Pentel Tradio

Yesterday, while browsing in San Francisco's fantastic Maido Japanese stationery store, I discovered the wonderful Pentel Tradio, a fountain pen with a plastic nib. Wow: what an amazing pen. It lays down a wet, thick line, and apparently Pentel even sells refills. Highly recommended.
