In addition to my 149 (now with Quink BB), I'm using a 1970s Sheaffer school pen inked up with Sheaffer Brown ink. Just got it in the mail from ebay for $3.

I couldn't resist the pen as it's the same model as the first FP I ever used. So its been a bit of a trip down memory lane today.

Today, the Waterman Sérénité and the Pelikan Place de la Concorde. A really French day :D

The Place de la Concorde is my most "uplifting" pen, and the Sérénité by far the most comfortable.

Five pens are inked:

Dani Trio Mikado-size Matte Ebonite with stub nib, filled with Noodler's Blue Black. A definitive winner.

Omas Ogiva (full size) burgundy with medium nib, filled with Noodler's Sawaro Wine. This is such a smooth experience...
Posted Image

Pelikan M200 Anthracite, stub nib by Pendemonium with back Quink. Excellent!
Posted Image

Sheaffer Imperial in Cadmium Yellow, with fine nib and 1/2 Montblanc red + 1/2 Sheaffer King's Gold. Yes, I am proofreading papers these days!
Posted Image

Pilot VP with Pendemonium's stub nib and Noodler's Standard Brown. Lovely!

I must add that I am extremely happy with the nibs I bought from Pendemonium. They turned pens that rarely entered my rotation in all time favorites.

Today I took two oldies but goodies - a black Sheaffer Imperial Touchdown with a springy (almost semi flex) wet medium nib, and my trusty Parker 75.

Hey great minds think alike!

I ended up using my new (to me) cisele Parker 75 filled with Waterman Blue and a copper-finished, stub-nibbed Sheaffer Legacy 2 that was filled with PR Copper Burst. I also ended up doodling with my black Sheaffer Intrigue with a great stub nib.

The Legacy 2 combo sounds fantastic. Glad to hear you picked up a cisele 75. I can't say enough about how much I like that pen. I thought I'd never like a small pen until I started carrying it around.

Today it's the same Balium Core. Happens to be the only pen I was using today. Of course, it's filled with PR Shoreline Gold. :P

Today, I am using a Reform medium nib filled with Noodlers La Colour Royale. It is a good pen to take during out door activities.
