Waiting for the drafting mechanical pencils and the lead holder of the 600 line from Rotring would be off-topic?

Patience is giving up on me!

:D

Just ordered a left-foot obliqe 0.7 cursive italic nib for my VP from Richard Binder :)


What a strange world we live in, where people communicate by text more than ever before, yet the art of proper handwriting is seen as a thing from the past.

A Kameco Dia 2 w/chrome and a fine point. I really like the style of that pen. But then, I'm a retro grouch.

That section makes my fingers hurt just looking at it.  I really like some of Levenger pens, but that one looks more like a torture device to me!  ;-)

I'm waiting on a Lamy 2000. It's my first serious fountain pen. First gold nib, first piston filler, etc. I'm very excited.

Don't know the pen myself, but this points are so small it will not really hurt but provide a good grip even when perspiring.

I was, of course, exaggerating to make a point that I think the section is too aggressive, not that it would actually hurt.  Forgive my hyperbole. :P

Heh.

 

That pen reminds me of the Rotring 600 (but with 7 sides, WTH?), that's why I jumped on the deal. We'll see.

NOS Pelikan M800 Red Striated.

Love those M800 pens. This will be my fifth.The others being a black, a green striated, a clear demonstrator and a green demonstrator from the 1990s. They are all daily workhorshorses in rotation. I use them for everything - even the crossword puzzle in our sunday newspaper.

Awesome, I ordered another 14 (OBB) to my list of pens on their way to me today. I agree 100%, the wing nibs are great!
