Armand.D posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopHello everyone To be clear I am searching for a new pen around ~100€ to replace my Lamy 2000, which finally doesn't suits me. I found it too heavy for daily use in high-school + as I am lefty, I didn't find it comfortable enough.My reference pen was during one year the Lamy Safari (wet F), not the best ink capacity but the best comfort I found among others (parker sonnet, 45, 2000, fpr) and the best facility of use ; it's just reliable - solid - working. I) So what's essential for my pen is : 1 - Snap Cap : This is a must for me in fast note-taking, I just don't really like the screwing-type. 2 - Comfort : Anything close to the triangular section of the Safari is welcome, and I say it now : I don't like textured ones. Otherwise I prefer pens coming with a mat finish, less sweat is better. 3 - Nib Feeling : I wrote one year with a wet Fine nib, and judging my experience from the semi-hooded of the 2k, any Western medium is ok.. I just prefer normal nib shapes → hoodeds are not very practical for my writing-style (between side/over-writer). At 100€ I don't really mind for the gold nib, I think that a reliable firm-smooth nib should do the trick. II) Notes : I prefer to avoid Japanese pens for their nib-size system (I have three pilot's and I find the mediums too thin).. But if you have japaneses snap-caps with good M/B nib, yes ! (I would like to hear about the capless/decimo comfort). III) To sum up : That's what comes to my mind first about choosing my new pen. Keep in mind, "Reliability - Comfort - Solidity" = my main principles. I didn't have the time yet too highlights some pens, but I will update the thread, so don't hesitate with recommendations. PS : The Aurora Ipsilon might be interesting. → Thank you ! Armand.D
