Here's a fountain pen you don't have to worry about losing, lending, or damaging. The lightweight, disposable Pilot Varsity brings the expertise of a leading Japanese nib manufacturer to the ultra-cheap segment of the market. No, it doesn't write like a $20 pen, but if you're a fountain pen user, it's much more appealing than a ballpoint. It's also a nice way to dip your toe into the world of fountain pens without spending a lot of money. The nib is nice and smooth, with a versatile medium width line and seven ink colors.
