Thank you daeng!  It is an M900 Black, M nib.  My sweet wife bought me the Ocean Swirl for Christmas which left me room to buy myself this on a Black Friday sale.  One of three "grail pens" is now in the box  B)

 

LOVE your K800 Tortoise!  Congrats to you too sir!

That's a truly stunning and lovely Toledo, Bill! Congratulations! What nib size and how does it write?

Thank you.  I love the weight of it, and the fineness of the engraving.  I got this in Medium because I discovered that was my <least> represented M800 sized nib  :lol:   I checked it with a loupe, gave it a good rinse, then filled it with Aquamarine... mmmmmm, it's a great writer!  I have a couple letters to catch up on and this will be my pen for that.  Looking forward to a few pages of "getting to know you, getting to know allll about you".

 

(pictures tomorrow, perhaps)

A (slightly?) used blue-striped M400; M nib :( but the price was very reasonable :) . It's one of the newer ones with the etched-metal logo, should be here next week.

And ... a brand new M400 red-striped! B nib!  :(  :(  But, as it's brand new, I should be able to get a nib exchange through Chartpak.

 

That's my Xmas shopping sorted.

How about the 2016 SE Grand Place?  I love that pen!  Or the Burnt Orange from 2015, followed by this year's Ren Brown...

 

Of course, if you aren't limiting yourself strictly to SE issues, the Stresemann is a wonderful pen as well.

 

What?  No I didn't forget the demonstrators, I just don't like them enough to recommend them  :)

Thank you for the recommendations. :)

I'm looking for nice, well-lit pictures of Grand Place before looking for places to buy it from at somewhat reasonable price. But it is on my radar.

About the other 2: Renaissance Brown and Burnt Orange, Renaissance brown was somewhat meh and I bought the Conid Monarch Bulkfiller which is also orange.

I don't like demos either, they are very messy and I have to be extremely careful about inks staining them. :|

It has been a while that I don't post here.

But, there are a few birds flying with the intent of nesting at my house:

 

- Two M805 Ocean Swirl B 

- M605 White Transparent M

- M1000 Green B

- M760 OM

 

To be honest, the majority is not really flying, but resting at customs for a while...

I hope they break my bad streak with pens (of any brand) lately.
