So far this morning I have used a Lamy Nexx (Teal cap) and a Blue Carbonesque Pilot Vanishing Point with the 1.1 stub nib (it just came in the mail, so I am playing with it).

Mostly old yellow Lamy Safari 1.5 nibbed with Iroshizuku Ku-jaku and either yellow Visconti Van Gogh Maxi F with the same ink or Pelikan M1000 F with Edelstein Topaz. Rarely MB 146 F and MB Toffee Brown. The rest is uninked :)
