an old jew VP in my office is into pens, he likes to tell people it's his only vice. he has an 18 inch display case on his desk and writes with a different one for every task

Funny, while I never write cursive in the real world, and my handwriting is so on "fast" and not "neat" that I can't even read what I wrote sometimes, I find that when I use a fp I actually want to write cursive. Not only that, my cursive is pretty damn good after not using it since I was in grade school iirc. There is just something about a fp that lends itself to cursive writing.

Plus, I like being able to chose exactly what color, shade and consistency of ink I write with. And size and shape of nib too. Granted it is definitely not the quickest, easiest writing solution. I'm sure it attracts more of the hobbyist type (I collect records, too), but it sure is nice to utterly customize and personalize your written output. And from an ecological standpoint, it creates a lot less waste and is much cheaper to the user in the long run. To the people who actually spend money on pens, at least.
