The girth and weight  and look of the Pelikan 800 Tortoise shell are perfect however, the length and price put that pen in the "love to love" category for me.

Parker 100. the gold/blue color is so pretty and the silhouette is amazing when posted, except that i cannot post it because it is way too heavy.

I would love to love a Pilot/Namiki VP, but the clip gets in the way of my grip. If Nakaya made a retractable-nib Piccolo (*laughs*), that...would be something.

I second this!

I bought one anyway and compromised with my grip.

Modern Pelikans. Lovely nibs, lovely looks... but just too light in the hand, they feel cheap!


Modern Italians. Lovely celluloids, nice nibs, but troppo bling! (The only one that seems to get it right is the Delta dolce vita  - it actually showcases the deep orange celluloid without shouting "Hey guys! look at all this gold plated stuff I've smothered the pen with!")

Too many pens, too little time!

The Visconti Homo Sapien. The grey barrel has never gone black for me even after many many hand lotion treatments and the dreamtouch nib is just mediocre. I really want to love a pen made out of volcano ashes or whatever it claims to be.
