Waiting for the converter for my Shaeffer No Nonsense so I can actually, you know, write with it.   :)

Oh, I know this of myself

I assume as much for other people

Just got my Sailor King of Pen in the mail today... inked up with Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Kai

 

26169727_10100114856493761_1495896246999

 

In great contrast to my Sailor Imperial Black Pro Gear (also medium nib), this nib is crazy smooth, super wet, has a bit of flex/spring to it, and is a lot of fun to write with.  While the pro gear is more of a workhorse for me, as the nib is very stiff, this is more alive.  Amazing pen... glad I went with this instead of some others I was looking at for now.
