Essentially when men think about pens some do not give it a second thought, and others take a little more consideration into it.
Even though we live in a world of technology, that does not mean we as humankind have negated the simple pastime of writing things down on paper.
How to Choose the Pen that Fits You
Different types and styles of pens have always been a simple, yet intricate display of personality. In addition to the latter, men have found extreme comfort in different types of pens as well.
Here are a few deciding factors you should keep in mind in choosing the best luxury pens for you:
- Elegance: Elaborate pens are best for the office. There is really no better way to demonstrate your value as a successful man then to have a sophisticated pen on your desk in which you can sign documents or write memos.
- Grip: For men who like to have a close/strong grip and control while writing, they tend to choose slimmer pens. However, if you’re someone interested in writing for long periods of time I thicker pen is better suited. For writing, you don’t want to have to have a hard grip, nor do you want to press down hard.
- Ink: Then of course there is the obvious basic use of the ink. Certain pens like fountain pens require more regular use to prevent clogging of the ink. This is something important to keep in mind, so make sure to buy a pen that reflects how often you will use it.
You should also be familiar with the most common types of pens. These include:
- Ballpoint Pen: These Pens are easy to use, dry quickly, write smoothly and lasts a long time.
- Rollerball Pens: These pens leave a dark line on paper and don’t require much pressure. These are best suited for the office though because they are prone to bleeding and leaking ink.
- Ink-Gel Pen: These pens give off a bright, vibrant color and have great writing quality.
- Fountain Pen: These pens are elegant in both look and use. They allow the holders to create a varied writing style, by adjusting the thickness of the ink on the paper. There is a bit of a learning curve to it though.
In this article we have an array of pens (20 to be exact) that will go well in your home, in your office, and even with you on the go at the local coffee shop.
