I dont go to school with expensive pens.

Today I was carrying a Parker 21(1/2 blue black skrip 1/2 black waterman) and a Lamy Vista with blue cartridges( that FADE!).

When I go to something elegant( a small party, a café..) I use a Pelikan 400 ( with parker washable royal blue super quink) and a Parker "51"vac demi( with waterman black) :D

A blue Levenger True Writer, medium nib.

A clear blue demo Waterman Kultur, fine nib.

Cost me about $15 from eBay with shipping. I'm not associated with this eBay seller blah blah blah...

Both pens are using Levenger Cobalt ink, which is a nice rich dark blue, but not as good as my favorite, PR American.

Today I met a new customer. He was using a MB Generations fountain pen in black. Pity that MB discontinued that line of pens, since I think that they are nice lookers (at a high price point though).

My pens today are a Pelikan 400 with an OM nib, a MB 342 with an OM nib (a wonderful nib!) and a Sheaffer Valiant TD with a F nib. The Sheaffer has become too thin for my hand unfortunately. Not the fault of the sheaffer, but of my hand of course :)

As I glance over at my pen block I'm shocked. All modern. How did that happen?

Today I have used:

Pelikan 320 filled with Noodler's Cayenne
Columbus Academia filled with Richard's faux Tanzinite
Parker Falcon 50 filled with Aurora Black
My two standby Lamy Safari - Flame filled with Noodler's Cayenne, Red filled with Noodler's Ottoman Rose.
Red Carbonesque VP filled with Aurora Blue

At least there's my Moore BHR ringtop filled with Waterman's Black.

I think I may just be an oddity on this board. I pick one pen, and usually just use that one pen through the day, unless there is an odd occurrance that forces me to use another.

That being said, todays was my Parker "51" Aero. Black with Lustraloy cap.
