  1. Most people I see on this forum own many pens, even if they are not avid collectors. And most people seem eager about 'rotating' them and using them one after the other, enjoying the variety and fun of multiple fountain pens. Many reviewers seem to be able to compare what one pen feels like in comparison to a range of other pens. The way I have seen many elder generation people that I know who use fountain pen, they have often used a pen for decades and shift to a different pen only when the old pen is irreversibly damaged or lost. I think it was because: (1) pens were instruments of daily use and utility (rather than a hobby / collection), (2) good pens were less affordable and you have to hold on to it as much as possible, (3) nibs become smoother and best fit to one's writing style; long term fountain pen users hesitate to give their 'used' pens to someone else because of this reason. Everybody have their own way of 'loving' fountain pens - a classification is as follows: Some have multiple pens inked and in use at each given time.Some have one pen inked and in use, and they change to another pen after the ink gets over, and they rotate pens.Some prefer to use *only* one pen (even if they may try out and collect multiple pens).I have used pens in all the 3 patterns above - and I think I belong to the third category. Does anybody in this forum write with *only* one fountain pen primarily (whether or not you collect and try more)? If so, which pen is your heartthrob? Or do you actively write with multiple pens?
