OP specified vintage.

 

I did see that, but the M100 still came to my mind. To be fair, the M100 came out in 1985, which was almost 30 years ago. So I think it may depend on one's view on what is vintage.

 

That being said, the OP could consider a new nib (in B, BB, OB or OBB) for their M400 that would negate the necessity to buy a new pen and still add that extra bit of flair to their signature.

A good suggestion.

Of course I do. eBay, $85.50 plus shipping. 

Where? The clear blue? I'd be all over that deal.

Esterbrook with a signature nib. Done, annnnd done

 

J in your favorite color with a 9284 stub.

 

If you want to spend more, get a Parker 51 and have Greg Minuskin retip a stub for you.

I would also suggest the Aurora Optima. It's small enough,wide enough

yet light enough that your hand won't tire from doing too many signat-

ures.

I've got several pens for signatures:

- 1950's MB with a flexible OBB (stub) nib - produces a very bold signature, but takes quite some time to dry

- Lamy 2000 with a ~1.1mm semiflex stub nib from an older Lamy-model (27?) - always loaded with BSB, those signatures really stand out :-)

- any other fountain pen will do if I'm just co-signing with others (blending in, not good when you're the only one jumping off the page)

- ballpoint for quick/lots of signatures when I don't read the text and just flip the pages - avoids smearing.

 

You should bear in mind that the signature takes longer to dry if you use a B/BB. I only recommend those nibs if you really have enough time so that the ink can dry properly. Otherwise (like with signature folders) just stick to medium nibs or ballpoints.

 

For what you have written: I can recommend a 100N with a B nib. They are a bit flexible so that you can produce a bold signature if needed or a normal one if desired.


Greetings,
Michael
