I know how to buy pelikans... I just don't know how to stop.



That was my first Peli and the darn thing started reproducing on it's own. You would not believe the size nest I had to buy for them. I am scared to find out how long it takes to fill up a 21 drawer Hamilton type cabinet.

Just ordered a black Kaweco Sport Classic (extra-fine) from JetPens for my wife. She doesn't like her Parker 45 (medium) but is too polite to ask for another pen.

A few Parkers... a 75 Sterling Silver, a 25, a 180 and one unknown which I think is a 65. (pic below)

A pack of 10 Hero 616s

And last but not least a Pilot/Namiki Murex.

I really need to stop buying fountain pens. It's getting silly now.

Blue Visconti Rembrandt, F. I no longer have any working fountain pens, so it'll be my only pen for a little while.

Noodler's Ahab in Arizona (because if a pen is orange, yellow or red, I must have it, and that covers two of my favourite colours), since it seems like the filling mechanism is less maddening than the Flex pen (which I like, but I can't seem to get it more than half filled at any time). And I just ordered a Kaweco Ice Sport rollerball to try out. And a great big pile of fine-tipped gel pens, but I don't think they quite count for this question.

I'm writing an online serial thing. It's urban fantasy. And I have no idea how long it's going to run for.

Turns out its a Parker 61 MkIII. The cap was stuck on so badly that I ended up unintentionally unscrewing the jewel from the clip. All fixed up and writing smoothly now.

Oh despite me saying no more pens I do have one more on the way. A Graf von Faber Castell Guilloche... it was a bargain on Ebay I couldn't resist.

The Montblanc 24 started something bad... I've been writing with it for a couple weeks now and am waiting on a Montblanc 14, Montblanc 34, and a Montblanc 234 1/2G all to arrive. I think I'm going to need some new inks to balance things out!

I've been using the Kaweco Sport Classic for a couple days and it's brilliant. Still waiting for my Ranga pen to get here and I'm hoping the power outage hasn't affected the Indian post too drastically.

A MontBlanc 146. However, I am getting concerned as it was shipped last week and made it from Hong Kong to Australia in 26 hours.

Unfortunately, after checking the tracking it has apparently been getting transferred from the city next door to my local Post Office, for the last 5 days?

Please don't let this be a repeat of my Sailor Naginata Togi which disappeared last year.

A Chelpark Moti from FPR. I've also set snipes on a dozen vintage Montblancs. I fear a new bug has bitten me...

I'm waiting for a desk pen. I decided I wanted something for work, since I use my pens at work when I'm opening mail and figuring out who it goes to, when I write the names on the envelopes and stick the documents back inside. I always find myself either holding an uncapped pen during all of that, or constantly capping and uncapping it.

So it's a no-name desk pen, that I hope I can just stick the pen back in, do some mail lookup, and then take the pen back out!
