Hi! My first fountain pen was a gift-- a nice little piston-fill Pelikan. I used it heavily at first but I ended up storing it for more than a decade. European nibs are wider than I like, and piston-fills are a pain to deal with. The first pen I bought for myself was a Lamy Safari; it was a very pretty blue. It's a perfectly decent pen with a grip that I don't find ergonomic at all. I made the jump to nicer pens a couple of years ago and fell for Pilot in a big way. I started with a fine-nib Pilot Metropolitan, loved the pen, then branched out to a Custom Heritage 91 in soft-fine. It's still my favorite pen. I ended up getting two more Metropolitans for work, and a Prera because it's almost the same size as the Stargazer (which is gorgeous but on second thought, not a good fit for me-- so I'm glad I started with a cheaper pocket pen). I splurged on a fine-nib CH91 in tsuki-yo color because the blue is so pretty...I just wish that version came in extra-fine. I'm not a collector; at this point I just want to use the pens I've got. I should probably find a new home for the ones I'm not using...
