A primary reason why we all choose a pen is on the premise of how well it writes and how easier it is too work without much fatigue.
The ability to enhance the writing experience through a smooth and easy ink flow without much effort from the hand. Then again, there’s the writing experience itself which transforms into something pleasant and even enjoyable to a degree.
But there’s something different from these aspects that truly define a pen more than what it is!
However, a pen is more than just a writing instrument, just like how words are more than ink on paper.

In fact, his theatre company in New York has a tradition of ‘passing the pen on’ each year. Even without the actor’s own experience, countless events such as promotions, birthdays and academic
With a pen, you have an ageless tool that connects generations beyond time.
There is more to Penmanship than just pen and paper. It’s an art. It’s legacy.
Pens have and always will continue to stand out in more ways than one.
