Glass pen

Has anyone tried a glass pen? I bought one a few weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how fun it was to write with! I drew up this birthday card for a friend during my first use, and I already look forward to my next project, although I did order different ink. I didn't like this one very much, because it was too thick (it's acrylic paint vs. ink)

Have you ever written with calligraphy pens? If so, how does it compare?

I havenít written with either, but my wife is into this sort of stuff, so could be a gift idea.

Where did you get yours from?

It doesn't write as smooth as a calligraphy pen, because it's a very hard tip, but it's nice and something different. It's not expensive either, so it's worth the try
I got mine from Amazon.

Just remember never use that ink in a fountain pen.
