USING FOUNTAIN PENS
Fountain pen writing is a unique experience. Vintage pens use liquid ink and split metal fountain pen tips or
Nibs. The ink is stored internally in antique pens either in a rubber ink sack, ink converter or in later collectible pen models,
a plastic ink cartridge. The liquid ink flows through a grooved section to the fountain pen nib. The free flowing ink results in a
smooth writing experience that cannot be duplicated with ball point pens or pencils.

HISTORY- Packard pens were concidered a cheap fountain pen brand producing lever-filling pens in the 1930s and early 1940s. Packard pens had untipped steel nibs (imprinted DURIUM or DURIUM TIPPED) and were not designed to be repaired. It is not unlikely that this name was chosen to suggest a relationship with Packard automobiles; the prospective purchaser might infer therefrom that the pens were of high quality, as were the cars. Although these were considered cheap fountain pens in the 1930s the fountain pictured is over 70 years old and still works great.
