Green Platinum Balance with green ink. There's a bit of a scandal at work right now regarding the color green (long story...); I was being a (subtle) rebel.

An Edison Collier in Persimmon Swirl 1.1mm italic nib which just arrived this morning. It is now filled with Diamine Ancient Copper.
Really pleased with it - only problem is I keep staring at it coz it's so beautiful.

Today, I've mostly written with the Caran d'Ache Varius (filled with Iroshizuku ama iro) and with the Faber Castell Intuition (filled with Edelstein Saphir). Tomorrow ?  I hope I will receive that Pen I've found in ebay (Montegrappa Symphony). I know which one I've used today but never know which one I'll used tomorrow as I'm always looking for The Pen ...

I was writing a letter to a pen pal and started off with my Bayard LE4 with Akkerman Passage Blauw and ended with my Bayard Fit filled with Poussiere de Lune. I did rinse out the former and it's all ready to go back into the pen wrap until its next use. I LOVE my Bayards!

My all time everyday pen: Black Parker Sonnet with fine nib.

I am also using a Gold Parker 75 with a extra fine nib.

I have two Parker 51s and a Parker 180.

The only non-Parker on my desk is a Pilot with medium nib.

Platinum Plaisir in Gunmetal with F nib.  Inked up with Stipula "the david" Black ink from a pen show sample.  I believe it is actually Stipula Ebony Black.  Smooth writing combo.

I've just received my Montegrappa Symphony found on Ebay .... It's fantastic !!!!    I wonder which one will be my next one .... Do you sometimes have the same question about your next fountain pen  when you 've just received one?

My Montblanc 149 90th Anniversary with fine nib and Montblanc Mystery Black ink.  

 

I think it's impossible to find a smoother fine nib than this.

Haven't decided yet.  I may just grab one at random before leaving for work, though I'm leaning toward one of the Sheaffers.
