Fountain Pen Calligraphy

If you're a fan of street artists with dope handstyles, or just clean script typography, your eyes will appreciate the video below. Fountain pens have been used to write some of the most important documents in history, including those that are giving us the freedom of the press to even write this to you. Regardless of their age, they leave a special trail on the surface they touch. 
Of course we have fancy digital printing pens, and our cheap go-to BIC pens, but the writing of fountain pens is close to a live masterpiece. See for yourself below and if you're interested in getting one, check out the Namiki Falcon customized by nibmeister John Mottishaw.
