What Pen are You Using Today?

A 2010 Q-Connect. Must be due a service by now - if I get it polished and get the chewed black plastic end replaced with a service one, will it affect the value significantly do you think? I would appreciate any guidance from you more experienced pen aficionados!

Sarcasm... no. I actually thought it quite brave of him to share his propensity toward oral fixation. And I applaud his honesty, notwithstanding the esoteric
delivery.

I do not have many pens that would rate as superb. This one does.

Second question... what is the flex like on those bad boys?

Thanks!

Simple taste. Never a fountain pen fan. Have Cross ballpoints but never cared for turning the barrel or its slender feel. Just give me an older Papermate with a good click and im fine.

There is a reseller in my hometown and he had the both of them in stock when i wanted them. I also ordered a decapod (not in stock) but when it came it turned out to be a disappointment (cap didn't line up).

I have on more Nakaya in order, a one off Heki Tamanuri with feather inlay, this should be delivered within 10 months

Still the Aurora 888P. I truly believe I'd be happy if it were my only fountain pen.

Bought my first MB pen the other week.

Wanted a Rolleball/Fineline setup.

Fell in love with the lines and design of the Victor Hugo LE pens.... Ended up with this one:
