Starting from the box, top left - Montegrappa Turtle Brown (M), MB Meissen White porcelain B nib, MB Sterling Silver Barley with MOP MB star and a 0.035ct G VVS2 channel set diamond in the clip. Next is a Jules Verne B-nib (Note: on loan from a very special friend
), two caps for the 149 (clip engraved) and Dumas that are in my 149 pen stands - both B nibs. Back to the box- 149 OBBB nib, 149 Helmut Jahn Special Ed with OB nib. The right most 149 is my favourite and was a gift from my late father when I was 15 - it started it all! Has a 14C fine nib, with long tines dated to circa 1980s.
Tray from the very left: glimpse of my only ballpoint, the 100th Anniv starwalker, Agatha Christie Vermeil Ed. 4810 B-nib, Agatha Christie Sterling Silver B-nib, Octavian B-nib, Boheme Marron B-nib - soon going to a friend as I'm getting my Montegrappa Extra 1930 Bamboo Black back in return so this is a re-swap. Next, Sailor 1911 Naginata Togi (M), Parker Duofold Centennial in Black/Gold (M), new, and marble blue (M) and was my Dad's. Far right, Pelkian M1000 (F).
I've got several of the older pieces reviewed on YouTube
as well. Hoping to do a new review of all the recent pieces starting with the Meissen, Agathas, Dumas, and Octavian.
