A Lamy fountain pen with a transparent barrel
This transparent fountain pen from Lamy allows you to see your ink supply, just like the old demonstrators you’d find in a classic stationer’s store back in the early 20th century. Lamy’s popular Vista Fountain Pen has a clear plastic barrel, so it’s comfortably lightweight in the hand, and gleaming chrome clip and appointments.

Demonstrator pens, once used to show retailers how to fill their fountain pens, are finding a new audience among pen lovers. They're the writing equivalent of the glass-bottom boat. You can see right through the Lamy Vista. Now you'll know exactly how much ink you have remaining. This Lamy is plastic so it's comfortably lightweight, and the clip is big enough for any shirt. It's steel, like the fountain pen's firm nib. The fountain pen has a snap cap. There's a certain appeal to technology so transparently simple. See for yourself how much fun these Vistas can be.
This is the fountain pen that convinced me that a steel nib could be just as pleasing as a gold one.
