    Montblanc Jules Verne, Medium nib.

    Loved Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. This pen is the spirit of all that, and Captain Nemo.

    I use it every day to write my morning pages (http://juliacameronlive.com/basic-tools/morning-pages/ ),with Noodler's Eel Cactus Fruit ink.

    Four writing instruments in yesterday. Pilot Elite, Pilot Prince, Caran d'Ache Nespresso pen and the Caran d'Ache Mario Botta 2mm pencil. And that's probably it for me till next month!
    Looking for Caran d'Ache Type 55 2mm set and Rotation .7 pencils.

    Two PenBBS 308’s in Cloud and Pink Ice, respectively. These are my firsts with the brand, and they will not likely be the last. (Got my eye on one of the Hawaii variants, and debating seeing how the 309 works out.)

    Not pictured, a black TWSBI eco, a blue Pilot Plumix, and the “free.99” Charlie, included with my bottle of Whaleman’s sepia.

    Five spare Baoer 388s finally arrived, and went in the drawer with my spare Wing Sung 3008s. No more pens for me now, I'm set for life. Happy days.

    This Sheaffer Balance 350 came to me pretty banged up with a petrified sac.

    With a new sac installed and a bit of gentle sanding and buffing ...



    Here is a pic showing the barrel after buffing and the cap as I received it.



    Ok, it is still user grade but looks nicer now. The nib is roughly equivalent to Pilot fine and about as firm. I'll test it out some this week.

    A pair of the Loiminchay "Door Gods" pens. Well used and dirty. I was trying to figure out how they work so I can could them up a bit.
    Turns out they're broken, but I did manage to clean up the exterior and the nibs.

    Now I have a pair of nice decorations. (Not that I was likely to write with them anyway...).
    At 6 1/2" inches long, they make perfect bookends for my colletion.

    Maybe they're just dip pens?
    Picture would be good....

    I was able to pick up a Visconti Homo Sapiens Elegance from Cult Pens on clearance cheep. Getting a $560 pen for $244 was a deal! They also included initials for free...
    I have been using it for a few days now and I am loving it. No issues with the nib or anything else.
