I am trying to get started doing calligraphy and was wonder what kind of pen you 
recommend using.  I currently have a cartridge style calligraphy pen right now 
but I am having problems with the ink flow being steady.  Not sure if that means 
I am doing something wrong or not.  I was wondering if the pens you dip in the 
ink are a better option?  

I am try Arabic calligraphy and I know that it is normally done with a reed pen, 
but I was thinking that using a normal pen to while I was learning might be 

Any help or direction you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
