A fine pen is a display of mind, a more serious matter — an opulent indulgence of the intellect. To own one is to reject the disposable, the non permanent, and last minute unpreparedness. A thinking man is always equipped with his writing apparatus, and his choice in tools is well considered.
The chaos of modern life demands an appreciation for all things analog - objects and tools immune to the transient nature of digital life; an anchor, like a traveler's compass, that brings bearing to the web of the virtual and abstract. A good tool will never be obsolete.
A writing tool takes a permanent place in every man’s essentials. Life experiences build character, and youth becomes a subdued rebellion. Seek tools that stand the test of time.
Write ideas on paper, indulge in scholarly rituals, seek refinement in modern life — and find comfort in the nuances of daily living, like the smell of fresh ink on paper, or the brilliant heft of a fine pen. A refined life is the life of a sophisticated man.
