Conway Stewart makes, or should I say did make, one of the best pens in the world.

I unfortunately was only able to purchase two Conway Stewart pens. I own a Churchill Excalibur LE Fountain pen, and a Belliver Bracket Brown LE Fountain Pen.

Both of these pens are at the top of my list of favorite fountain pens. I prefer them over my Montblanc fountain pens. They both write so smooth with no issues with ink flow. The Churchill is a little on the lite side when it comes to heft (I prefer pen with some weight) but even with the Belliver being a smaller pen it has more mass to it and feels great in my hand (I think they add a brass sleeve in it for the heft). Like a lot of pens, both of these pens look way more beautiful in person than on the web or in the color supplements.

I was saving up to purchase the A Sterling Silver Conway Stewart FP but they sold out of the ones I liked. I guess there will never be another one. I hope someone will carry on the tradition of making Sterling Silver pens the way CS did because I would hate to see them die out.

This forced me to do a little hunting for a Solid Sterling Silver pen and that hunt led me to THE best fountain pen company in the world.....Onoto.

Yes!

Yard-o-led is on my list of wants. I saw on another thread a nice Yard-O-Led Vicroy Grand Victoria that I would love to have.

The very model I own. It is my daily pen; great choice!

+1 for YOL Grands. They simply work, year in & year out, while looking awesome. Swipe with a Sunshine cloth when they turn black & you're done.

I'm hesitant to pack sterling silver pens in these days of TSA incidents, so I haven't tested them on commercial airliners. Never had a burp back when I did the general aviation thing.
