If a person just wanted to find something to write with, it is possible to purchase a small bag of mass produced pens for a few dollars. If what is desired is something attractive that is as much a status symbol or an attractive gift as something to write with, then browse for a metal pen online. There is a considerable selection, and they are both attractive and practically collectors items.
There is something about the weight and solidness of a metal pen that makes for a better writing experience. They are more durable, which means they might serve better if inserted into a purse or wallet. They are attractive and give greater confidence when signing forms and writing checks. If using them to write notes or keep a journal, then the weight of metal creates a counterbalance to the movement of the pin head. The result might be a smoother, more luxurious handwriting experience.
