Statesman Lifetime snorkel, black, palladium silver nib, mid-late 1950s, with Pilot Iroshizuku tsuyu-kusa ink. Nib's a little scratchy because I haven't worked on it yet, but it lays down a lovely line of ink and when you turn it over, becomes extra-fine :D

Sheaffer Sentinal, green with 14K gold triumph nib... okay, okay you got me- it hasn't arrived yet. But I can't wait to learn the way of the Snorkel. I own a Lamy safari (petrol; M nib) and a Pilot Metro (orange; Italic). How big of a difference, in terms of upgraded writing enjoyment, is there from a Lamy and Pilot to a Triump nib and Snorkel mechanics?

Cheers

Nice, do you have a lot of line variation with the oblique nib?

@TheMajestic - yes, a good amount. It is a pretty sharp nib. I have one other oblique and a stub and all give good variation.

Sheaffer Balance with military clip. I just fixed the vac-filler last week and it's a nice writer for an extra-fine. (I don't usually like XF nibs but here we are.) I believe the #3 nib is not original to the pen, but I care not a whit because it's smooth and bouncy.

A black PFM III with a EF-F nib that I picked up from Sherrell Tyree at the Colorado Pen Show this last weekend.  It is filled with Akkerman #8, also from the show.
