The quill is just the tool.  You have to know the forms of writing first before you can really use one.  That's calligraphy.  There are many types of calligraphy, not all of them are flowery.  Just look at the constitution or some older German writing.  It can be really neat if you practice and know how to do it.  Then you use ink and a cut quill to write like that....like our founding father's did.  That's one of the things I want to learn to do when I retire.
