and value old and old style items might have some pen and paper lovers. My brother and I have collected fountain pens and pens for years. He got me a Monteverde roller ball that refills like a fountain pen. I see Herbin and Konrad make them too. It's nice to have a ball type pen with the ink color choices and some of these things are not expensive. I can't speak for all of them but I've noticed it's a little squeaky and less so with a modern in with lubricant in it. My work reality is I just don't use pen and paper like I used to. I don't want someone grabbing a special fountain pen from me or my space having no idea it's a special item. This is ball pen function with the not throw away and ink ritual aspect all in one.
