The Pen Addict is a great source for real world reviews of writing instruments. I’ve been enjoying his handwritten samples of various tools for several years. His Top 5 list for June seemed like a good introduction. Most of the pens he samples are relatively inexpensive ($2-$5 on average) and the vast majority come from our favorite pen pushers, Jet Pens.
