Thanks to both of you. I like dogs but I don't think they'd do well here as we have coyotes and very nasty raccoons in the area. A cat, at least, is content to stay indoors.

Here's a shot of the two-tone Fine nib.

I'll need to get a pic, but I'm using a newly acquired Relief 12, which is the best of Conway Stewart and Esterbrook all in one.

286 & 475, both black. I think the 286 is filled with peacock blue (came in the pen). Both are excellent writers

What color, the pen? Cracked ice in black is always nice:D

 

One is Red, next is Green plus as an added bonus Dandy in smoke.

 

Sorry for the bad picture

Must improve my photography!

The colours are all over the place, the pen is actually blue/grey and the ink is a darker red.

I always enjoy reading this thread.

Thanks.

388 is on my list since I completed the 36 striped set. Hatched seem impossible to find :s

 

It's good to see a sample written text :)

I'm using a freshly restored CS 28 Burgundy Hatch, and I really like it. The cap jewel looks like it's possibly not original, and a little offset, but everything is in place securely.

Yesterday I acquired a black 475 which I have since cleaned and serviced. There are a lot of these in NZ, and many of them have passed through my hands! Every one I have had has been a great writer. This one came with an added bonus, a silver Life-Long pencil made by W H Sutton and apparently marketed by Conway Stewart from 1933.

Today, I am mostly using...

 

27755331600_c9ae3cf1ac_c.jpg

 

 

...a 58 pen and 33 pencil set.

The Duro 58 nib writes with a very smooth, very juicy medium line, which isn't ideal for the Moleskine notebook. Also, because of the flow, the line tends to spread to be more of a broad.

 

The pencil now has Yard-o-Led HB refills.

 

It's a great set. :D
