Write Like a Miskatonic Professor
The HPLHS is pleased to present our own line of Miskatonic University fountain pens. Lovecraft himself handwrote his stories and thousands of letters with his trusty fountain pen. We've embraced that tradition with our own Miskatonic University branded fountain pen. With the Miskatonic logo handsomely emblazoned on the barrel, soon you too will be writing in classic style.
Our fountain pen comes packed in a very nice black drawer-pull style gift box, with both an easily replaceable black ink cartridge and an installed converter for easy refills from an ink bottle. Our inaugural design is in black and silver, and is named in honor of Henry Armitage. The pen is about 5.5 inches long and 1/2 inch in diameter, with a .38mm nib. Now shipping.
The box will contain a small sheet of instructions for how to fill the pen with ink for those who don't normally use fountain pens. One supplied standard international ink cartridge will enable you to write with it right away, and it also comes with a converter so you can fill it with any color of ink you choose. Bottled ink and ink cartridges are readily available at numerous other retailers, but please make sure you get ink designed specifically for fountain pens. (India inks, drawing and alcohol-based inks may damage the pen and/or clog the ink flow.)
We use fountain pens all the time here at HPLHS headquarters, and here are some inks we like:
