On Point With Go Pens #75

On Point

What are desk sets used for?

Usually one would place a desk set fountain pen (or even a dip pen) on their desk. The sturdy base acts as a cap and holder, and the longer, tapered bodies are elegant and comfortable. Sometimes ink wells are coupled with them for dip nibs, or refilling a pen. They are obviously not convenient for carrying.
