I am in the market for a new pen but am struggling with my decision.
I currently have:
-Lamy Safari - 1.1mm - fun daily user
-Lamy 2000 - EF - my favourite pen to use, comfortable, only wish a little broader nib
-Pilot Custom 74 - SF - ok to ink up and play with every so often, disappointed with size and weight of pen
-TWSBI 540 - B - like size and weight but do not pick this up as often as I had hoped
-Noodlers Ahab - love the size of the pen and find I use it as a novelty, not a daily writer
-Bexley Corona - F - love the size of the pen but have not been happy with the build quality, f nib is amazing from Binder and writes like a dream, close second behind my Lamy2000 for favourite writer
I am looking at the Sailor 1911 large and the Platinum President but am worried that I will not be happy with the size. (I think I am looking for a large pen)
Some things I am looking for:
-around $200 and under
-7-8 out of 10 wet writer
-convertor is ok as I like to change my inks often
-large size pen (as in big)
-large nib (I am ok with steel as I have been very impressed with the Bexley F nib)
Part of my struggle is that all of the things that I am currently looking for are the opposite of my favourite pen, the Lamy 2000. haha...I am second guessing myself and thinking I might just be better off with another Lamy 2000 in M....but that would not be furthering my collection...oh jeez.
Any recommendations, comments or words of advice will be greatly appreciated.
Also, please let me know what your next purchase is going to be and why.
