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

Well that depends what for, son (and possibly what phase the moon is in).

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

Those new Esterbrook’s sure have nice boxes.
I recall hearing that...

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!"
"Well, I didn't say how soon after..."

I only have pens in all the rooms in the house except one [ the bathroom ].
Even then I can't find one that works......
