I have found over the years that I prefer metallic pens than plastic/resin/acrylic ones. It is probably due to the cold feeling and added weight, though I have found brass pens to be too heavy. The metal > plastics is not a hard-fast rule but that is indeed my preference. Probably my favourite material in a fountain pen is the matte black non-slippery material of the Faber Castell E-motion. I was hoping that we could make a shortlist of nice metallic pens in this thread, while I am also looking for suggestions for other pen purchases.
Those that I own are:
Faber Castell E-motion
Delike brass sport copy
Various Chinese Baoer and Jinhao pens (388, 3035, 159, x750, x450, etc)
Others known to me:
Pilot Vanishing point
Pilot Metal Falcon - never tried or held this one
Penbbs pens - metal is a bit too slippery for me
Hero H718 - never tried, but seems very heavy from reviews and documented weight
Ensso Italia - looks like a beast that I would love
There are also a large amount of Waterman pens, which I have never really delved into but would like to in the future if people think their modern pens hold up.
What are your favourites?
PS. While I love metallic pens, I am not a fan of slippery metal sections. Thankfully, there are some pens with really nice metal non-slip sections but that is relatively rare in my experience.
