Itís the Heritage Rouge et Noir Spider Metamorphosis Limited Edition 1906. Great weight and balance, and it writes like a dream. Itís thinner than more traditional MB FPs, but it is quite comfortable in the hand.

Pelikan Souveršn M800 Burnt Orange

I used this pen for the first time today. I wanted to get the M800 Renaissance Brown earlier but ended with the Burnt Orange instead while I was at the shop.

I used my Pilot Metro Fountain pen, my Lamy Safari in Petrol and tried out my new cheapo pen Jinhao X750. I’m waiting for Goulet to get stock of the Pelikan M200 in green so I can buy one

Hommage to Homer capless RB. This pen functions like a ballpoint, but writes so unbelievably smooth. I enjoy writing with this pen.

It was time to activate another Writer's Edition

It didn't make sense to put it off any longer. Enter the 2005 Montblanc Miguel de Cervantes writer's edition fountain pen with MB toffee brown ink. You guys have already seen my incoming on this. I am sharing my writing sample after inking this beauty for the first time today.

I added a new addition to my collection today. I’m a rollerball junkie so I wanted to add a ballpoint to my collection. This ceramic was the most comfortable and felt the best in my hand so it had to come home with me. I have been collecting pens for over 20 years and have tried my hardest to get my wife to use a “real” pen at work. As an executive she’s in meetings all day writing and such. Well I was finally able to find something she just had to have. She totally loves Marylin Monroe so it was pretty easy to convince. Hope she enjoys it as much as I do all of my pens.

This pen was shown to me yesterday while I was looking for a new pen. Although I liked the uniqueness of this instrument, I just couldnít get the feel down with it. So I ended up with a ceramic ballpoint.

The way I hold a pen, my fingers fit right into the contours of the horse shape and grooves if I hold it just right. The ceramic Starwalker you picked up is a beauty. Congrats on that and the Monroe for the Misses.

I used a Nemosine Singularity. Trying out some new brands and this was one I didnít own. Surprisingly nice for a $20 pen. I love the Noodlers black ink I put in it. Quick drying and writes nice
