I wanted to say 'Hello' as a new member.  In just the small time I have been a member of this 'network' I have been impressed with the members and their willingness to help and solve problems.  I look forward to learning more about fountain pens and contributing what knowledge I have acquired. 
 
I have recently returned to the US after spending two years in Vienna, Austria.  While there I apprenticed under one of the few remaining 'walk-in' vintage pen repair shops in the world!  It was a great experience and I learned a lot about the history and repair of fountain pens. We have opened an online store with some of our rare and refurbished European pens and offerings on pen repair.  If you have the time I would welcome any feed-back you have on our site.

What do you use for daily writing ?

I have a couple of 'daily writers'.  I have a custom made blue celluloid with a glass nib, (The celluloid and nib are both vintage.) that my good friend made for me. (Wiener Füllfeder Werkstätte)  I like to carry that one around because it starts a lot of conversations!  For around the house I have a German war-time production 'Perfekto' with a steel nib and 1930's (unable to read the name) with a cheap gold-plated two tone nib.  Both are button fillers that I repaired/refurbished.  They are not spectacular pieces, but a couple of the first pens I fixed, so I kept them for sentimental reasons.  All three write well and I enjoy using them.  https://drive.google...aFU&usp=sharing Feel free to take a look!

Those are some awesome pens you have for sale. The Matador Garant calls my name. I have never seen a glass nib other than the glass dip pens.
