    Waterman Tender Purple in a black Aero 51 with possibly the smoothest nib in the universe.

    I have found that several 51 pens I have are smoother than any other type of pen I have, including Montblanc, Pelikan and Waterman. Most of the 51s I have are sublime, whether octanium or 14K, on demi or full size vintage 51s. I have really noticed the superior smoothness of the 51 nibs lately, after putting away most of my other pens. Except for Esterbrook. I don't usually use pens made before 1948, when the 51 aero came out.

    Parker 51 aerometric, midnight blue, frosted cap, US medium. Tuned exactly to my taste by Greg Minuskin. My favorite pen.

    Ah, since you ask: a 51 Special with a fine-to-medium Octanium nib, which is too fine for me on many papers, but pleasant on really smooth although somewhat absorbent papers. Needing less of a qualified description, a 51 Demi Special with a generous medium Octanium nib that just writes in the most satisfactory way. Pelikan 4001 black in both pens.

    Parker Insignia, red, goldlike cap, medium. The cap is some kind of gold plated. I like these, but just sold 2 on ebay. They work well with a Sonnet section and nib .

    Yep. I also have one with a Sonnet section and nib. Mine has a handsome marbled color. But I like my 51s best.

    Tonight... a Parker 45 Flighter (1964~1970) with a Medium before I switched over to an XF nib. As well as a Lucky Curve (pre-duofold) Jade.

    A forest green 51 with a gold filled cap that I bought yesterday for $4. The ink was already in the sac, so Iíve no idea what it is, but itís a nice shade of blue-black. I have a ton of research to do on 51s, I have a Special that I found at a rummage sale in Vermont 20 years ago thatís a great writer, but I havenít gotten into the different years and whatnot yet with these.

    Newbie here and I fired up a new-to-me Vector rollerballl. I don't know what it is... I have "better" pens but today I saw it and said what the heck. It is something about the way my life was going when I first discovered (and could afford) the Vector...it gives me warm feelings. A dependable thing in a changing world? Yes, I thought about it this much
