The high price of being goth

Behold, the Benu Skull & Roses Fountain Pen. I got a promotional email from my favorite pen dealer today. It comes in all black, all red or red and black (excuse me: crow, red rose and smolder).

I’ll be honest. I thought about it for a second. But at £140, I didn’t think long.

That’s not much to a pen collector, but I ain’t one of them.

An article from this same dealer once said, a pen over £20 and you aren’t paying for a better nib any more, you’re paying for decoration. I don’t have any >£20 pens on my desk.
