Hey, that is true. (Collections usually have some kind of theme, like € coins, or every colour of Kaweco Al-sport)  :ninja:

often is said by the guy (gal) who has more than one of multiple brands or models....

 

Personally? six Parker 45's (including two Flighters and a desk set), two 51's, three Pelikan M200's, and a handful of Esterbrooks, which can be curated more than one way. (SJ, J, LJ) or red SJ, black LJ, blue transitional J and black, gray, green, copper J's. Which accounts for all colors, but in Double Jewel J's I need red and blue.

No, there was nothing important in the post today.

What's your favourite ink - I'd love to try it...?

Ah, well that would be Parker Penman Sapphire, or maybe Racing Green and good luck with that.

The only reason I bought these extra 12-pen cases was to rearrange my pens better.

But I need those [22 / insert your number here] pens and inks!

 

I haven't dared scribble on that [Clairefontaine / insert favorite brand here} notebook, it's too perfect.

"When will you have enough fountain pens?"

"After the next one I buy."  

"You said that the last time!"
