Sometimes in spite of researching the hell out of things on the web small details escape; in this case I hadn't realized the Sailor Pro Gear Standard was smaller than even my shortest M400... No complaints though, luckily it's still big enough for my large hands, the section is nice and thick and the nib is a dream... So in case this helps someone out there...

I assume you have them (L to R) Sailor, Pelikan, Parker, Waterman? Is that correct? With them all being black, it makes it a bit more difficult....

 

Nice pens anyway.

Yes, it's hard to tell the size when only the pen is pictured, with nothing next to it for scale. I learned this when my M250 arrived and I saw how relatively petite it is; like pseudo, I was fortunate that it fits my hand well unposted.


It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Thanks, yup, that's the order, it's easier to make them out by their nibs.
