    Maybe a Thuya Sheaffer Targa I got the slim this year and would like to upgrade it or have a fatter sibling. I don't see next year being a big pen buying year as other hobbies are stealing the funds

    The overall trajectory for my pen... interest over the past several years has been to downsize.

    I have acquired a few Pilots in the past... four years, and these have helped to keep acquisitiveness at bay. I love writing with these pens.

    I'm still in the downsizing process (currently not making the effort to sell, but still intending to). At the back of mind, however, is the possibility of one of these days acquiring a maki-e Stylo Art with a Pilot PO nib. But it's not a priority for the foreseeable future.

    Just looking back at my list, I think I will be looking at them from the bottom up (in terms of overall desirability).

    Still, mulling over modern stuff.

    Similarly to ethernautrix I'm in the process of reducing the number of pens. I'm aiming to end up with several pens I would use daily. No wish list for the next year. Maybe a CONID and/or another Pelikan, but I can't imagine finding anything significantly better than my favourite pens I already own.

    Right now, I'm not feeling a yearning for any pen or ink. I'm hoping to use up some of what I have.

    There are a couple pens on my wishlist, but I already have one planned for my birthday (Aurora Optima orange) and got several new pens in the second half of this year,
    so I would also like to cool it, and enjoy the pens I have.

    Most of the pens on my wishlist are quite expensive so not sure if/when I'll get them:

    GvFC Snakewood F nib
    Aurora Demo with red ends
    Montblanc 146 with EF nib from mid-1990s
    Montblanc Heritage 1912, EF nib

    I've been idle at home for the last couple of days and decided to have a stroll around eBay. After about half an hour I realised that I wasn't looking at or for anything specific, like there is no direction to my search. Scary. Looking back at the list I posted at the beginning of the thread it seems that the P51 should be removed. I've had several really interesting examples that I flipped (and only after noticed that they were likely one-time only buys, same with the Duofold alas). I've not seen a Skyline in my favourite configuration for over a year now, so strike that, and W94s are harder to find than ever. I've tried searching for a Crest before with zero luck.

    Bit of a rubbish list then really. What was I thinking?!

    ...everything Pelikan 101 and 101N.
    (I would be more than happy to catch only one...)

    I'm looking for a pen that I have yet to identify:

    * The weight of a Parker 51
    * The size of a Sailor 1911M
    * A nib that writes like a Waterman No. 2 (Flexible, but can also be used as an EDC)
    * NOT a c/c or eyedropper filling system

    I hope to find something filling those requirements this year.
