    I am waiting for a green and a petrol Lamy Safari, and a purple Pilot Metropolitan (European version). I had a difficulty to choose between the green and pink Safari, but since a purple FP is coming in, I didn't saw quite the need for a pink one.
    Perhaps one day I can get the dark lilac Safari.....

    Argh, decisions, decisions!

    Nibs? You didn't mention the nibs you chose.

    I picked medium for my Pilot and the petrol Safari. The green safari has a left handed nib, just to try out.

    The first order arrived yesterday. The petrol Safari will arrive in a few days. But I can't wait to try out the Pilot and the green Safari! Though the green color has to grow on me.

    Beautiful pen, Will. Last year I looked at the Bexley Demeter as a cheaper alternative (and because I got burned on an Endura before that) but at the end of the day it's not the same thing at all.

    Nice work. That baby is just glistening. Absolutely gorgeous. What’s the nib?

    Ah yes, the Demeter. I once wondered if those live up to their inspiration.

    The nib is a Conklin Toledo semiflex. I'll be using this pen to do a sketch (or two), I'll post some shots with the nib open.

    Such an excellent pen and great work on your part! I've only got Lapis in one of the smaller sizes and I haven't been chasing the full and oversize models for a while. Maybe in my retirement. Certainly you've set a high bar! Beautiful color on this one.

    I missed out on the Sapporo Mini and just recently acquired this Nagasawa 'PenStyle' MEMO in Yellow with an H-F 14k nib... and I'm thrilled!

    Thanks, Jon. The blue lapis tend to be preserved better on a Conklin (as opposed to Wahl or Parker) at least in my observation.
