I currently use a Sakura Pigma Micron pen, and I carry it in my right pant(s) pocket. Because it's the only pen I use for all my needs, all the time, I tend to wear it out pretty often -- and so now I've decided buy a long-term fountain pen.
I'm thinking of getting a Lamy Safari pen, extra-fine nib to use with Noodler's ink -- but I'm wondering whether it's possible to store the pen in my jeans pocket. I know you're supposed to keep fountain pens upright, but is this a ink-clogging-cosmetic-convenience issue, or a nib-damaging issue? What would happen if I carried a fountain pen around like this?
