    Lamy 2000 - Noodlers Black & Blue
    Lamy Studio - Noodler's Black & Blue
    TWSBI Eco - Hero Blue

    Trying to get and stay down to 2 or 3 inked at a time.
    I use a fountain pen and a paper planner - paperinkplan.wordpress.com

    Black Pelikan 400N, blue-black Pelikan ink. EF nib.
    Green striped Pelikan 400NN, dark green Pelikan ink
    A chinese pen, "Shepherd Boy", all wood, steel nib; Parker Quink Black. F nib
    A vintage 50s pen, "Pan", celluloid, gold nib, tortoise with pearly stripes, Parker Quink Black, Medium nib

    Yet to fill up a pen with a burgundy Diamine and Edelstein Onyx. I'm not that adventurous with inks, but I may experiment more. I don't have that many pens, but I am totally envious of anyone who has a full flex nib fountain pen.

    Too many to list. I have a leather case that holds 48 pens, and they range in color from yellow to various golds to various browns to various oranges to various reds to pink to various violets to various blues to various greens. Yes, it's probably excessive, but I like having a full rainbow of colors at any given moment. And when I open the case at a meeting, people are stunned.

    Wow! That's even more than I have inked! And I was worried at how many I have inked. Not that I plan the complete colour spectrum

    *Smiling* I tried fpn's OPOM (One Pen One Month) challenge for June and could only do 2POM... until June 13, at which time I had to add two pens. And a few days ago, out of curiosity, I inked up a pen I thought I might sell (and... no).

    So... the first two: Pilot 823 (PO) married for life to Noodler's Black and Nakaya Piccolo Cigar (favorite model of all brands) unpolished shu (Platinum steel EF), as of June 1, Pilot Blue, then back to Noodler's Black as of the 13th.

    Added Pilot Falcon (SEF), Pilot Blue. YES! Perfect! And another Piccolo Cigar, heki tamenuri (Platinum UEF) with Faber-Castell Stone Grey.

    The fifth pen... which might or might not stay in so-called rotation... Waterman Lady Patricia with a nib perfect for Spencerian script (which I have never attempted but have seen in action).

    These are four pens that I seem unable to leave un-inked. This might be it.

    I mean,

    you know.

    Pens.




    So sneaky.

    Pelikan Tortoise brown M101n w/med. stub - Iro. yama-guri (I really like both the pen and the ink).

    Conid Reg. Bulkfiller demonstrator w/ med. Ti nib - Iro. syo-ro. Need to change to Iro. asa-gao, and will likely use the pen much more than currently. Syo-ro just ain't my color, I guess.

    Retro 51 (P-51 Ltd. Ed.) w/ extra fine nib and Bung Box Ink of Witch. I use this one for writing checks (yes, I still use checks). The quality of the paper used for checks my bank provides has really gone down over the past year or so. Any nib broader than EF will result in unbelievable bleed thru. (Anyone else have this problem?)

    Franklin Christoph Model 45 (Vanness exclusive) with EF nib and Ink of Witch. Also a check writing pen, but it stays at home, as it is without a clip.

    I haven't done much writing lately. The last few pens I inked up all dried up. So right now I'm at a singular pen.

    Pelikan M600 Turquoise filled with Pelikan Edelstein Topaz.

    Oh dear, I use fountain pens every day, always have done. I guess it's more habit than anything else and as an act of heresy I even carry a ball point. I usually have six with ink, three in each jacket that I wear most days. After reading this thread I feel completely 'outpenned'. I have nothing in use even remotely exotic.
    In one jacket: Platignum Regal Deluxe Pressmatic with a nice 14ct gold nib, a birthday present given to me in 1959. An Esterbrook M2 made in the UK with Pitmans Shorthand nib for making notes for when I am too lazy to write Longhand, bought for school in 1961. For back up a Queensway 33 which in later years was sold as a Conway Stewart. In my other jacket, Platignum Shorthand Pen, an Osmiroid and a new acquistion, a dollar 717i, which was on offer two for £2.99, I have written with a lot worse than that one! I have always kept my pens in the outside top pocket, never thought anyone would notice what pens I use but now I now wonder if I should keep them hidden away in an inside pocket I have always used Parker Quink, no reason really, it's about the only one in the shops these days.

    That's a fine collection of a particular period in British pen history. The Platignum Regal Deluxe Pressmatic, especially, is an underrated gem. I would guess that there won't be many Esterbrook M2s around with a Pitman Shorthand nib. All treasured pens, I imagine. The Dollar pen is remarkable. They mostly write and write well for less than the cost of a bag of sweets.
