I have been interested in modern Duofold Centennials for a while now and am finally at the point where I would like to buy one.
How do the current production ones made in France compare with the older MKI version with the arrow nib? I can get both for around $250 each in solid colors (though some of the older marbled ones are really nice). The benefit of the French one is that it would be new and in red (orange) though I find I prefer the style of the nibs and trim on the older MKI to be better looking.
Does anyone have both and can compare the nibs? I believe the old MKI nibs were actually made by Parker where the current production is made by Waterman. Also the MKI has both 14kt and 18kt nibs.
