This simple and stylish fountain pen is designed with the ladies in mind. It has great comfort and balance, yet is a convenient "purse size" fountain pen. When the threaded cap is posted, the pen balances very nicely in hand. Yet when the cap is screwed on for storage, the pen measures only 4-1/2". And best of all, it is just plain adorable! Cartridges available at most art and/or office supplies stores.
