I thought, with the Waterman Carene and the Eversharp Symphony having come in, that I was all out of pens to wait for this year.

 

Then Nakaya e-mailed me saying my Briar is on its way back to me, with the nib adjusted. I like the 3776 Century I picked up on Black Friday, which has a very similar shape, but I really am looking forward to having the Briar back.

Small lot of black pens (including two stylographs) coming in from the Bay of E -- can't wait to pull 'em apart and put 'em back together again!
