When you’re sign­ing the con­tract, go old-school with a four­ish from an el­e­gant foun­tain pen.

WHEN IT’S FI­NALLY time to sign the pa­pers—to buy the com­pany, to sell the house, to say “I do” (or “I don’t”)—the pen you choose mat­ters. And if you’re go­ing to ink the deal, there’s no fner way to do so than with a foun­tain pen, even one with a medium nib.
