Going old school tonight...

 

A beautiful Waterman 42 with the usual fine, flexy nib.  Been writing with it all evening, while watching the terribly "propped" History Channel "The Men Who Built America."   A great pen.

It might take a while before I'm able to take pictures and post them, but... this page shows them very, very nicely:

 

Visconti Homo Sapiens - The coolest piece of rock.

 

Bought my VHS in Bronze after visiting that page, and now the Steel has joined it. Lovely pair of pens. Mine are factory F and Stub.

They look awesome! Thanks.

Pink Pilot VP with J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen to underline/highlight, Edison Beaumont in Butterfly Garden with J. Herbin Violette Pensee for notes in the margins.  And probably my fall SE Edison Nouveau from Goulet Pen Company, with Montblanc Toffee, to write in my journal later on.  It is a lovely fall day here today and that pen goes with fall like a pumpkin spice latte.

Sheaffer Triumph -- what a lovely daily use pen this is.  Simple and elegant without being flashy.

GORGEOUS safety pen!  I have one made in Italy (with the usual Italian super-beautiful floral details on the clip --see photo), and it's so great to write with.  I'll bet yours is splendid, as well!  Certainly lovely from the outside...   :D

TWSBI 580 Diamond in the American Flag motif with a EF. Loaded with Kon-Peki. My trainee looked at it and said "gee, I hate ballpoints, too!" and "this pen has a good weight! I like it!" So another convert begins. I wrote out 25 thank you cards today and it was a pleasure to use this pen (I treated myself when Goulet had them briefly oh so briefly on special.)
