The other very, very scarce color is periwinkle, which is a blue that runs toward violet.

This thread has a photo of a vermilion pen so here's a look at fiesta red. These two colors -- to my eyes -- are almost the same.

This is a collection of Triumph-nib pens in the original Snorkel colors (leaving out only black). The unusual aspect of these pens is that they have the new color-matched sections. Such pens are uncommon, but even less common, BTW, are the open-nib versions.

I have just scored a Valliant burgundy with the same color section. BTW, what snorkel model has the largest triumph nib?

I'm pretty sure they're all the same size. I know they're all the same diameter because they all have the same section or coupler; and comparing length I find no difference there either. My flex nib looks longer than the rest but it's an illusion caused by Sheaffer's narrowing the tines to achieve flex.

Obviously I'm a big fan of the Snorkel, but I am especially partial to those with color-matched sections. Fiesta red is the only color I like better with a black section, and if you throw in a two-tone nib it actually makes me swoon.
