For John, BLUF: Something special about fountain pens. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I did give my Meisterstück to my youngest Son, when he earned an award from Attorney General Loretta Lynch, for helping to track down bad guys on the internet. I had owned the pen for some time and it was time for it to have a new home and to be a symbol of recognition of work well done.
Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
