  1. Since Omas and Visconti now have their own threads devoted to the topic, I thought there should be an Aurora thread for which pens you are using today. Let's get some eye candy going! --And since I now have an Aurora Optima again, here is mine! I wasn't able to upload a pic from my computer, so here is a link to the image: http://imgur.com/a/tcDL5
  2. Hi, I am looking to get a daily use pen. I want a pen which is lightweight and writes fine and smooth (preferably high ink capacity and nib dries slowly). I am a graduate student and will use the pen to write a lot of math symbols/proofs mostly on HP laserjet 24lb papers for long time. I have Pilot Decimo F, Lamy 2000 EF and Metropolitan F. I use VP when I take notes in class since it is retractable, but when I need to write for long time, I cannot use it since it is kind of heavy for me. Thus, I have recently bought Lamy 2000 EF for long time writing. I like the weight and the size of Lamy 2000, but it writes too thick for me even though it has extra fine nib. This one writes thicker than Decimo Fine. I really like the smoothness of Decimo. I think it is smoother than Lamy 2000 EF and Metropolitan F. The only problem I have with it is the weight. I think I like Japanese fine size nib (not sure about other brands since I only have two Pilot pens). Can anyone recommend me some good pen for me under $150? (I prefer no vintage pen) Thanks,
  3. Here is my Montblanc rotation team (The Oscar Wilde is visiting Germany due to piston issues). The one that have gotten more use over the years is the Agatha, followed by the 149 and Dumas. Jose

    Need Advice Regarding A Lamy Safari!

    (This is my first post on here - eep!) I ordered a Safari (neon yellow, EF nib) a few days ago on Amazon, and long story short, I wound up trying to cancel the order but it was too late and now I will be getting the pen and converter some time in the next week. My question is this - should I keep the pen or send it back? (Assuming money isn't the issue...) Some background that might be helpful: I already have a medium Platinum Preppy ED, an EF Nemosine Singularity (which doesn't seem to write very consistently, at least not with Noodler's Heart of Darkness), and a handmade pen I bought on Etsy that has a F nib but writes just like the M preppyI don't mind the thicker line when I'm journaling or just writing for my own pleasure, but I am a physics grad student and thus for my notes I really need something that lays down a pretty fine, smooth lineAlso, for a pen to be any use for me while taking notes, doing homework, or grading, I also need to be able to have it sit for a few minutes at a time without being capped and then start right away again - realize this is probably a combination of pen and inkI have plenty of ballpoint pens that are ok for taking notes and grading, so I don't need a fp for those purposes, but if the Safari will do it I might be inclined to keep it. If not, though, I don't need another pen laying around that doesn't put down a very thin line because I have plenty of those (and I really love the one from Etsy, so I plan to use that one as my main non-schoolwork pen). Thanks in advance! :-)
