I am currently hesitating between two pens: a Karas Kustoms Ink with a fine gold Buck nib, black anodised section and tumbled raw aluminium or polished aluminium barrel or Sheaffer Targa silver or black with a gold nib also. Both are metal c/c pens and both come in the same price range (unless you look at the really expensive Targas). One is more classic, the other is more modern. One is slimmer and lighter the other is chunky and heavy without being Jinhao 159-kind of heavy. What I am looking for is a pen that I will love to carry around without fear of dropping it and destroying the finish
I got this in the mail today and was pleasantly surprised! I knew I had gotten a good deal (at less than $25 shipped) but I did not know it was this good of a deal! There was one blurry picture of the pen uncapped, just enough to tell that it was a 51. I figured it for a normal, black P-51 Aero. I need to swap out the nib and the cap isn't in great shape but still! Here is what I got: http://i.imgur.com/GZOoaOml.jpg
I'm a self confessed piston snob! Don't mind power fillers, or any other filling system so long as it's not a c/c! That was until I recently acquired two new Japanese pens, both of which are c/c are work great. Are we really being fair with our snobbery against the humble cartridge converter?
