Well, the problem is that Scribo has gone with very, very expensive pens.  Leonardo has not a single pen that is as expensive as the "Feel" pen, which is apparently their only model. 

 

When your fountain pen costs more than $500, it really has to be special.  I am not willing to find out how special.  I prefer to buy three Leonardo MZ pens and have money left over.

Leonardo has had several above that price range.  They are limited editions and usually of special materials.

Ive been thinking the same, except I dont really want three Leonardo pens. Im enjoying my Positano a lot because its not overpriced, the steel nib writes surprisingly well, and the filling system is kind of playful (its a converter but you can pretend for a moment that its not ...)

What?  Save your money for other things?  I'm not sure I can understand that... :D
