It is an ink pen with a metal nib.

I like rollerball pens... neater than biro (and normally a bit heavier too) but less inky than fountain.

I always press too hard with fountain pens, the nib always ends up bent round! I have the same problem with all pens but fountain pens seem to break easiest and I get my hands (and usually my face and arms too) even more covered in ink than with other pens! Parker pens seem to be the best fountain pens though, they seem stronger than most and less ink seems to end up on my hands.

Does anyone use Berol handwriting pens? They are basically the same as ballpoint pens but are much thicker and chunkier to grip and use liquid rather than gel ink that almost excactly resembles fountain pen ink.

Berol...that name sounds strangely familiar. Are they a sort of red/orange colour?

I find handwriting pens so much easier to use or ones with grips already on them such as Gel pens. I can't write with fountain pens, they stress me out :lol:

Thing is about Yuropen is, they're really excellent, but the ink runs out SO quickly >.<
