My pen is my sword

I have a very favourite pen, and this is it - the Papermate Flair. All of mine recently ran out, so I have been searching high and low for a replacement, but had no joy - these bad boys are difficult to get hold of. I had wanted one to write all my Christmas cards with, as this is one of the only pens that makes my handwriting anywhere near nice. It has a felt-tip style nib and if you buy the blue one (my fave) then it looks like proper fountain pen ink, but this dries instantly, without any of the mess.

I was at a meeting, and the person I was meeting with produced this pen from his pocket. I pounced on it, demanding to know where he got it from. We had a good old chat, with the both of us extolling the virtues of said pen for quite some time, and then he said "you can have the pen, I have boxes of them". I didn't need to be told twice, and stashed it in my handbag straight away. Christmas had come early.

I've since tracked them down and put in my order, on this brilliant website, Cult Pens.
