    Currently using a Visconti 'Van Gogh' fountain pen, and a Parker Sonnet 13 as a back up. Possibly looking at a Pelikan M600 for my next one

    You lucky son-of-a-gun. Which Van Gogh do you have? I wish I have a homo sapiens but my grant can only afford a couple Pelicans and my Puente de resistances the Caran D'Ache given to me Sir Prof, Patrick Derham. The Head-Master of Westminster School.

    After realising that my Lamy was at least 10 years old, I recently treated myself to a new Lamy Al-Star in black purple

    Perhaps try a cheapo Jinhao, they're like £2 but work pretty good.

    Don't really have a favourite! I do admire Bertrand Russell though.

    His ideology is quite profound with his idea of "the will to life" pretty similar to Prof. Sigmund Freud's work but with a lot more emphasis on human attraction. A bitter man nevertheless but a man of greatness and I strive to be. Plus Charles Dickens was fond on him )))))))))

    Indeed, you can get a pretty inexpensive set from The Pen Shop, I'll even give you my discount.
    Thanks for the offer, but I have my own calligraphy set ☺
    I also use Lamy Joy which is good for a quick calligraphy message.

    Can't believe anyone would use anything else, they write so much more nicely. There's something rewarding about refilling them from a bottle, adjusting the nib, and generally putting more care and time into the utensil.

    I've got a 1950's Waterman CC, a Parker '77 Type 45 CT Classic, a Sailor 1911, Sheaffer Imperial Triumph ~80's/90's, Sheaffer Imperial I ~60's, and a Parker Chrome "Leadership" Frontier. I write with most of them regularly except for the Waterman CC because I don't want to rub off the original chalk markings, and the Imperial I because I need to buy a NOS squeeze filler as it's the only thing that will fit it. Some of my college friends have started using or gone back to using fountain's this year, so I'm quite glad to think that I might have had some positive influence! I hate lending fountain pens though, the peasants always seem to bend the clips...

    Hey hey, You just made a friend.
    I like working on vintage pens, there's this NOVA that a professor gave me in year 10 and it always leaks but boy that pen write like a dream. It's fantabulous.
    Whenever someone uses a pen with lever filler system they always play with it get ink everywhere and they always somehow make the nib feel gritty? Somehow. Peasants, please go play with your with your bics. Vintage Watermans are oooh.

    Woooop, I'm always up for friends. I remember what friends are. I think I read something about friends once. What's a friend?

    They're beautiful, I've never seen a lever fill pen like that in the plastic but they're pretty. Is the lever not prone to being unintentionally adjusted, in transit perhaps? I think the gritty nib is when people push down hard and get bits of paper in the nib, I found something similar happens with poorly adjusted/damaged nibs because they're sharp.
