Attila: Leather is so rich as a planner (or book, etc.) cover, and beautiful, as well.

How does Safari compare with Tanna Japonensis? Cool bottle.
Does the color of the ink stain on your fingers give others a window into the depth of your soul, or did you just forget to wear gloves?  Unknown.

You like Ancient Copper, so you're probably going to like Terracotta. I feel like Terracotta is like unsaturated Ancient Copper. Safari is a great one. That leather book looks great! :)

I find MB Leonardo DaVinci like an unsaturated Ancient Copper...  Where does Terracota stands?

I think Terracotta is even less saturated than MB LDV. MB LDV is probably closer to Ancient Copper in terms of colour though.

It's Rutherford Library at the University of Alberta. Super nice. People call it the "Harry Potter Room."

Festivus came early this year, and here's my new addition to the stable of vintage Watermans:  A "Copper Ray" "Ink-Vue" with a stunningly flexible nib.

 

Sorry for the crummy cell phone photos...

DingDingDingDingDing!   Today, I'm having fun with a birthday present...  OK, I've been having fun with it most of the week, but I finally stopped long enough to grab my camera...

The Schrade Tactical Pen

Yes, you can sign your legal paperwork afteryou kubotan the bejeezus out of some *BLEEEEEEEEP* who desperately deserved it...  The nib is fine, and a little springy, so, your signature can even have your accustomed flourish...

fpn_1419120425__20141220_190431.jpg

Honestly, I have only used the writing aspect of it; hope I never need any other purpose, but, it does have the feel of a solid tool...

 

It fits my grubbies quite nicely (comparable in size to a TWSBI 580), and lays down a great (albeit fine) line.  Not too wet, not too dry.  Not flexy, but, while a springy nib, it is overall quite a solid pen.  It does weigh down my shirt pocket a bit, but, I am definitely digging it!


Be forewarned... I will eye-bang the bejeezus out of your pens...
Never play leapfrog with a unicorn...
