I’ll only buy pens with stub or italic nibs now.

Have no idea what you're talking about.  :rolleyes:

"I have everything I wanted! I feel like my pencil case/ collection is completed", immediately followed by the fatal "What more could I want?"

:(  :rolleyes:

 

This thread made me laugh a lot! :D

I'm 69 and I'm sick of pens.  I don't want any more pens. 

 

I just need that one more old no longer made Montblanc converter for my old black plastic threaded 144 that can't use the new converters.  I know there's one in the pen and two new ones in the box, and yeah, I'm 69 and converters last about ten years, but I need three or four spares.

 

Oh, and I need that new black section for that old 144 so I can use the new converters when the old ones are used up.

 

The 144 nib and feed don't really fit right into this new black section.  Looks like something for a Mozart, with shorter thread part.  GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
