Rotring Surf Fountain Pen
One of my workhorse pens is this Rotring Surf with a medium nib, purchased as a set of four on eBay. It's a simple pen with a plastic barrel that comes in orange, blue, green, and yellow; the pen takes either a cartridge or converter, and the cost was bout $6 or so per pen. They have a great hand feel and the nib doesn't fight the paper or skip when writing. Also, the line from this medium nib looks good--one of the few medium nibs I really like the look of on paper. The Rotring Surf is a simple writing pleasure, well constructed, and something to add to your collection of lower-priced pens.
