I now own 6 Townsends...
A blue, a 10K gold, a black/silver finish, medalist and a ruby red, and a solid silver.
I find myself using the medalist more than anything else! The chrome hides the patina of daily use, and the gold seems to break up the shiny finish well. I find myself switching nibs out regularly, but always using the medalist.
Anyone have a favorite finish?
All the best to the Townsend fans out there!
