I have two fountain pens now, one is a Rot Ring and the other is cheap Pelikan,
The main difference between the two pens is that the Pelikan uses a lot of ink and my blue writing looks very dark blue nearly black, when I write with it and my writing also seems to look less neat.
Fountain pens are used a lot here, but so are biros, probably something to do with the fact that we're forced to use them at school.

I know just what you mean, my writing looks terrible if I use a biro ( uh... somehow I get the feeling you don't use this word in America... it's a ball point pen (think it is at least... yeah, biros have a ball sort of thing at the tip ... )).
What about a few scans of people's handwriting (with different pens)?

The thing I don't like about ball-points is that they don't lay down a smooth line. They're all jerky and uneven. The ink doesn't go on smoothly, and sometimes it doesn't go on at all. Liquid ink is better, and my new calligraphy pen is best of all, at least in my opinion.
