World's first ballpoint fountain pen


From the website:

    World's Only Ballpoint Fountain Pen

    This dual-tipped brass pen provides the proper writing implement for formal penmanship or informal shorthand in one device.

    The fountain tip has a pointed steel nib that flawlessly deposits a fine stream of ink onto the writing surface and won't scrape the page, allowing smooth handwriting without requiring excessive force.

    The ballpoint tip allows fluid writing, ideal for business meeting notations or casual correspondence.

    The pen's barrel and cap are wrapped in European calf leather meticulously hand-stitched and embossed with an alligator pattern, ensuring optimal comfort and a confident grip.

    Includes a gift box, eight refills for the ballpoint and six refills for the fountain.

    5-3/4" H x 2/3" W.

Dual-tipped pens like that have been in existence for quite some time. Check out eBay.

Yeah - it's definitely been done before. I reviewed one, along with a bunch of other odd pens, here.

"World's only" might be pushing it a bit - I'm sure I remember a school friend having one of these in the 70s.
