I really like the look of the Excellence A2!

And I understand that they are really well-made, and that even the steel nibs are a joy to use.

I was thinking of buying the 'Evergreen' in CT, and paying more to get the two-tone gold nib.

But your pen also looks really good.

 

It's hard to pick one!

Thanks! The Evergreen is a really good color! I've been contemplating getting an older Excellence A or B for my collection in Evergreen, if I can find a nice one second-hand. Or I may break my 'one per model' rule and get another A2 anyway!

 

And Diplomats are, IMO at least, very well made and their nibs always top-notch. Smooth with just the tiniest hint of feedback. They are big nibs and quite stiff, though, as is the trend these days, I suppose. Their steel nibs are really very, very good and a lot of people say that there is not a whole lot of reason to pay the significantly higher price tag to add a gold nib. I can't say that I disagree, to be honest.

 

This particular one (bought last year) is slightly softer as you might expect from gold. Certainly softer than the 18k nail on my Parker Sonnet from the 90s. The one I just got (bought on FPD) on a LE Aero Volute seems to be less soft, but I haven't compared them side-by-side yet.
