    A few....

    A 120 given years ago as a gift, an M2x with TIPPED italic nib that writes beautifully, and lately an M600 with black and red stripes. I wouldn't mind adding a couple more, especially lower-end moderns with steel nibs, or vintage models.

    This is not counting all the Pelikanos and Juniors lying around.
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!

    My eBooks. Because why not.

    Two: a Souverän 800 brown and gold (F) and an M101N Bright Red (F) limited edition which isn't really bright red but more of a tomato soup shade.

    Both of them write really well.

    Thanks! It is nice that you commented and reminded me of the pens that I have. As in, I've been on a bit of a hiatus pen purchase-wise, and pretty much content just using my three EDC Pelikans. Acquiring new "vintage" pens is always nice but it is important to also remember the good that one already has.

    Too many. Four M800s and a M215. Maybe it's time to release a couple M800s into the wild...

    Lots of vintage including various 100/100N/101/101N/140/400/400N/400NNs, a couple of MC120s, lots of M100/200/205s, both old style and new.

    Some M600s (still not sure about these).

    The heavier Souveräns have left the building - I just don't get on with the weight or the nibs.

    And there's a Celebry P580 that needs to be sold - the balance is all wrong for me, which is a shame because the nib's lovely.

    Well, at least it's not tomato soup and M 200 cafe creme, which would be a really horrible mix! :-)

    That's a gorgeous collection. I think it needs the vibrant green 600 to sit next to the orange (yes, I have both). The lizard and the brown tortoise/brilliant red pairing are superb.

    What's the one with the rings on the barrel? Very good looking.

    Thanks so much for your kind words about my rather humble "collection." Actually, I call my assortment of pens a "hoard" rather than a "collection." The latter generally implies some sort of direction, a goal, whereas the former is a jumbled potpourri of myriad pens. I tend to just buy what I like and if it turns out I don't end up liking it, try to sell the pen, usually at a substantial loss. Yes! I would love to find a vibrant green with a fine of extra fine nib. I am also on the hunt for the "Hemingway" M800 (the one with the brown cap and orange barrel) and the first M101N. So I almost forgot to answer your question regarding the pen with the rings: it is a M215 "rings" from the classic collection. I have it fitted with a gold nib that is designed for the M400 series but thanks to a sale I was able to pick one up in a Fine and swap the OE Stainless nib out for the gold. Great writing pen.
