    Default What is your latest pen acquisition?

    Hi guys.

    I searched for such a thread here, and I couldn't find any.
    So: Please feel free to share your latest pen acquisition.

    Cheers,

    Maria.

    I just got these two in the mail Friday. This is a Parker 51 set in Nassau Green.

    The next pen is an Esterbrook Dollar Fifty pen and pencil in the rare Green Cracked Ice pattern. I have been looking for these for a long time.

    A Jinhao Dragon Offspring. This pen writes wonderfully, looks great and has dragons!!

    The clip is a dragon; there is a dragon embossed on the body, and the large two toned nib has a dragon etched on it.

    My TWSBI Vac 700 arrived about a week ago. I am waiting for my FP Revolution Delli to arrive. I ordered it with a stub nib (my first) and a spare fine nib in case I don't like the stub.

    I'm not an expert on this (far from it), but is that a vintage Duofold pencil? Some flea markets you have in Copenhagen.

    If I mention a supplier, I am ONLY affiliated if I EXPLICITLY say so.

    I was thinking the same thing - both the Duofold looking pencil and the treasure trove of a flea market. Very nice!

    But I won't feel too sorry for myself -- I did receive today a Namiki faceted Vanishing Point in deep blue, with a 14K medium nib custom ground to a cursive italic. I've been wanting a classic VP for a while.

    A Bexley Corona in Summer Sunset. Arrived yesterday. Opened box. It was love at first sight. For awhile I'll be sneaking around on my Sheaffer Targa, the pen I've carried most often recently.

    Procyon, the Parker 51 set is fantastic. It looks mint!

    The 51 set is very lightly used, but there are a couple of tiny dings in the cap. It writes really great. I filled it up several days ago and have been using it regularly.

    Although the Nassau set is great, the Estie set was the real coup. The green cracked ice pen is very rare, and the pencil is virtually impossible to find. It is also about the flashiest celluloid ever used on a pen.

    An Aurora Optima for a smokin' price. Looks to be an early modern one with the plain Aurora nib, too. Can't wait.
