Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Wonderful pen and review, George. Congratulations. Of the ones I've had the fortune to briefly test, the nibs fo the original Legacy were as responsive as the PFM (II and V). It was surprising to find that although fatter, the PFM was of the same size than the Imperial, if not shorter.

Congratulations. I prefer steel capped PFMs like this one and find them very rerpsentative of the Cold War era.

    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?

Nice pen. However, the nib is not a Triumph nib; it is an inlaid nib.

PFM II is really a fine fountain pen. I also have a blue barrel, metal cap copy with a medium nib. It's one of my best writers. Mine is from 1962 and I also have a fine nib black with steel trim PFM I (1960) which makes a nice design impression. And my burgundy PFM III is a nice writer, but the plastic cap came with a few chips at the top of the cap, which, I assume, is common for a 1959 plastic cap. Have thought of getting IV and V PFMs but my PFM acquisition syndrome is satisfied with the three I have.
