Hello! I'm trying to collect white/ivory pens, but I don't want to have doezens of cheap jinhaos and lingmos, or other cheap brand, and also not extremely expensive one. I might like the statue of zeus pelikan a lot, but it's too expensive for me to be comfortable using it daily, everywhere. Well I guess I'm not trying to collect them, but to own a few nice ones. I own 3 right now (A caran d'ache leman, a montegrappa fortuna, and the Pelikan m600 pink, which is mostly white), I will definitely buy the white tortoise, and I have also another 3-4 pens on my radar right now, and all of them cost exactly the same (+/- 10$), maybe the sailor a little more. Which one should I buy, if I could only buy one. It doesn't matter my prefferences on what I like, I want to know what is more appealing to everyone else.

Are you buying these pens for collecting or for writing? Pelikan for untroubled writing. The others for display and filling out a collection.

 

I have a sub-collection of red pens. Most are just dustables, though.

Bexley Pen Company makes great pens and have a few white ones that are great to use and good to look at.

To write with them, of course. I even sold some pens (rollerbals), extremely cheap just because they were collecting dust, and I hate useless things. I don't want to own 50+ pens and write with each one only 7 days a year. 10-20 is enough variety for me, that's why I want to buy only pens that deserve it.

I know that pelikans are great writers, but I kinda feel their section too short in the 400, 600 series, and the rest are not white. I wonder what the intuition feels in the hand, it has no threads, and the ribbed ivory is extremely beautiful, in my opinion.

I try to restrict myself on buying pens that are available in my country, without ordering them overseas.

The pen that I am enjoying using the most right now is a Sheaffer VFN. It's quite cheap (sells for ~10 USD over here) and a little slim but feels good and writes nicely. It's a little unusual in that it has an attractive matte finish, where most of my pens tend to be glossy. Although I haven't seen it in person, they do have a white version. Something to consider perhaps?
