Best Smooth Writing Fountain Pens

 

Fountain pens undoubtedly provide a writing experience like no other. Once you feel the smooth glide of a fountain pen’s nib across a piece of paper, you may find yourself looking for the same sensation every time you write. Every writer has different preferences in how they want their nib to feel. Some like a little bit of feedback (hello, Sailor and Platinum lovers) while others prefer glassy-smooth pens, which is what this article will be about. Here are some of the best smooth writing fountain pens that you can try. 

 

Pelikan M205

Pelikan is known for manufacturing some of the smoothest and most consistent nibs in the fountain pen world, and the M205 is no exception. It produces a nice, wet flow that adds to the overall buttery feel of the nib. Despite being a steel nib, there is some noticeable springiness that makes the writing experience more enjoyable overall. 

 

Pilot Vanishing Point Decimo

If you prefer nibs to be on the finer side, then you can’t go wrong with Pilot. Their Decimo is one of the most sought-after smooth nibs from the brand, a very good choice considering its price point. Compared to the original Vanishing Point, the Decimo is slimmer and slightly smaller, making it more comfortable to write with for some users. The pen is fitted with a rhodium-plated, 18-karat gold nib that just glides on paper. 

 

LAMY 2000

The LAMY 2000 is revered not just for its minimalist Bauhaus design, but also for its stunning, partially platinized 14-karat gold nib. The pen has a moderate ink flow, so it is by no means the juiciest writer on the list, but it is consistent and very smooth. For the best writing experience, we recommend getting this in a medium nib or broader. 

 

Pilot Custom Urushi

For those who want to go all out with a glassy smooth nib, the Custom Urushi from Pilot is definitely the right choice. Many collectors have lauded this pen for being the smoothest writer they have ever used, which shows the level of craftsmanship and quality of materials used for the 18-karat nib and the urushi-lacquered body. This pen is the priciest on our list, but if you have the budget, this pen is a must-have simply because of its unrivaled smoothness in writing.

 

Pens that glide like butter across paper are highly coveted in the fountain pen world. It can truly enhance your writing experience and make it more enjoyable. When choosing the right pen for you, it can also help to learn more about nib sizes and why line widths matter. This can make a big difference in how it feels when you write, including smoothness. 

 

Happy writing!
